Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez can’t seem to help herself. She is so far-left at this point that she can’t see straight.
Case in point: she’s now pretty much talking about hamburger regulation.
Yeah, for real.
During an appearance on Showtime’s Desus & Mero, she said, “In the deal, what we talk about — and it’s true, is that we need to take a look at factory farming, you know? Period. It’s wild. And so it’s not to say you get rid of agriculture. It’s not to say we’re gonna force everybody to go vegan or anything crazy like that. But it’s to say, ‘Listen, we gotta address factory farming.”
She noted: “Maybe we shouldn’t be eating a hamburger for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.”

Democrats are generally loving AOC’s plan. Conservatives on Twitter took notice, with one person saying “Donald Trump just won 2020.”
This is insane. Donald Trump just won 2020.

Excited to join @AOC & @SenMarkey on a historic #GreenNewDeal resolution to address the peril of climate change and worsening inequality. Our history is a testimony to the achievement of what some think is impossible — we must take bold action now.

Confronting climate change is the defining challenge of our time, and also an opportunity to create millions of jobs building a more just, inclusive and innovative clean energy economy. This has to be our focus #GreenNewDeal

Climate change is an existential disaster facing the entire world. We must transform our energy system away from fossil fuels to energy efficiency and sustainable energy. A Green New Deal can save the planet and create millions of new jobs.

A #GreenNewDeal is ambitious. It's bold. And I’m cosponsoring this resolution with @aoc and @senmarkey because it’s exactly the kind of action it will take to conquer the biggest threat of our lifetime. https://t.co/CfQFgBnlat

If we want to live in a world with clean air and water, we have to take real action to combat climate change now. I'm proud to join @RepAOC and @SenMarkey on a #GreenNewDeal resolution to fight for our planet and our kids’ futures.

Fox News has more:
The Green New Deal nonbinding congressional resolution unveiled by Democratic lawmakers Thursday calls for economically destructive and environmentally toxic extremist policies that would be an utter disaster for our country and the American people.
The radical and impractical plan could suck trillions of dollars out of our economy, raise costs of much of what we buy, wipe out millions of jobs and plunge our country into a recession or perhaps even a depression. It would be a self-inflicted wound causing enormous harm to us all.
Socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., and Sen. Ed Markey, D-Mass., released the proposal, elements of which have already drawn support from some congressional Democrats, including several seeking their party’s presidential nomination.
Lol they’re literally re-electing trump

The proposal is so all over the place and strange. Why the bizarre focus on intersectionality in a enviro proposal. Tons of stuff about totally unrelated topics. Completely achievable drivel. It doesn't seem like anyone thought it through.

Asking for details would be hate speech.

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.
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.
