Marjorie Taylor Greene posted a tweet hinting that Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (AOC) may have accepted her Green New deal debate challenge.
“I’m glad I ran into you today [AOC] to plan our debate about the Green New Deal,” Greene tweeted along with an image of the two talking.
The Georgia Republican added, “After I finish reading all 14 pages, like we agreed, I’ll schedule time for our debate.”
Newsweek is reporting that the debate is a done deal, though Greene’s tweet seems like it could be an effort to pressure AOC into accepting the challenge by insinuating that they have discussed the matter.
AOC has yet to publicly comment on the debate challenge.
I’m glad I ran into you today @AOC to plan our debate about the Green New Deal.

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

AOC Says Racism Is Causing Climate Change
While AOC isn’t talking much about the debate with Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA), she has been busy in recent days relaunching her Green New Deal.
Proving she hasn’t lost a step when it comes to promoting lunacy to push her radical environmental agenda, she is now blaming racism for climate change.
“The climate crisis is a crisis born of injustice, and it is a crisis born of the pursuit of profit at any and all human and ecological cost,” AOC said on the steps of the Capitol Tuesday.
“Which means that we must recognize in legislation that the trampling of indigenous rights is a cause of climate change, that the trampling of racial justice is a cause of climate change.”

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

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

Newly-elected Rep. Nancy Mace (R-SC) recently penned an op-ed column in which she claims President Biden’s latest $2 trillion “infrastructure” bill is a thinly disguised version of the Green New Deal.
“The plan incorporates large swaths of the socialist ‘Green New Deal,’ which remains firmly planted on the brains and wish lists of socialists in the House and Senate despite both Congress and voters rejecting the bill,” she writes.
AOC has been rated one of the least effective Democrat members of Congress but her Green New Deal has tentacles in nearly every Democrat spending proposal.
Can she defend it in a debate against Greene? We’d certainly like to see it.
