US. Rope. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, DN.Y., blasted critics of her signature policy proposal, the Green New Deal, saying they sound "like Dr. Evil," referring to the character of the "Austin Powers" films.

"The FAQ page was quickly drawn after it started circulating online."

"But what we need to do is to have a serious conversation, and even in these draft versions, it's really about the fact that we need to invent our technology, you know? Of course I had an employee, you know, released a document that talked about cow flatulence. "
" That's a problem! "Hayes said and defended the Congress woman. "I just want to say it sounds ridiculous, but it's really a problem."
