WASHINGTON – Democratic New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez recorded a video Wednesday night about working long hours in her new congressional position, adding she’s barely even had time to buy furniture.
Ocasio-Cortez said she works constantly and hasn’t had time to truly settle into her new home because of it.
“Um, the thing they don’t tell you about working in Congress is that if you do what you’re supposed to do, you’re working all the time — which means that you have no time to, like, set up your life, so I spent weeks sleeping on an air mattress,” she said.
” … and I don’t own a chair,” Ocasio-Cortez added. “So I’m gonna try to do that.”

Big Tech is using a content filtering system for online censorship. Take a few moments and watch our short video about NewsGuard to learn how they control the narrative for the Lamestream Media and help keep you in the dark. NewsGuard works with Big-Tech to make it harder for you to find certain content they feel is 'missing context' or stories their editors deem "not in your best interest" - regardless of whether they are true and/or factually accurate. They also work with payment processors and ad-networks to cut off revenue streams to publications they rate poorly by their same bias standards. This should be criminal in America.
