Ocasio-Cortez Deleted Embarrassing Green New Deal Policy Details

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez

US President Donald Trump has mocked the so-called Green New Deal initiative spearheaded by freshman Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (NY-14), seeking to "revolutionize" the US economy by any means necessary.

Her digital dominance is a result of not just the volume of her social media use, but her videos, viral quips and the fact that she has introduced - and aggressively defended and promoted - progressive policies around income taxes and climate change on social media, such as the Green New Deal. Ocasio-Cortez's office released the resolution to reporters on Wednesday night with a separate FAQ document that seemed to contradict some aspects of the resolution, including taking stances on nuclear energy and farming emissions that didn't appear in the official document. "It's definitely a great idea", added another.

The new push comes after President Trump failed to mention climate change in his State of the Union address last week.

"Sometimes you need to take extreme measures to save the environment, but I think this is too extreme". "From knowing who's endorsed it and some little things, it sounds great", mused another. And I think we have to set our sights high.

Some of the students made clear that they perceive global warming as an apocalyptic concern.

Winter storm watch to take effect Tuesday
High temperatures on Tuesday will be pleasant in the low 60s, but then drop Tuesday night with lows in the low to mid-30s. Despite a slightly "warmer" start, the afternoon won't be much warmer: highs stay in the upper 40s and lower 50s again.

"I think if we didn't do that, then we're gonna be killing ourselves basically, so we need to take care of ourselves", a different student said.

"Anything that would reduce our dependence on fossil fuels is really important".

In other words, the fact that the Green New Deal divides the Democratic Party is a feature, not a bug.

One of the talking points included language promising economic security for even those "unwilling to work" - something that caught the ears of conservatives who claim entitlement programs stifle work productivity (there's not much evidence to this effect). But I think the Democrats pushing the deal would agree with Senator Graham: "Let's vote on the Green New Deal!"

"Sounds like a reach, honestly", says another student, laughing.
