Far left Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is very proud of her dumpster fire resolution, known as the Green New Deal. Nancy Pelosi won’t touch it with a ten foot pole, but AOC is now bragging that all the Democrats running for 2020 support it.
The Washington Free Beacon reports:
Ocasio-Cortez: ‘Every Democratic Presidential Candidate’ Supports Green New Deal
Freshman Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D., N.Y.) on Saturday touted “every Democratic presidential candidate” supporting her Green New Deal resolution.
Ocasio-Cortez, a self-proclaimed democratic socialist, spoke at her inaugural ceremony in the Bronx, where she touted her support from 2020 Democrats in the battle against climate change.
“The Green New Deal that we introduced two weeks ago, which was an amazing step forward, when we first were engineering it before it was introduced they were saying, ‘She’s divisive. She’s too confrontational. No one will sign onto a single piece of legislation that she introduced,'” said Ocasio-Cortez.
“We were able to to introduce a resolution in both chambers co-sponsored by every presidential candidate, every Democratic presidential candidate and 65 House members,” Ocasio-Cortez continued.

If it’s so popular with Democrats, why did they freak out when Mitch McConnell said the Senate would vote on it?

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s ‘Green New Deal’ accidentally exposes the left’s big lie
Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s now infamous talking points on the Green New Deal are the most unintentionally honest explanation of the neo-socialism now gripping the Democratic Party. Too honest, apparently. After her office sent the “FAQ” to NPR, The Washington Post and other news organizations, and posted a similar version on her congressional website, they were met with withering criticism — prompting Ocasio-Cortez to furiously backtrack, seeking to disown and discredit documents her office had produced, posted and distributed.
Sorry, you don’t get to do that. Ocasio-Cortez told us what is really behind her Green New Deal. Now she, and the Democrats who endorsed her plan, have to live with it.
Ocasio-Cortez has been pilloried for her plan to “get rid of farting cows and airplanes,” upgrade or replace “every building in America,” replace “every combustible-engine vehicle” and provide “economic security” for people “unwilling to work” — and rightly so. The old five-year plans of the former Soviet Union are modest, by comparison, in their pursuit of full socialism.
Democrats may ultimately regret giving so much attention to a freshman rep with socialist ambitions.
