Green New Deal: Rep. Ocasio-Cortez & Sen. Markey Introduce Landmark Resolution

"Why would we ever pay people who are quote, 'unwilling to work?'" asked Carlson, a co-founder of The Daily Caller News Foundation. "We need to be bold, that's why I co-sponsored the resolution for the Green New Deal", said Booker.

It comes from an official frequently-asked-questions document released by Ocasio-Cortez's office when the Green New Deal was released and was circulated by NPR.

Hockett responded: "Uh.I.we never would, right?" There are no longer any press releases or content on the Green New Deal on her media page-only a release on her swearing in earlier this year.

Read archived versions of the Green New Deal's FAQ page for yourself here and here. And AOC has never said anything like that. "I think you're referring to some sort of document, some sort of doctored document that someone else has been circulating".

"No, no. She's actually tweeted it out to laugh at it".

Hockett then accused Republicans of putting out misinformation about the plan. Some of the discussion, particularly from the right, is derisive and mocking, but Ocasio-Cortez and Markey invited it by stapling a progressive wish list to their much-needed call to action on climate change.

Between clips of Ocasio-Cortez and Markey, Sanders celebrates the effort to enact climate and economic policies that ensure a habitable and healthy world for "our children and our grandchildren" while also creating "millions of good-paying jobs in the United States".

Hockett appeared to refer to an Ocasio-Cortez tweet that debunked a fake screenshot of the Green New Deal proposal that said it required men to urinate into to milk jugs.

Ocasio-Cortez retweeted a researcher at the liberal Media Matters for America who said Hockett debunked "all the conservative media lies" on Fox News. Ocasio-Cortez retweeted Lawrence's tweet to her nearly three million followers, helping the misleading video go viral.
