Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez has been shaking up Congress on many levels including calling out banks who support fossil fuels, calling out crooked business people making shaded deals, and backing the Green New Deal.
The Republicans have decided to attack the Green New Deal and anyone who is trying to address Climate Change and tagging them as "The Elite Left." You would think that this rhetoric should be ignored as it is the furthest from the truth; however, the rhetoric travels and becomes part of the conversation in these times that can sink any deal including the Green New Deal. AOC is not having it and she decided to meet her critics head-on.
I add a bit of commentary and play AOC's rant in this episode because I think it's important to hear. Not just as people on the right or the left of the political spectrum, but as human beings and realize the lives that can be saved by addressing Climate Change.
