Gaetz mocks AOC’s “Green New Deal,” introduces “Green Real Deal”


In an attempt to respond to New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s Green New Deal, Florida Rep. Matt Gaetz (R) has now introduced the “Green Real Deal.”

At a press conference on Capitol Hill, Rep. Matt Gaetz stood behind a podium reading the Green New Deal, but the word new was crossed out and replaced with the world real.

He introduced the Republican response to climate change that would harness the power of free markets, embracing technological innovation and entrepreneurship, and it would also cut excessive government red tape.
