Marjorie Taylor Greene has been gunning to debate Alexandrai Ocasio-Cortez on the Green New Deal, and said she was glad she ran into AOC on the House floor to talk about it.
Ocasio-Cortez has not confirmed the debate, nor publicly responded to Greene.
In a series of tweets, Greene said a debate over the Green New Deal would be “informative for the American people” and suggested they choose a major news network to host the debate. She has since hinted that pay-per-view TV would allow each of them to split the profits.
“Since you sponsored the Green New Deal and have a degree in Economics, I’m sure you are more than qualified,” Greene wrote.
She added that she, too, has qualifications of her own, tweeting: “I just have a degree in business admin and have owned a construction company for 20 years.”
At a town hall in Georgia, Greene suggested, “Maybe perhaps we live on a ball that rotates around the sun, that flies through the universe, and maybe our climate just changes.”
