Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the new Rockstar on Capitol Hill, is coming to Rye the Week of December 17th to spout the virtues of socialism. The newly elected congresswoman from the 14th district of New York is facing a dilemma that most under thirty somethings find when they move to an expensive metroplex like Washington, D.C.
To find a roommate or not is the $64,000 dollar question. Instead of swimming in the perilous waters of Craiglist’s roommate search, socialist Ocasio-Cortez is embarking on a whirlwind speaking tour in hopes to pay for a Dupont Circle one bedroom 4th floor walk-up at $2,300 dollars a month (Water and Gas included).
The Rye Record, the news source of Rye has been contacted by her advance team and will have exclusive coverage of this event. The likely destination is Ruby’s with a date and time to be confirmed later this week.
Preliminary Pricing is as follows: (1) Table reservations, $300 dollars a plate with a two-drink minimum (2) Standing room only, $50 dollars at the door with two-drink minimum.
Residents, this is a great opportunity to ask Ocasio-Cortez to dive deeper into her statement “You just pay for it” on how free medical coverage, tuition free college, and guaranteed housing and jobs for all 325 million Americans will be financed.
