New York Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-Bronx) has proposed a “Green New Deal” that would abolish cattle production, and Nebraska Gov. Pete Ricketts doesn’t think much of it.
“As the Governor of the #BeefState, this announcement is shockingly ignorant,” Ricketts tweeted Friday, after the deal was announced.
“Congresswoman Ocasio-Cortez’s plan to end cattle production would kill our state’s number one industry, and destroy countless middle class jobs and family businesses. I urge congressional leaders to kill this resolution swiftly and decisively to send a message to anti-agriculture socialists that we will fight for our way of life.”
