Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) and members of her legislative team were caught in a pickle this week after she denied that a fact sheet about her Green New Deal resolution was released from her office.

The so-called Green New Deal came under fire nearly immediately from Republicans, saying it would cost trillions of dollars, would destroy the US economy and result in huge tax increases.

Still, Ocasio-Cortez's team made the rounds on the media telling reporters that the FAQ document was doctored or not sanctioned by her team. "I like that it's gonna push the world forward to where we need to be", another said.

"It's definitely a great idea".

"I think one way that the right does try to mischaracterize what we're doing, as though it's like some kind of massive Government takeover", she told MSNBC's Chuck Todd in an exclusive interview. "From knowing who's endorsed it and some little things, it sounds great", mused another. "So we need to take care of ourselves".




That figure appeared to be based on a survey conducted in December, two months before the release of the Green New Deal resolution by the Yale Program on Climate Change Communication, was funded by a handful of liberal foundations, including anti-Trump billionaire Tom Steyer's TomKat Foundation. "I have enlisted all of you as my co-conspirators, so you're going to help me legally get away with all of this", she says.

"Anything that would reduce our dependence on fossil fuels is really important".

The ads, issued four days after Ms. Ocasio-Cortez's much-mocked New Green Deal rollout, offered more proof that Republicans plan to leverage the hotly contested climate resolution in their bid to retake the House in 2020.

"I don't think that that is something that would be able to be done in such a short amount of time", one student said. I have a 10-year-old and 7-year-old.

Some of the strongest responses came to Ocasio-Cortez's team's goal laid out in the since-deleted FAQ of giving every American "economic security" even if they are "unable or unwilling to work".
