Ocasio-Cortez Challenged to Debate by GOP Lawmaker

(NewsReady.com) – On April 20, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) reintroduced the Green New Deal. Republicans are vehemently opposed to the plan, and now, one congresswoman wants to debate AOC about it.

On Wednesday, April 21, Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA) told AOC she wants to debate with her about the Green New Deal. She said she read “all 14 pages” and she’s ready to schedule the match-up.

A couple of days later, on Friday, Greene slammed AOC for being a “climate conspiracy [theorist]” who is spreading fear in order to force people to listen to her “demands.”

Greene believes that passing the radical Leftist plan would force other countries to start relying on Russia and China. The congresswoman says a debate with her colleague would be beneficial to the American people because they will hear the pros and cons from both sides. Republicans have a climate plan as well, but theirs will focus on making clean energy “more affordable, and more exportable.”

AOC has not responded to Greene’s request for a debate.
