posted by Hannity Staff - 2.17.21

Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez weighed-in Tuesday night on the rolling blackouts plaguing Texas; saying the power outages due to frozen wind turbines are “what happens if you don’t pursue” the Green New Deal.

“The infrastructure failures in Texas are quite literally what happens when you *don’t* pursue a Green New Deal,” posted AOC on Twitter.

“Weak on sweeping next-gen public infrastructure investments, little focus on equity so communities are left behind, climate deniers in leadership so they don’t long prep for disaster. We need to help people *now.* Long-term we must realize these are the consequences of inaction,” she added.
