Saturday on Fox News Channel’s “Justice,” host Jeanine Pirro hammered Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) for her so-called Green New Deal proposal, which Pirro took issue with because of the cost and what it would restrict in the name of environmentalism.
Pirro suggested that Ocasio-Cortez’s response on how to finance it, which was to print more money, meant she should have left her Monopoly game at home.
“Every one of the 2020 Democrat presidential candidates supports the Green Deal proposed by a freshman congresswoman so knowledgeable about Washington that she thinks she came here to sign bills, which Green Deal will literally pull planes out of the sky. No issue, I guess, since the left is happy with the influx coming in through our southern border. No air travel required for them.”
“This Green Deal supported by Booker and Harris and Sanders and Gillibrand and Warren requires that every building in America be rebuilt for environmental reasons and that high-speed rail be developed, so air travel becomes unnecessary. The green deal foresees Medicare for all and considers a deficit not that big a deal because according to Ocasio-Cortez we can just print more money. You know what? You should have left your Monopoly game home when you came to Washington.”
