In a video released on Wednesday, Alexandria Okashi-Cortez, DN.Y., told the "story of the future" in which her "Green New Deal" transformed the US economy and saved the United States from the terrible threat of climate change.
The reporter's congressman predicted that the Democrats would take the two chambers of Congress and the White House by 2020, introducing the "Decade of the Green New Deal," which spurred "social and environmental transformation to save the planet."
"Many people gave up, they said we were doomed," she said after blaming fossil fuel production companies, such as Exxon, to burden the public with the costs of climate issues. "But some of us remembered that as a nation, before we were in danger – the Great Depression, the Second World War – we knew from our history how to pull together to overcome the powerless chances," she said.
Protected by Okashi-Cortez, the "Green New Deal" is criticized as unreal and too expensive. According to a conservative think tank, the plan could cost more than $ 93 trillion, which is more than four times the national debt of April 15, 2019.
But in the video, published by the Sunrise Movement Climate Movements, Okassio-Cortés described the Green New Deal's legislation as "the kind of ambition to rock the fence we need."
"Finally, we entertained solutions at the level of crises we faced without leaving behind," she said.
Her plan included public works projects, a "federal job guarantee" and "Medicare-on-everything", which she predicted would become "the most popular social program in US history."
Pelosi appeared to take over the new JAB in Ocassio-Cortez, says "glass of water" with "D" can conquer their areas
The ambitious video came at a time when Democrats split divided between Democrats and Progressives such as Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., Who advocates big government programs as healthcare with a single payer.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-California, casts cold water on progressive initiatives – rejecting socialism in a recent interview with the CBS and minimizing Okassio-Cortez and her colleagues as "like five people."
Senate Democrats flooded the Okasio-Cortez climate change proposal last month, when 42 Democrats, along with the described socialist Sanders, voted to measure legislation to deal with. Fifty-seven senators, including 53 Republicans, voted against breaking the strand.

During an interview with MSNBC last month, Okassio-Cortez dismissed spending problems sounding like "Dr. Evil." "They shake this wand and say:" Oh, it will cost a million dollars – as Dr. Evil sounds, "$ 100 million." "
She instead pointed out that the government began with individual initiatives such as full funding of coal miners' pensions in West Virginia. "Let's get started, now!" she cried.
