AOC Contradicts Herself on Big Government Intervention Involved in Green New Deal

Cabot Phillips of Campus Reform ventured to the University of Miami to discuss Ocasio-Cortez's plan with students and gauge their thoughts on the deal.

The odd provision seemingly requiring men to recycle their urine to be used in preparing coffee or juice was not a genuine section of the Green New Deal.

He said Ocasio-Cortez does not support some of the more outlandish left-wing proposals, which were saved before they were taken off her website.

"I think one way that the right does try to mischaracterize what we're doing, as though it's like some kind of massive Government takeover", she told MSNBC's Chuck Todd in an exclusive interview.

"It's definitely a great idea". "From knowing who's endorsed it and some little things, it sounds great", mused another.

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

"If we didn't do that, we'd be killing ourselves basically". And I think we have to set our sights high.

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

Called the Green New Deal, co-sponsors of the resolution in the House of Representatives include California Congressman Ro Khanna, Colorado Congressman Joe Neguse, Washington Congresswoman Pramila Jayapal, and Wisconsin Congressman Mark Pocan.

The non-binding resolution calls for a 10-year national mobilization to shift the economy away from fossil fuels and to replace them with renewable energy sources such as wind and solar. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) explained in a video on Friday, is intentionally written as a broad prescription rather than detailed legislation, its demands for transforming the USA economy and energy system away from fossil fuels are unequivocal, as is its call to "promote justice and equity by stopping current, preventing future, and repairing historic oppression of indigenous communities, communities of color, migrant communities, deindustrialized communities, depopulated rural communities, the poor, low-income workers, women, the elderly, the unhoused, people with disabilities, and youth".
