New York Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez just made the biggest blunder of her life.
She may never recover from this disaster.
That’s because Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez declared this victory that instantly blew up in her face.
Upon entering Congress, Ocasio-Cortez made so-called “man-made global warming” her centerpiece agenda item.
Ocasio-Cortez led a sit-in of over 200 left-wing protesters in Nancy Pelosi’s office before the new Congress convened.
And after it did, Ocasio-Cortez began making hysterical predictions that the planet only had 12 years left to survive unless the government enacted radical policies to address so-called “climate change.”
Ocasio-Cortez even compared the fight against “man-made global warming” to the fight against the Nazis or declaring war on the Japanese after Pearl Harbor.
But none of that foolishness compared to when Ocasio-Cortez responded to a tweet where a left-wing group praised her and Bernie Sanders for introducing legislation that would cap credit card interest rates at 15 percent.
Now, a politician praising themselves on social media is nothing new.
However, Ocasio-Cortez found herself in hot water because she wrote that her interest rate bill would be another victory, just like her fight for the “Green New Deal.”
Ocasio-Cortez tweeted, “We chose to go on the climate offense with the #GreenNewDeal. As a result, climate denial is now a losing position + we got GOP (incl #WheresMitch!) to finally admit that climate change is real + man-made. Now it’s time to go after predatory lending. Whose side is the GOP on?”
Americans wondered what the heck Ocasio-Cortez was talking about.
The “Green New Deal” went down as one of the most embarrassing political defeats in American history.
Ocasio-Cortez introduced the communist scheme to much fanfare, but it quickly devolved into a national punchline.
The proposed “solution” to so-called climate change was eliminating cow farts and slashing Americans consumption of hamburgers.
Ocasio-Cortez’s proposed “Green New Deal” would also ban fossil-fuel powered cars and airplanes.
In addition, it called for taxpayer funded welfare checks to go to Americans who “did not want” to work.
Republicans could not believe their political good fortune when the “Green New Deal” came out.
Donald Trump hoped to frame the 2020 election as the Trump economic boom versus the Democrats vision for Venezuelan-style socialism.
So Republicans put the “Green New Deal” up for a vote and called the Democrats bluff.
Democrats – who hoped to get the three seats necessary to flip control of the Senate – ran for cover.
A motion to advance the debate on the “Green New Deal” failed 57-0—with the Democrats joining the entire Republican caucus in cosigning Ocasio-Cortez’s preposterous “Green New Deal” to the dustbin of history.
Given the fact that her signature proposal could not garner even one Democrat vote, Americans are scratching their heads as to why in the world Ocasio-Cortez is holding it up as a model of political victory.
