Freshman Democrat Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (NY) can be deemed “entertaining” because she lashes out so often, yet knows so little of which she speaks.
Wednesday was no different.
While attempting to defend her far-left “Green New Deal” project, AOC went ballistic.
Here’s the proof…
WOW! Tell us how you really feel!
The Senate voted Tuesday on Ocasio-Cortez’s “Green New Deal,” a project that would cost upwards of $100 trillion taxpayer dollars.
Things didn’t work out in AOC’s favor – not by a long shot.
Four Democrats sided with Republicans and voted “No,” while 43 Dems voted “present.”
In other words, not one member of the Senate voted “yes.”
U.S. Senate fails to advance resolution calling for debate on #GreenNewDeal.
0 – Yea
57 – Nay
43 – Present

From Fox News:
The Green New Deal, a sweeping Democratic proposal for dealing with climate change, fell at the first hurdle Tuesday as the Senate failed to reach the 60 votes necessary to begin debate on the non-binding resolution, with 42 Democrats and Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., voting “present.”
No senator voted to begin debate on the legislation, while 57 lawmakers voted against breaking the filibuster. Democratic Sens. Doug Jones of Alabama, Joe Manchin of West Virginia and Kyrsten Sinema of Arizona joined 53 Republicans in voting “no.” Sen. Angus King, I-Maine, who caucuses with the Democrats, also voted “no.”
The vote had been teed up by Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., in a bid to make Democratic senators — including several 2020 presidential candidates — go on the record about the measure. McConnell had called the proposal “a radical, top-down, socialist makeover of the entire U.S. economy.”

He used Reagan on a raptor, Aquaman, and Sharknado to show how insane the Green New Deal is… and it clearly worked, because it set off @AOC.

A new report suggests the real number could nearly hit $100 trillion.
That would come to, roughly, $650,000 per American household.
From Daily Wire:
Socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s (D-NY) “Green New Deal” — a massive government takeover of large portions of the U.S. economy — is projected to cost up to $93 trillion.
The enormous price tag, which amounts to over $650,000 per U.S. household, covers a low-carbon electricity grid, net zero emissions transportation system, guaranteed jobs, universal health care, guaranteed green housing, and food security.
Alexandria needs to cool her jets.
The “Green New Deal” will never come to fruition so long as
grown-ups Republicans are in charge.
And that’s the bottom line.
