Ocasio-Cortez adviser admits he falsely claimed Green New Deal didn't promise security for those

'unwilling' to work'

A top adviser to New York Democratic Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has admitted that an official "Green New Deal" document posted by Ocasio-Cortez's office contained a guarantee of economic security even for those "unwilling to work" -- but not before he went viral in progressive circles for claiming the exact opposite, repeatedly, in an interview with Fox News' "Tucker Carlson Tonight."

Cornell University Law School Professor Robert Hockett, who counsels Ocasio-Cortez on environmental initiatives, challenged host Tucker Carlson when he quoted from an outline and list of "frequently asked questions" (FAQ) that had been posted on Ocasio-Cortez's official website. The FAQ was also shared with NPR.

Carlson asked Hockett at the outset of the interview: "Why would we ever pay people who are 'unwilling to work'?"

Hockett did not immediately respond to Fox News' request for comment Sunday, but in an email late Saturday to The Daily Caller, he admitted his error.

Coward writes an email to the daily caller. I notice he didn’t post on his twitter feed

3. Doesn't matter as the MSM is now only giving it cursory coverage

The latest developments with the NGD make the leftist agenda and those who push it look like fools.

Where is the MSM asking AOC the tough questions and following up when she gives her bullshit excuses
