Marjorie Taylor Greene posted a tweet indicating that Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (AOC) has accepted her challenge as the Green New Deal debate.
“I’m glad I met you today [AOC] to plan our debate on the Green New Deal, ”Greene tweeted along with a picture of the two talking.
The Georgia Republican added, “After reading all 14 pages, as agreed, I’ll allow time for our debate.”
Newsweek reports that the debate has closed, although Greene’s tweet may appear to be pressuring AOC to take up the challenge, implying that they discussed the matter.
AOC has not yet publicly commented on the debate challenge.
I am glad I met you at AOC today to plan our debate on the Green New Deal.
After reading all 14 pages, as we agreed, I will allow time for our debate. # MTGvsAOC pic.twitter.com/viuH5Uj0oD

Last week, Marjorie Taylor Greene gave her colleague AOC (NY) a debate challenge regarding the Democrat’s Green New Deal proposal.
“AOC I’d like to challenge you to a debate on the economic policy of the Green New Deal,” she tweeted.
Greene suggested that a discussion of the benefits of the extremist environmental plan would be of interest to a national audience, and said the couple could even choose their own moderators.
Greene advised getting a business degree and the experience of running a company against Ocasio-Cortez’s degree in economics “to be informative to the American people.”
. @ AOC I would like to challenge you to a debate on the economic policy of the Green New Deal.
Since you sponsored the Green New Deal and have an economics degree, you are sure to be more than qualified.

AOC says racism is causing climate change
While AOC doesn’t talk much about the debate with Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA), it has been busy restarting her Green New Deal for the past few days.
Proving she hasn’t lost a step in promoting insanity to advance her radical environmental agenda, she now blames racism for climate change.
“The climate crisis is a crisis that arose out of injustice, and it is a crisis that arose out of the pursuit of profit at any human and environmental cost,” AOC said on the steps of the Capitol on Tuesday.
“Which means that we must recognize in legislation that trampling on indigenous rights is a cause of climate change, that trampling on racial justice is a cause of climate change.”

Ocasio-Cortez was widely ridiculed for the comments.
“Climate change is racism is indigenous rights is infrastructure – it’s all bad, give me power,” mocked Fox News host Tucker Carlson.
The Green New Deal is no laughing matter, however.
Greene tweeted that the Green New Deal “will destroy the US oil and gas industry soon after we become independent from President Trump [America First] Guidelines. “
“Our ability to export oil and gas gives the US great bargaining power in the world,” she added. “China and Russia love the GND.”
I read your 14-page communist manifesto @AOC.
I look forward to discussing you. #MTGvsAOC

It’s not just China and Russia who love it, but the current government. President Biden also loves the Green New Deal.
Don’t take our word for it, take Senator Ed Markey (D-MA), who openly boasted earlier this week about dictating Biden’s agenda when he reintroduced radical climate legislation.

Newly-elected MP Nancy Mace (R-SC) recently wrote a column claiming President Biden’s recent $ 2 trillion “infrastructure” bill is a barely disguised version of the Green New Deal.
“The plan includes large parts of the socialist ‘Green New Deal’ that is firmly anchored in the minds and on the wish lists of socialists in the House and Senate, even though both Congress and voters oppose the bill,” she wrote.
AOC has been ranked one of the least effective Democrats in Congress, but their Green New Deal has tentacles in almost every Democratic spending proposal.
Can she defend it in a debate against Greene? We would definitely love to see it.
