AOC Is Bummed That The Green Deal Narrative Is Being Manipulated Or Something

When you release something as bad as the Green New Deal, what do you expect? Hilariously, Fox puts this in the “Entertainment” section

AOC defends Green New Deal, says narrative being ‘manipulated’ by Trump, other critics

U.S. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., appeared on a late-night comedy talk show Thursday night but was stone-cold serious in her defense of the Green New Deal, the cornerstone of her progressive agenda.

When asked by “Late Night” host Seth Meyers if President Trump’s claims that “cows farting” and “hamburgers” would be outlawed were true, Ocasio-Cortez firmly answered “No.”

“I think it’s good to see how these narratives are manipulated,” Ocasio-Cortez said, “because they’re trying to say that the Green New Deal is about what we have to give up, what we have to cut back on, when in fact the Green New Deal itself is resolution to be more expansive.

Here it comes

“It is to be able to generate more,” she continued, “and to make sure that we’re investing in working-class Americans so that we all can afford to have more in life, so that an affordable apartment isn’t a dream but a norm and that health care is a right and not a privilege.”

The self-described Democratic socialist stressed that the Green New Deal she introduced in February “is not a bill,” but a “resolution” that doesn’t require the president’s signature.

If we passed a resolution in the House, it doesn’t go into the Senate and it doesn’t go to the president,” she explained. “It is a House resolution. It is a declaration. It is an intentional, vision document. … Listen, if we’re going to make progress, we need to declare our North Star, and our North Star is 100 percent renewable energy, it’s Medicare For All, it’s tuition-free public colleges, it’s investing in technology and renewable resources and electric vehicles. … The resolution of the Green New Deal is the vision of what we need to accomplish in the next ten years.”

I thought it was about ‘climate change’? No?

BTW, when is she going to force the House to vote on this resolution?

    Welcome to politics, kid. It’s a jungle out there.

    PS Breitbart says Mule Ears recommends no more indictments.

    SAY IT AIN’T SOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    So there really was no there there. This is why they waited until the markets closed. They wanted something to show for all the wasted effort even if it was just some spite.
