Politicians on both sides of the aisle are often caught spouting falsehoods.
Ocasio-Cortez is by far and away one of the worst and it’s kind of not even close.
The latest example…
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.”
AOC tonight: “One way the Right tries to mischaracterize what we’re doing as though it’s like some kind of massive government takeover…obviously it’s not”

So, which is it, Alexandria?
For some reason, spending countless trillions on liberal policies until the end of time is no problem whatsoever but $5 billion for the border wall is preposterous.
The Democrat Socialist’s proposed Green New Deal proposal would cost tens of trillions of dollars, and apparently has the support of over 40 Democrats in Congress.
From 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.
The New York representative wants Immigrations and Customs Enforcement (ICE) “scrapped.”
You know, because America shouldn’t have the right to keep out people who shouldn’t be here, or something.
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez said Sunday night in a social media post that the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agency should be “scrapped” altogether.
One of these days, I hope people realize that the idea that ICE should be scrapped isn’t so crazy after all.
ICE jails children in for-profit detention centers funded by private equity grps. Kids are dying w/ 0 accountability. If that’s not totally broken, I don’t know what is. https://t.co/AlMgLiHVnu

The Congresswoman knows very little of which she speaks.
