( - At an event at the New York Hall of Science on Feb. 22, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez described why it was important for her to have introduced her Green New Deal, saying: “I’m the boss.”

“I am at least trying and they’re not,” Ocasio-Cortez said. “So, the power is in the person who’s trying, regardless of the success.

“If you’re trying, you’ve got all the power,” she said. “You’re driving the agenda. You’re doing all this stuff.

“I just introduced Green New Deal two weeks ago and it is creating all of this conversation. Why?” Ocasio-Cortez said. “Because no one else has even tried. Because no one else has even tried. So people are like: Oh, it’s unrealistic. Oh, it’s vague. Oh, it doesn’t address this little minute thing.

“And I am like: You try! You do it! Cause you’re not! Cause you’re not!” she said.

“So until you do it, I am the boss,” said Ocasio-Cortez. “How about that!”
