During an NAACP forum last Wednesday, far-left socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez suggested that the entire city of Miami would be gone in a "few years" if we don't implement her radical Green New Deal.
"What is not realistic is not responding to the crisis -- not responding with a solution on the scale of the crisis," Ocasio-Cortez said. "Because what's not realistic is Miami not existing in a few years. That's not realistic. So, we need to be realistic about the problem."

Ocasio-Cortez's 'Green New Deal' is nothing close to realistic. Check out what The Blaze reported:
The freshman Democrat published the Green New Deal in February, resulting in a barrage of criticism and mockery.
Although Ocasio-Cortez purports the proposal mostly focuses on combatting climate change, her now-former chief of staff Saikat Chakrabarti admitted in July the Green New Deal really isn't about the climate.
"The interesting thing about the Green New Deal is it wasn't originally a climate thing at all," Chakrabarti said during a conversation with reporters. "Do you guys think of it as a climate thing? Because we really think of it as a how-do-you-change-the-entire-economy thing."
The Green New Deal would cost American taxpayers nearly $100 trillion.
Ocasio-Cortez is no stranger to making outrageous climate change claims. She previously claimed the world will end in 12 years if climate change is not sufficiently addressed. She later walked back that claim.
Ocasio-Cortez continues to stun the American people with her radical ideas and her bizarre comments.
Just last week onn Tuesday during a House Financial Services Committee hearing, Ocasio-Cortez announced that she "literally" made a student loan payment during the hearing, adding that she felt "really accomplished right now."
"I literally made a student loan payment while I was sitting here at this chair, and I looked at my balance, and it was $20,237.16," Ocasio-Cortez said. "I just made a payment that took me down to $19,000 so I feel really accomplished right now."
The far-left socialist is known for trying to take advantage of the spotlight by making grandstanding comments such as this. Her point in mentioning her own student loan debt was to hammer Republicans for not doing anything about the $1.5 trillion is student loan debt.
"I'm hearing people on this committee say it's not our job," she said. "This is our job."
The complaining by Ocasio-Cortez is odd considering she is making just shy of $200,000 a year, a 550% increase from just two years ago.
Check out what the Daily Wire reported:
Interestingly, Ocasio-Cortez reported a wage of $26,581 in 2017. While her salary has grown more than 550% since she was elected to the United States Congress, the self-proclaimed "radical" congresswoman has apparently still not paid down her student loans.
Ocasio-Cortez has been an outspoken advocate of passing legislation to eliminate student loan debt for the majority of Americans, including her own. While speaking at a press conference to announce college affordability legislation in June, Ocasio-Cortez contended that it is easier for her to do something that was "nearly impossible" than to pay off her debt.
"I have student loans, too," Ocasio-Cortez said back in June. "And I think it's so funny [that] a year ago I was waiting tables in a restaurant and it was literally easier for me to become the youngest woman in American history elected to Congress than it is to pay off my student loan debt."
"So that should tell you everything about the state of this, of this – of our economy and of the state of quality of life for working people," she continued. "Because in order for me to get a chance to have health care, in order for me to get a chance to pay off my student loans, I had to do something that was nearly impossible. And I don’t think that that is the bar through which a person should be able to access education, health care, and a bevy of other things that should be considered human rights."
