So, apparently, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) is a little stung by all the critics, even some on her side of the aisle, trashing her Green New Deal. It’s a wide-ranging arc of criticism, from the bill is too ambitious to it’s totally insane; it’s become the Republicans’ favorite punching bag. It is a bag of meth, folks. It’s just totally off the rails. A complete transitioning away from fossil fuels within a decade, economic assistance to those unwilling to work, upgrading all buildings to energy efficient standards, and the mass genocide of farting cows. It’s crazy. Oh, and should it shock anyone that there is no cost projections or anything about possible tax hikes. Yeah, that’s because this socialist goodie bag will cost trillions. On Friday, the left-wing congresswoman tried to hit back at her critics, noting that they should come up with a plan of their own before saying until she’s the “boss.” She made these remarks at a Girls Who Code event (via American Mirror):
...
“Some people are like, ‘Oh, it’s unrealistic, oh, it’s vague, oh, it doesn’t address this minute little thing, and I’m like, you try! You do it! ‘Cause you’re not! ‘Cause you’re not! So, until you do it, Im the boss!

“How about that?” she declared
...

townhall.com...

I tried to see if this had been posted before, but couldn't find it. I wasn't even aware of this until i saw a video of her saying it.

Apparently AOC thinks "she is the boss" even if most Americans would not side with her "Green New Deal."

This type of argument shows how "authoritarian" socialists like AOC truly are, and how dangerous someone like her would be if she ever gets leadership of the DNC, or worse yet, if too many idealistic, and unrealistic young and older people vote for her for POTUS.

This woman has been bad news from the start. It is ironic, and at the same time troubling to actually see remarks even from some ATS members that "because she infuriates the right that they would vote for her." This type of people don't care about the fact that her policies will cause more damage to the nation, and regular people when we are still recovering from the "socialist ideas of Obama."

She can't take criticism of her ideas and that shows how immature she is.

Some have asked "when has she or anyone else who is in favor of the Green New Deal ever said that these socialists want to emulate Venezuela..."
Her policies are what tells us what people like her want...

Venezuela also introduced strict rationing of electricity "to combat climate change." Socialists, including those hiding in the DNC, and all around the world have congratulated the Venezuelan dictatorship for introducing such measures which are detrimental not only to the nation itself, but foremost to the people of Venezuela.

What say you ATS about this "socialist" claiming that if you don't like her ideas she is the boss until you agree with her and implement similar ideas to hers?

I find myself feeling sad that I see these people in positions of power and that other people not only take them seriously but want them to acquire more power.

I am not too sure how it happened exactly, but it has definitely had some people of power and position behind it all to make so many people believe so much garbage at the same time.

I try to debate people, have been since I first started seeing this pseudo communist group think back in the 1990's. At first I didn't really take it all that serious because even though I knew the Dems would lean left and even lurch left if given enough power - I just never really understood how totally committed they are.

I mean across the USA you have a majority of states rejecting leftism. A super majority even. And yet on the national and federal level. Its like FULL POWER GO GO GO!!! SOCIALISM!!!! YAY!!!!

I hope that some R's start growing some chest hair and fighting back. But it doesn't seem to be anything happening on national level EXCEPT Trump.

AOC is an immature little girl with a double helping of sociopathic tendencies, and narcissism.

The biggest problem with her stupid Green New Deal is I don’t want anything that is in it and it is going to cost trillions upon trillions of dollars for literally no benefit to the citizens. It is ridiculous and shouldn’t be taken seriously nor should she.

While I absolutely agree with your assessment, I have no dog in this fight.

I'll say this, though; US politics are providing some excellent and often hilarious entertainment so please, keep it up America! 😂 👌

Sums it up. The R's got no cajones whatsoever.

That's why AOC is so effective; the Leftist Dems have no choice but to kow tow to her and the Republicans are scared to death of her.

GO AOC!

The biggest problem with the GND is aliens are going to invade because there won't be any cows left for them to mutilate if it gets passed.

Does she still get paid for the acting gig if she gets kicked out of office?

Bet none of this megalomaniac stuff came up in the casting call(couch).

Effective? She's an affluent airhead that's in too deep, but thrust into this position by powerful people hoping she can make Socialism more palatable. If she can't achieve that she's gone, or at least set on the back burner so she can be a seat holder for someone else.

People of power, and money, have been helping people like AOC, and Obama get in power because their vision includes turning the U.S. into socialism.

We just learned that some rich people just bought their children, and friend's children access to Universities and paid teachers, and institutions a lot of money to get their children A's they did not earn, as well as granting them attendance at expensive Universities which were bought off.

Now, look at AOC... Supposedly she got a degree in economics, yet she doesn't know ANYTHING about economics.
Just like Obama supposedly is a Constitutional lawyer yet he didn't seem to know even what form of government we have. He bypassed Congress and implemented laws without Congress approval. He didn't even know how many states are part of the Union.

People like AOC, and Obama are being propped up by very powerful people with a lot of power and connections simply because they all want to turn the U.S. into a socialist dictatorship.

Thanks for that link. youtube wasn't helping even when I searched the exact quote from her.

Anyway, she is even stating "she doesn't care..." Those "little minute things" she thinks don't matter will destroy this nation, and will make everyone equally poor.

Just exactly what is she effective at? Dividing her own party?

Reps are not afraid of her in the least. Just the opposite, in fact. They love the fact that her high visibility allows them to paint the left as ludicrous, and mentally challenged.

She is singlehandedly dragging the democratic party so far left that moderate dems, and independents are horrified, all but ensuring Trump a second term.

My dog knows as much about economics as she does. In fact, I've never heard her speak intelligently on any subject. I don't remember what institution of higher learning she attended, but they must be very proud.

Sure, she can be the boss of the Green Nude Eel.
Great name for a trans/gay bar in Soho.

See that is the problem with these so-called representatives they think they are the boss of we the people. We are part of the problem also..........we let them. It hurts me to say that but it's true. If it wasn't true they wouldn't say stupid sh!t as they do.

That’s why life and work experience matter. It’s a bit bizarre in the age of no discrimination that we have to be careful about criticizing someone’s age and experience. However, historically it was valid to expect leaders to have more experience and for youth to have humility in relation to elders.
