Republicans mock Green New Deal: 'It's loony'

'An early draft of a FAQ that was clearly unfinished and that doesn't represent the GND resolution got published to the website by mistake...'

Wanting to know if the same people who support the New Green Deal would still support it after hearing what was actually in it, Campus Reform's Cabot Phillips headed to the University of Miami to find out.

That's more than Democratic senators running for president, like Kamala Harris of California and Elizabeth Warren of MA.

During her appearance on the NPR podcast a couple of days back, Democrat Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez outlined her stance in regards to her monetary policy and how she plans to restructure the social/economic framework of the U.S. if her freshly proposed "Green New Deal" is passed by the senate.

Policy adviser to Ocasio-Cortez, Robert Hockett, said the FAQ page was a hoax.

President Trump, who's pursued a pro-fossil fuel agenda, is openly mocking the idea of a Green New Deal.

"We set a goal to get to net-zero, rather than zero emissions, in 10 years because we aren't sure that we'll be able to fully get rid of farting cows and airplanes that fast", Ocasio-Cortez said.

Hockett was apparently referring to the series of tweets the Democratic lawmaker made on Thursday, when she posted and criticized parody versions of the Green New Deal FAQ, including one that said, effective immediately, "males should urinate into an empty milk jug instead of a toilet".

Hockett later repeated that the document definitely didn't contain the line about providing security for those unwilling to work, saying that this is "erroneous".

This fake proposal circulated, but it is different from the legitimate, far-left proposals offered by Ocasio-Cortez.
