“I’m the boss. How about that?”
Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has lately been claiming that anyone who wants to criticize her Green New Deal first needs to come up with their own plan to fix climate change.
However, conservatives have been willfully ignoring the New Yorker’s demand while also mocking her for making it.

“Like I just introduced the Green New Deal two weeks ago, and it’s creating all of this conversation. Why? Because no one else has even tried. Because no one else has even tried,” she said.
“So people are like, ‘Oh it’s unrealistic. Oh it’s vague. Oh it doesn’t address this little minute thing.’ And I’m like, You try. You do it. ‘Cause you’re not. ‘Cause you’re not. So, until you do it, I’m the boss. How about that?”
Conservative Twitter – where the conventional wisdom is that regulating greenhouse gas emissions would be economically damaging and environmentally counterproductive – still weren’t buying the Democratic talking point.
Comedian Tim Young was reminded of the “Cash me outside” girl, aka Danielle Marie Bregoli, whose entitled utterance of that phrase and others on “Dr. Phil” in 2016 catapulted her to infamy. Young spliced the two viral moments together in a video that won right-wing praise, and over 100,000 views.

Meanwhile, Ocasio-Cortez’s self-important rant had Stephen Miller thinking of a famous brat from “Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory.”
“I’m the boss. I’m in charge here!” she yelled as Pelosi blows on her piccolo and summons the Oompa Loompas to drag her away.

The Daily Wire editor-in-chief was one among many who noted that senior House Democrats haven’t exactly embraced Ocasio-Cortez’s Green New Deal proposal, which to him suggests that, much like his 2-year-old son, the congresswoman is “in fact, not the boss.”
Meanwhile, Republicans are reportedly hoping that Ocasio-Cortez really is the boss in her party.
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky is moving to hold a vote on the Green New Deal proposal as early as early as this week. According to Republican Sen. John Barrasso of Wyoming, the goal is to force Democratic presidential candidates to vote for the massive increase in government spending and regulation that the plan would require.
“[It’s important] to get people on record as to how much they really want to take this country in a hard left direction,” Barrasso said earlier this month.
