This blows my mind: House Ethics Rules prevent me from receiving a $100 gift card, or crashing at a place as I wait for rent 💰, but somehow allow members w/ investment portfolios to write laws that will personally enrich them $1000s in their own stocks; potentially millions. t.co/E9L1cVubFe

Is it possible we got an outsider or honest politician in the House of Representatives. I know it happens occasionally but rarely, but this might be one. She’s been openly stating a lot of corrupt things about Washington from the introductions by lobbyists, this insider trading, and she denied the invitation to visit Israel with the rest of her inaugural class. The only sign of negativity from her is I think she voted for Pelosi to remain speaker. Most of them serve the corporations and lobbyists how pay them. This one might be different in that regard and actually want to serve the people?
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez needs a break.
The Bronx-bred democratic socialist heading into her freshman term in the House of Representatives announced Monday she’s taking some time off to take care of herself before she officially starts her new job — and she’s taking her supporters along for the ride.
“I’m taking a few days to take care of myself before what is sure to be an eventful term,” the incoming New York congresswoman tweeted.
“For working people, immigrants, & the poor, self-care is political — not because we want it to be, but bc of the inevitable shaming of someone doing a face mask while financially stressed. So I’ve decided to take others along with me on IG as I learn what self-care even means and why it’s important.”
