The architects behind the Democrats’ ‘Green New Deal’ continued to fumble its rollout this week, with Rep. Ocasio-Cortez’ Chief of Staff saying the legislation is “about redistributing power to workers and frontline/ marginalized communities.”
“Wrong take. It’s about redistributing power to workers and frontline/marginalized communities. The government acts as a lender and investor in projects, but the resolution is actually very clear about creating community and worker wealth/ownership,” posted the key Cortez staffer.

NEVER MIND! Cortez ‘Retracts’ Info on Green New Deal, Staff Says ‘Mistakes Happen’
Liberal superstar Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez “retracted erroneous information” surrounding her Green New Deal this week; with key staffers saying “mistakes happen” after posting an “unfinished fact sheet” regarding the proposal.
“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,” said Saikat Chakrabarti, Ocasio-Cortez’s chief of staff.
“Mistakes happen when doing time launches like this coordinating multiple groups and collaborators,” added the key staffer.
Mistakes happen when doing time launches like this coordinating multiple groups and collaborators. It's hard to have both a transparent and open process with many stakeholders while keeping all info locked down. But what’s in the resolution is the GND.

Despite the “mistake,” the Green New Deal has already been endorsed by key Democrats and liberal lawmakers; including Kamala Harris, Elizabeth Warren, Cory Booker, Kirsten Gillibrand, Bernie Sanders, and others.

BOOKER GOES BERSERK: Explodes, Says ‘Green New Deal’ Same as FIGHTING NAZIS
Sen. Cory Booker doubled-down on Rep. Ocasio-Cortez’ ‘Green New Deal’ Friday; telling a crowd of supporters the fight against climate change is the same as those who fought against Nazi Germany during World War II.
“We have to deal with this, our planet is in peril. We need to be bold, that’s why I co-sponsored the resolution for the Green New Deal,” said Booker.
“We are a nation that has done impossible things before. We need to be bold again in America. When the planet has been imperiled in the past, who came forward to save earth from the scourge of Nazism? We came forward,” he added.
You can’t make this up.
