Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Pushes for a Green New Deal in Congress

"I think it is very important for the Democrats to press forward with their Green New Deal".

During her appearance on the NPR podcast a couple of days back, Democrat Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez outlined her stance in regards to her monetary policy and how she plans to restructure the social/economic framework of the USA if her freshly proposed "Green New Deal" is passed by the senate.

In the end, Ocasio-Cortez scored in the primaries 58% of the vote, beating his main rival, 56-year-old Democrat Joe Crowley, 16%.
