A top adviser to New York Democratic Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has admitted that an official “Green New Deal” document posted by Ocasio-Cortez’s office contained a guarantee of economic security even for those “unwilling to work” — but not before he went viral in progressive circles for claiming the exact opposite, repeatedly, in an interview with Fox News’ “Tucker Carlson Tonight.”

Cornell University Law School Professor Robert Hockett, who counsels Ocasio-Cortez on environmental initiatives, challenged host Tucker Carlson when he quoted from an outline and list of “frequently asked questions” (FAQ) that had been posted on Ocasio-Cortez’s official website. The FAQ was also shared with NPR.

The article goes on to state the following:

The FAQ stated that the program will provide “Economic security for all who are unable or unwilling to work,” and also noted, “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.”

he FAQ, which Ocasio-Cortez’s office removed from her website amid online backlash (although it is still available on NPR’s website) additionally stated, “This is a massive transformation of our society with clear goals and a timeline” at a “scale not seen since World War 2.” In another section, the FAQ stated that it had set a goal of net-zero, rather than zero, national emissions in 10 years “because we aren’t sure that we’ll be able to get rid of farting cows and airplanes that fast.”

    The most ridiculous deal I have ever seen and I am appalled that anyone could take AOC (#onewomanwreakingball) seriously. She is a lunatic and the Democrats are crazy for pushing her ideology to the fore the front. They are all showing their stupidity.

    How on earth did this complete idiot get elected? I can’t believe the Dems aren’t mortified. She’s so proud of herself…for what? Fooling the stupid voters. God help us.

    All I can say is this….if this stupid idea is forced on Americans….The Civil War will look like a street fight compared to a modern revolution!! You’ll see more than 75% of this country fight this and the ignorant 25% who support this will have their asses thrown over Trumps Big Beautiful Wall!! Just sayin!!

    It seems more and more evident that the Dems are determined to ruin this country. It is also more and more evident that they care more about getting their way than about the safety and security of American citizens. Yep, Civil War is looming.
