It's not dying I'm talking about, it's living.

I’m curious, where does she live now and how does she pay rent? Or did we elect someone to the US Congress that lives for free in their parents basement?

the socialist from New York is a dumbass like all socialists.
I’d say this is truth that is obvious and cannot be argued much like daytime is bright, night time is dark.

It is kind of an issue. Yall bitch about her but this is someone who is clearly not a career politician and didn't buy their way into office. Regardless of political affiliation I think more people like her in Congress is a good thing. But now she has to maintain residences in two of the most expensive places to live in the country.

I'd think some sort of housing stipend for congressmen helps this but it is an issue. You want more middle class in Congress instead of the 1% then we need to make sure salary isn't an issue.

I understand your point overall about good to have a non career politician. But she is clearly fairly ignorant of a lot of important items. Maybe she can educate herself quickly, but I don’t understand how someone can currently view her as qualified.

The dims have a long history of this. Most notably, Barry the Community Organizer has never accomplished a thing.

If this chick can't make it on $150k per year, something is wrong. Besides, I guarantee you she'll have a fat bank account very shortly.

Her salary doesn't kick in until she takes office, that's what she's whining about.

She didn't buy her primary win, her opponent outspent her. In the general election she essentially ran unopposed because Republicans have no chance in that district.
