Congresswomen Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez doubled-down on her demands for the ‘Green New Deal’ on social media over the weekend; saying she wakes up “consumed about climate change” and the issue “really freaks her out.”
“Even while I was on vacation, I woke up in the middle of the night at 3:30 in the morning just consumed about climate change. I’m 29-years-old. I really struggle sometimes with the idea of how to be a policy maker and potentially have a family in the time of climate change,” said Ocasio-Cortez.
“It really freaks me out, and it can be really, really scary… Our glaciers are melting, our sea levels are rising, I’m scared too about the world that I’m going to be living in. I sometimes fear what we’re going to be living with when I’m 40, 50, 60 years old,” she added.

“Alright everyone, it’s been a minute, we’re coming to you live from the Electoral College… Many votes here as you can see. A very efficient way to choose leadership of the country. I can’t think of any other way, can you?” quipped Ocasio-Cortez on social media.

“Due to severe racial disparities in certain states, the Electoral College effectively weighs white voters over voters of color, as apposed to a ‘one person, one vote’ system where all our votes are counted equally,” she states.
“Could you image if we had this kind democracy-altering ‘fairness’ provision for literally any other group?” she asks. “If we weighed, for example, black and indigenous voters more because of unfairness?”
