Apparently Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has decided the full-on socialism that she ran and got elected on isn’t far left enough. Her Green New Deal is the wide road paved to communism.
It is so ridiculous it defies logic.
If you haven’t had the joy of reading it, here’s a link to the Green New Deal FAQ at NPR.
And remember. This is woman with a degree in ECONOMICS from Boston University.
Privilege is being able to put out the worst economic plan in history and still be propped up and praised by the media. pic.twitter.com/FocyCRKvuW

Here’s a bunch of responses in no particular order.
1) By the end of the Green New Deal resolution (and accompanying fact sheet) I was laughing so hard I nearly cried. If a bunch of GOPers plotted to forge a fake Democratic bill showing how bonkers the party is, they could not have done a better job. It is beautiful. #GreenNewDeal

I guarantee you in this world that Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez wants that she’ll still be flying everywhere and using a real toilet. Because those in power ALWAYS get whatever they want. It’s just the rest of us who have to give everything up.
The Green New Deal is a GOP dream, a set-piece example of everything terrifying Ds would do if they took control–from running sectors of the economy to micromanaging what planes you can take….

The Green New Deal isn't just un-American, it's also completely bonkers. https://t.co/r7VeFTAQIt

Democrats: We don't have enough money to build a wall on the southern border!
Also Democrats: Let's remodel every building in the country, build a railway to Hawaii, and give everyone free education, free housing, and free health care!

The original version of the New Green Deal included pay for people “UNWILLING TO WORK.” Not unable, but simply UNWILLING. Now they are walking that back and saying someone put that in there who shouldn’t have. Baloney. That’s exactly what they want. They just tipped their hand way too soon.
1) AOC releases a ludicrous plan. Democrats endorse it in droves, including major 2020 candidates.
2) They realize it's a huge electoral liability, as well as an embarrassment.
3) AOC's camp start lying, say it's all a mistake and gaslighting critics.

Here’s an article explaining their attempts to blame the ridiculous statements on Republicans. Really. The mysterious case of AOC’s scrubbed ‘Green New Deal’ details
This is a total lie by a Media Matters researcher. The whole organization is a dumpster fire. The unwilling to work line was in the document.

NYT reporters call typo-ridden, utterly nonsensical Green New Deal document "breathtaking."
