Ocasio-Cortez has been calling for the creation of ‘Green New Deal’ legislation, which would eliminate much of the United States’ fossil-fuel consumption. So far, Sens. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., and Cory Booker, D-N.J., and 40 House Democrats have said they support the proposal, but incoming House Democratic leadership has put it on pause for now.

Billionaire Mark Cuban offered some advice to Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) this week, urging the newly anointed congresswoman to avoid the “bad habit” of partisanship when relaying her message to the masses.

“Be a radical. Be different. Be a change leader [sic] innovate,” Cuban wrote on Twitter. “It’s your generation’s turn to govern. Go for it. But please leave our bad habit of using partisan language ‘Us vs Them’ “Rep vs Dem’ ‘Libs vs Cons’ behind. We are all in this together. Change the game to change the world.”

An avowed socialist, Ocasio-Cortez rocketed to political stardom during the 2018 midterm elections after unseating fellow Democrat Joe Crowley en route to the U.S. House of Representatives.

The congresswoman engaged in a war of words with House Minority Whip Steve Scalise (R-LA) last weekend after he criticized her proposal to pay for a “Green New Deal” policy initiative by imposing a 70 percent tax on the rich.

Cuban, who faced criticism for wading into the debate, later attempted to clarify the meaning behind his advice to the freshman congresswoman, noting that career politicians such as House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-AL) are “all the same.”

“My point is that right now Pelosi=McCarthy=Schumer=McConnell=all the same. Now would be a great time for the new generation of politicians, across the board, to take a new approach. We need you to represent us all. The partisan approach doesn’t work,” Cuban wrote.

Cuban, who appears on ABC’s “Shark Tank” and owns the NBA’s Dallas Mavericks, has also mulled the possibility of running for office. He is frequently mentioned as a potential presidential candidate in 2020.

    Cuban, do believe that you stepped in it there, do you NOT realize that she will also be coming after YOU with her 70% tax hike??? Or do you think that you are exempt from that being that you apparently have money to burn??

    I think she could fuel the whole US……hands down……with a mouth that never closes and a brain that never gets any down time to actually think. She’s like the annoying person at a party that is the most loud and obnoxious and goes around telling everyone what they should be drinking, where they shoud be working and what they’re doing wrong in their relationships. After she’s gets down from the table jumping up and down, big ugly mouth open, arms flailing and of course being one of America’s #1 victims. Poor, poor thing. Daddy making all that money and still couldn’t afford dental insurance.

    Cuban will die just like us all and his money will not matter when he does. He can afford to talk and believe the way he does because he is not robbed like the working people. Hope his last breath is far away but would like to be a fly on the wall when he does take it.
