Readers Write: Ocasio-Cortez hypocritical to use a van

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-Bronx/Queens) is not so green whereas she was seen using a gas-guzzling van near a Queens subway station.

According to the department of energy, this discontinued Chrysler Town and County car gets only 17 mpg in the city.

Added to that, as reported that her campaign shelled out nearly $30,000 on more than 1,050 rides in Ubers, taxis and other for-hire vehicle. The Green Deal seeks to end the need for fossil fuels in 10 years with a cost as high as $93 trillion.

Now if she wants American to go green she should practice what she preaches. And that would be by taking subways, buses, biking, walking and maybe traveling in a smart car.

Ocasio-Cortez is telling Americans to do as I say but not as I do. Well, how about that!
