So whats the issue? Ocasio-Cortez omits that for most of her formative years, she was actually raised in one of the United States wealthiest counties.
Why am I not surprised?

But she is really down for the struggle, bro.
Another phony, commie wannabe fraud. So what else is new?
As long as the media proclaims her the patron of the dispossessed, her family wealth will not be a factor.
Power to the people!!
Yo, the struggle is reals.
From article, at link....
...Westchester County which the Washington Post, in a glowing profile on Ocasio-Cortez, describes as only middle class ranks #8 in the nation for the counties with the highest average incomes among the wealthiest one percent of residents. According to the Economic Policy Institute, the countys average annual income of the top one percent is a staggering $4,326,049.
Yorktown Heights, specifically, offers a sharp contrast from Bronx living. According to USA.com, the towns population is 81 percent white, and median household income is $96,413 nearly double the average for both New York state and the nation, according to data from 2010-2014.
The 28-year-olds far-left platform includes abolishing ICE, universal guaranteed employment, and Medicare for all. In an interview with CNN, Ocasio-Cortez said she supports impeaching President Trump, despite warnings from Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) to avoid the issue.
Helps explain why she’s a socialist with no appreciation of the cost of all the programs she’s pushing - people raised with a lot of money always seem to think there’s more out there for the taking - the poor seem to have a much better understanding of how hard it is to pay for things......
The militant crowd in the 1960s who told youth to not trust anyone over 30 were dangerously close to 30 themselves. Additionally, they came from wealth.
But kill your parents to prove you’re down with the struggle. < /sarc >
But seriously several stateside left-wing radicals did tell their followers to kill their own parents. Would’ve made Chairman Mao proud.
Is she connected to Soros??
Send her to Cuba for a month, then to Venezuela for a month, with no extra supplies.
Sweetheart, this is how your sweet Socialism ALWAYS ends up....there is no exception.......
And if you refuse to believe this, you are not only brainwashed, but blind.
Kind of like Bernie....another “poor” socialist.
Is she connected to Soros??
Aren’t they all???
(Not being snarky. I just imagine this one is, too.)
Yeah, she’s gonna man the barricades, right after she finishes that Starbucks latte. And the “common folk” are welcome in her home...
...to clean it.
Does growing-up in a wealthy county make one rich?
Are genuine proletariats ever the leaders of socialist/ communist movements? Nay, they are usually self-hating bourgeoisie.
Do we think Trump can deal with a snotty, lying, fake socialist from Westchester?
Rules for finding bad neighborhoods: Never live anywhere with North, South, East or West in the name.
On the other hand if the town has "Heights" in the name it's probably, with few exceptions, a pretty nice place - I'm thinking Shaker Heights, Arlington Heights, Brooklyn Heights, etc.
