7.) Congress Deserves MORE Money
Ocasio-Cortez, who's proposed a 70 percent tax bracket, wants $4,500 more per year. 

The increase would come on top of an average salary of $174,000 for members of Congress.

However, the proposal ground to a halt, thanks to an unlikely source: newly-elected Democrats from Republican-leaning districts fearing the optics of giving themselves more money.

AOC didn't share their concerns.

"It's not even... like... a raise," she reportedly said.

Tell that to the people in New York whose jobs you destroyed.
