The proposals known as the Green New Deal were crafted in conjunction with Senator Ed Markey of MA.

Ocasio-Cortez has since disavowed the FAQ, which was posted on her website, and suggested her political enemies disseminated the document to sabotage the proposal.
The vote on the health care legislation didn't quite carry the punch Republicans had hoped. "Unfortunately for Mitch, all he's going to do is show just how out of touch Republican politicians are with the American people".
They were then joined by host Alicia Keys who helped her sing "Papa Was A Rolling Stone". 'You gotta do what's in your heart'. My birthday is in July so this summer I decided I want to do something big for my birthday, since it is a big birthday.
