Ocasio-Cortez Lies About Her Plan Requiring 'Massive Government Takeover' Hours After Admitting The Opposite

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.

During an interview on MSNBC, Ocasio-Cortez criticized the political Right, saying that the Right was trying to "mis-characterize" her plan.

"One way that the Right does try to mis-characterize what we’re doing as though it’s like some kind of massive government takeover," Ocasio-Cortez said. "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."

Yet this morning, during a radio interview with NPR, Ocasio-Cortez said the exact opposite.

"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," host Steve Inskeep said. "Are you prepared to put on the table that yes, they’re actually right, what this requires is massive government intervention?"

She is dumber than a box of rocks. Give everybody everything but doesn't have a clue how to pay for it with trillions of dollars. She is too stupid to realize that any money the government has or comes up with comes from the taxes they get from taxpayers. So we are getting nothing for free from the government. We are footing the bill for all of it.

Hoping this flash in the pan nitwit is just that. I cannot believe she was elected to congress.

She needs to leave this country and go to Cuba or Venezuela. They would be glad to have her there.
