Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s “Green New Deal” is of such importance to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, she forgot the name of it today.

During an appearance at The Economic Club of Washington, D.C., Pelosi was asked to comment on the legislation that would overhaul the U.S. economic system.

Pelosi began calling it the “Green Dream.”

“What is it?” she asked, looking at the moderator. “Green New Deal,” she said.


When the Green New Deal was introduced, Pelosi ridiculed it, calling it the “Green Dream.”

“It will be one of several or maybe many suggestions that we receive,” Pelosi said in February. “The Green Dream or whatever they call it, nobody knows what it is, but they’re for it right?”
