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.”
