Democratic representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has returned to the republics because of her criticism of the talk of renting difficulties in Washington, DC, as well as in the New York Bronx, the area she represents.
Prior to joining, Ocasio-Cortez said she had to wait for her to pay her in the Congress before she could afford her apartment in the capital of the country, the fifth most expensive city in the United States.

In November, she said, "There are many ways in which our electoral system is not designed or prepared for the working class people to lead."
Having faced the reaction because of her honesty, with some commentators accusing him of announcing the "work," Ocasio-Cortez responded to critics on Sunday for "cheap filming".
What Republicans are taking cheap snapshots forget to mention it is the problem of giving another apartment.
I live in the Bronx and work in DC. You need a place in both.
But I understand that I can not imagine a life where people do not have two homes. https://t.co/K2cxCcRyk9

"What Republicans are taking cheap snapshots forget to mention it is a difficulty in giving another apartment," Ocasio-Cortez said on Twitter on Sunday.
"I live in the Bronx and work in D.C. I need a place in both. But I understand that I can not imagine a life where people do not have two homes."
The New York congressman reacted on a Twitter by activist Jordaan Uhla, who said "it was great that @AOC could hold the rent during the campaign, especially during the post-election / previous spell in the period.
Responding to a tweet by Candace Owens who accused Ocasio-Cortez of being "so fiscally irresponsible that he did not save enough money to rent an apartment in Washington, DC," Uhl wrote, "Imagine that labor guilt can not pay a rent in DC * and * NYC [conveniently omitted from Candace’s tweet] not a problem that can be attributed to low wages that fail to track inflation and the cost of living.
"The expectation that it will easily put serious cash into another highly paid area is ridiculous and only confirms the idea that the wealthy are worthy of choice," Uhl said.

According to Rentcafé, which gives insight into rental market trends, the average rental price for a one-bedroom apartment in the Bronx is $ 1,764 per month, while in Washington D.C. average rental price for 1 bedroom apartment $ 1,996.
Since her election victory in November, Ocasio-Cortez, 29, was faced with intense control by Republican commentators and politicians, particularly because of her clothing, financial status, and level of experience.
Many critics also tried to isolate her personal story of coming from the working class, as her family moved from the Bronx to Westchester County suburb when she was two years old.
