Democratic New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez's "Green New Deal" is more about drastically overhauling the American economy than it is about combatting climate change, her top aide admitted.

Ocasio-Cortez's chief of staff, Saikat Chakrabarti, made the revealing admission in a meeting with Democratic Washington Gov. Jay Inslee's climate director in May. A Washington Post reporter accompanied Chakrabarti to the meeting for a magazine profile published Wednesday.

"The interesting thing about the Green New Deal, is it wasn't originally a climate thing at all," Chakrabarti said to Inslee's climate director, Sam Ricketts.

"Do you guys think of it as a climate thing?" Because we really think of it as a how-do-you-change-the-entire-economy thing," Chakrabarti added.
