As Business Insider notes, Ocasio-Cortez and Ayanna Pressley, who won a House seat in MA, were critical of an orientation held at the Harvard Kennedy School.

Essentially she says, it only allows those that are rich enough, to come work for free as an intern on Capitol Hill. "Socialism is an economic system.You have to have an economic argument in order to A, sell it, and B, make it work".

On Monday, Ocasio-Cortez, who became the youngest woman elected to Congress in last month's midterms, tweeted about her experience of meeting service staff in a D.C. restaurant who were simultaneously working in government.

Ocasio-Cortez, during an appearance on "The Late Show with Stephen Colbert", fired back at Trump over his tweet, saying that she doesn't "think he knows how to deal with a girl from the Bronx". On the House side of things, 8 percent of Republicans pay their interns, compared to 3.5 percent of Democrats.

And her chief of staff told The Washington Post that they intend to pay the interns "at least" $15 an hour. And even though Democrats are more vocal about a higher federal minimum wage, they fall behind their Republican colleagues in paying their own interns any amount at all.

A study past year by Pay Our Interns found that 51 percent of Republican senators offer paid internships, compared with 31 percent of Democrats. "SEVERAL bartenders, managers, & servers *currently worked in Senate + House offices, *" she wrote. That money is in addition to the overall Members' Representational Allowance given to each lawmaker to pay staffers. Here's what the pair of them tweeted out first is Ocasio-Cortez, Ocasio-Cortez.

Democrat congresswoman-elect fact-checked for suggesting that $21 trillion in Pentagon accounting errors could help fund her proposed "Medicare for all" program.
