What is it with these privileged Socialist-Democrats like Senator Bernie (3 homes in Vermont) Sanders, and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, a self-described Socialist-Democrat candidate for US Congress? Why are they so anxious to cry about the injustices of the poor, while living very comfortable lives, thanks to the benefits of capitalism? While Ocasio-Cortez’s biography tells the story of a poor little girl who grew up in the Bronx and drove 40 minutes from her home to attend better schools, her actual upbringing was much different.  Alexandria actually grew up in an upscale neighborhood, in a home that recently sold for a cool $355,000.

Say whaaaat?

The hardscrabble biography of Democrat Congressional candidate Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has been called into question after the revelation that she grew up mostly in wealthy Westchester County.

Though Ocasio-Cortez, 28, was born in and currently lives in the Bronx, county land records show her late father Sergio Cortez-Roman bought a quaint three-bedroom in Yorktown Heights, New York in 1991, when she was about two.

It is an apparent contradiction with the candidate’s official biography, which states in part: ‘The state of Bronx public schools in the late 80s and early 90s sent her parents on a search for a solution. She ended up attending public school 40 minutes north in Yorktown, and much of her life was defined by the 40-minute commute between school and her family in the Bronx.’

Ocasio-Cortez also boasted on Stephen Colbert’s late-night show that President Donald Trump, born in Queens, wouldn’t know how to handle ‘a girl from the Bronx’ such as herself.
