New York Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez knows how to get attention.
Whether or not this is a good thing is up for debate.
And Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is in big trouble for what she got caught doing.
As Great American Daily reports:
Ocasio-Cortez stood up in Congress to propose a communist amendment that would limit American oil and natural gas leases to comply with the radical Green New Deal agenda contained in Barack Obama’s globalist Paris climate change accords.
The left’s solutions for climate change always involve higher taxes, the destruction of industry and the redistribution of American wealth and jobs to nations around the globe.
Ocasio-Cortez showed her ignorance of basic economics falsely claiming that increasing supply will not decrease prices.
“We know that leasing more land to fossil fuel companies does not guarantee that gas prices will drop,” Ocasio-Cortez began. “As we’ve seen this past year, even when these companies have record profits they do not pass along those savings to their consumers. What leasing more land does do, however, is guarantee that we will accelerate the devastating impact of climate change.”
South Carolina Congressman Jeff Duncan challenged Ocasio-Cortez’s childlike ignorance on economics and science pointing out that natural gas — the energy source Ocasio-Cortez wants to destroy — caused the decrease in carbon emissions that Ocasio-Cortez claims is vital to saving the planet.
“Go and learn for yourself about this,” Duncan stated. “Educate yourself on how America attained its low emissions. You care about the air quality, you care about climate change. Natural gas is what got America there. Educate yourself on that.”
But rather than debate the merits of energy or economic policy Ocasio-Cortez played the victim card claiming Congressman Duncan personally attacked her by addressing his remarks to her instead of the chair which is customary under the rules of parliamentary procedure.
“I understand in this body it’s not the first time that it seems as though the opposing side can’t seem to be able to debate the issue,” Ocasio-Cortez complained. “And so, they must come after my character.”
“My mission here is for the well-being and dignity of our family and our planet’s future, for our children’s ability to live on this planet,” Ocasio-Cortez continued. “That is what this amendment is about.”
The climate change hysterics like Ocasio-Cortez do not want to debate facts or science.
