Another NYC Billboard Trolls Ocasio-Cortez As Democrats Bail On Her Green New Deal

Another giant billboard popped up in New York City Tuesday trolling Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez after Senate Democrats refused to support her Green New Deal.

The Job Creators Network created another billboard in Time Square that appears to ding the New York Democrat’s stalled effort to push an ambitious climate proposal through Congress. The group, which is tied to the conservative Mercer Family Foundation, suggested the GND’s cost might be one of the reasons why it is stalling.

“Hey AOC: Got the Green Raw Deal Blues After that Senate Vote? Maybe No One Liked the $93,000,000,000,000 Price Tag,” the billboard states. The billboard references a February report from American Action Forum suggesting the GND could cost up to $93 trillion over a decade.

“Not a single Senator voted for the Green Raw Deal, maybe because of its $93 trillion price tag,” Alfredo Ortiz, JCN President and CEO, said in a press statement Tuesday. “Nearly every Senate Democrat voted present because they know it’s a disaster but they’re afraid of their base. Thankfully, most Americans support capitalism, reject socialism, and have no interest in becoming the next Venezuela.”

Republicans defeated the GND 57 to 0 as Democratic lawmakers derided the vote as a political gesture meant to rile up conservatives ahead of an election year.

The same group created another billboard in February slamming Ocasio-Cortez for contributing to Amazon’s decision not to establish a campus in New York. The enormous company’s decision will cost the city thousands of jobs and billions of dollars in lost economic activity, the billboard claims.
