WISHFUL THINKING: AOC Calls ‘New Deal’ a ‘Winning Policy’ Despite Failing to Gain a Single ‘Yes’ Vote

Recently sworn-in Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez continued to tout her ‘Green New Deal’ Monday; bizarrely labeling the stalled legislation a “winning policy” despite failing to secure a single “yes” vote in the United States Senate.

“The #GreenNewDeal, as much as GOP hiss, scream, storytell & cry about it, has forced even the most entrenched Tea Partiers into publicly abandoning their climate denial stance. The reason they’re so focused on discrediting the GND is because it’s a winning policy,” posted Ocasio-Cortez on social media.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell brought her ‘Green New Deal’ to a full Senate vote earlier this year, with every single Democrat voting “present” rather than fully supporting the massive government program.
