Calling for a "bigger and bolder" infrastructure and jobs plan from President Biden, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez said the federal dollars in the $2 trillion proposal don't match the "vision" the president has put forward on climate change.
"There are a lot of areas that demand a lot of expansion," the New York Democrat said in an interview after reintroducing the Green New Deal on Tuesday.
"The problem," said Ocasio-Cortez is that while "the aims of this infrastructure bill are great," the "dollars that they put in don't match the vision they have advanced.
"So if they want to actually advance and do what they say they want to do with this bill, they need to actually fund the ability to do it."
Biden's plan seeks to "build, preserve, and retrofit more than two million homes and commercial buildings, modernize our nation's schools and child care facilities, and upgrade veterans' hospitals and federal buildings."
Ocasio-Cortez provided the housing portion of the American Jobs Plan as an example of a provision that doesn't go far enough.
"One area, for example, is on housing," she said. "They've declared a $40 billion investment nationwide for all public housing in the United States; $40 billion dollars is what the New York City Housing Authority needs alone.
"So if they want to actually rectify the fact that people don't have hot water, or the fact that people don't have heat in wintertime, what they actually need to do is use the dollar amount that actually meets that goal, which gets to about anywhere between $70 and $100 billion. And then once they actually pick that number, then they can do the thing that they say they want to do."

Boy, little girl, that’s gonna take a lot of tips to pay off. You are a moron, a disgrace to Congress and a disgrace to the American people.
She found time to say that after her session posing for an artist to picture her looking confidently toward the horizon between Mao and Lenin on a poster.
“The problem,” said Ocasio-Cortez is that while “the aims of this infrastructure bill are great,” the “dollars that they put in don’t match the vision they have advanced.
Little Miss Nitwit thinks those dollars are for infrastructure. Those dollars are to pad the pockets of the politically connected. They’re not to build anything.
Yes, and she is now discovering that her name is not on the list of Gravy Train recipients.
Lemme see if I have this straight: she wants everything to change EXCEPT the climate? Sounds like a 4-year-old: “gimme a pizza; hold the sauce and the toppings!”
The NYCHA houses 500,000 people. So each person get $80k.
There is $1.1 B to fund a project to put more hookers and drug dealers in rural areas. This will greatly reduce CO2 emissions by reducing the miles rural communities will have to travel to get high and laid.
