Conservative Tribune reports that some “Democratic announced and expected 2020 presidential candidates have begun touting the plan, first publicly unveiled last week by freshman Democratic Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.”
Ocasio-Cortez called it an “example to the world.”
.@AOC unveils #GreenNewDeal: “Today is also the day that we choose to assert ourselves as a global leader in transitioning to 100% renewable energy and charting that path… We should do it because we are an example to the world.” https://t.co/2wVPSEx6SK pic.twitter.com/a6AG8TWtPK

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez should be taking initiative and lead the way to act in an environmentally friendly fashion if she’s going to push others to do so.
Conservative Tribune explains, “One of the things the Green New Deal calls for is for air travel to be replaced with the use of rail travel.”
Why is Ocasio-Cortez traveling by air so much then?
“Her campaign filed a report with the FEC. There are 2,293 entries in the report. That may seem overwhelming to review, but filtering can be used in searching. Filtered searches from the time period of Jan. 1, 2017, through Dec. 31, 2018, contained some interesting revelations,” Conservative Tribune reports.
Ocasio-Cortez and the “Green New Deal” want to create a giant train to replace planes.
Conservative Tribune explains that “When it came to using the existing network of Amtrak, AOC’s campaign filed four charges with the company as ‘Fare,’ one as ‘RR Fare,’ four as ‘Tickets’ or ‘Amtrack tickets,’ and one as ‘Travel.’”
The cost ended up being $2,605.07, which is around 10 Amtrak trips.
Her campaign’s air travel was ridiculous.
