New Yorkers got exactly what they asked for when they elected Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. They wanted a Democrat Socialist in office to change the very fabric of the American way of life.
After unveiling her “Green New Deal,” a project that would cost tens of trillions to the American taxpayer, AOC said it would be a “massive government takeover.”
From Daily Wire:
Socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) lied about her “Green New Deal” on Thursday, saying that it is not a “massive government takeover” hours after admitting the exact opposite.
AOC: “One way that the Right does try to mischaracterize what we’re doing as though it’s like some kind of massive government takeover. Uh, obviously what we’re trying to do is, well obviously it’s not that because what we’re trying to do is release the investments from the federal government to mobilize those resources across the country.”
The funny thing is that Ocasio-Cortez said the exact opposite earlier in the day.
Host Steve Inskeep: “As you know, congresswoman, one reason that people who are politically conservative are skeptical of efforts to combat climate change is that it sounds to them like it requires massive government intervention which they just don’t like. Are you prepared to put on the table that yes, they’re actually right, what this requires is massive government intervention?”
AOC: “It does. It does. Yeah, I have no problem saying that.”
More on the “Green New Deal,” via Daily Caller:
Democrats are increasingly lining up to support a “Green New Deal,” which, while vague on details, could end up being the largest expansion of government in decades.
Ocasio-Cortez’s “Green New Deal” calls for creating a House committee to draft legislation to fight global warming and turn the U.S. economy into something akin to what Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders envisions. Indeed, the “Green New Deal” could be a preview of what policies the Democratic Party will back in the 2020 elections.
Those goals include moving the U.S. to 100 percent green energy, federal job guarantees for workings forced out of their fossil fuel jobs, guaranteed minimum income and universal health care.
On top of that, the non-energy-related portions of the Green New Deal could cost trillions more, including universal health care and guaranteed income.
Ocasio-Cortez was recently busted for lying about her comments on Israel.
From Daily Wire:
In an interview this week, socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) lied about remarks she made in July 2018 during an interview on PBS’s “Firing Line With Margaret Hoover,” falsely claiming that the video clip of her saying that Israel was occupying Palestine was “doctored.”
Ocasio-Cortez made the false claim during an interview with The Intercept, saying that the video “got doctored and then the doctored video was the one that ended up on Fox News and then like everyone just sees the doctored version instead of the actual exchange.”
Ocasio-Cortez’s comments garnered national attention after The Daily Wire reported on her anti-Israel remarks on July 15. The report contained the following video, which was viewed millions of times:
