Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) called out Republicans on Twitter Saturday for using a Green New Deal vote as a way to force Democrats to go “on the record” so they can use it to attack them during the 2020 Election.

When Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) agreed to allow a vote on the Green New Deal, it seemed too good to be true. It turns out, it was too good to be true because Republicans have an ulterior motive.

You see, Republicans want to force Democrats to go “on the record” without actually passing the legislation so they can target them using their own voting record against them to accuse them of supporting socialism, a word Republicans and Fox News have been using in an effort to scare Americans against voting for Democrats.

In response, Ocasio-Cortez told Republicans to “learn to govern” and stop using their jobs to campaign and do them instead by passing a much-needed piece of legislation that would help the entire country.

AOC also slammed Republicans and conservative media for supporting an ineffective border wall as a solution for a fake crisis while attacking her Green New Deal as a solution to fight climate change as “unrealistic.”

Once again, Ocasio-Cortez demonstrates that Republicans are hypocrites and that they have no business being lawmakers if all they are going to do is play political games while people suffer.
