Watch her here:
2018: The Sunrise Movement "develops" a Green New Deal. Nobody every heard of the Sunrise Movement until new leftist megaphone named Alexandria Ocasio Cortez brought attention to a sit in they did at the foot of Nancy Pelosi's office.
2019: The Sunrise Movement, along with the Justice Democrats and Alexandria Ocasio Cortez jam the "new" Green New Deal onto center stage.

Oh, hello Senegal, Tanzania, and Mozambique. You wanted to talk about a Green New Deal too?
Oh, come on. The 'stans of Central Asia also wanted a Green New Deal?
Well, the results from all the above proposed Green New Deals must have been staggeringly positive- since nobody ever heard of them.

So by all means, try it here in the US. Derp!
This is kind of fun. The scholar who "crafted" the Green New Deal blocked me. She & I must have a fundamentally different understanding of what the term "crafted" means. See the above history.

Although "craft" can mean either make from hand or deceive.
