Greene believes a debate on the economic impact of the policy would be informative for the public, allowing for the American people to hear the two sides along with the pros and cons.

"This is beneath the dignity of a person serving in the Congress of the United States and is a cause for trauma and fear among members, especially on the heels of an insurrection in which the minority in the committee yesterday denied ever happened", Pelosi said.

Speaking to reporters outside the U.S. Capitol Friday, Ocasio-Cortez said that she feels Greene is "deeply unwell" and "clearly needs help".

It is one of a number of times Greene has sought out Ocasio-Cortez. 'Why do you support terrorists and antifa?'

A statement from her spokeswoman Lauren Hitt issued to the Washington Post says, "Representative Greene tried to begin an argument with Congresswoman Ocasio-Cortez and when Rep. Ocasio-Cortez tried to walk away, Congresswoman Greene began screaming and called Rep. Ocasio-Cortez a terrorist sympathizer".

One of the men in Greene's group, Anthony Aguero, was inside the U.S. Capitol on January 6 when supporters of former president Donald Trump stormed the building, according to CNN.

In April she confronted her on the House floor to demand a debate on the Green New Deal after the Democrat claimed climate change was the result of racism. Greene shot cellphone video of the incident. She also said Greene's behavior is being condoned by GOP leadership.

That was the latest in a string of confrontations dating back to Greene's Capitol Hill visit in February 2019.

Greene also faced backlash when she posted an anti-transgender sign outside of her office, directly across the hall from Illinois Rep. Marie Newman, whose daughter is transgender. "MALE & FEMALE. Trust the Science!"

"Her kind of fixation has lasted for several years now", the New York Democrat said.

Rep. Sean Casten, D-Ill., called Greene's poster "sickening, pathetic, unimaginably cruel".

"@AOC "Ms. Defund The Police" wants to call the police for security bc she's afraid of debating with me about her socialist GND".

"Past comments from and endorsed by Marjorie Taylor Greene on school shootings, political violence, and anti-Semitic conspiracy theories do not represent the values or beliefs of the House Republican Conference", he said in a statement released during the debate over her committee assignments. "I made this clear to Marjorie when we met".

"I would think everyone should be asking her why she can't defend her policy. I hold her to her word, as well as her actions going forward".

"One Member has already been forced to relocate her office due to Congresswoman Greene's attacks", a reference to House Democrat Cori Bush, who wrote in a January tweet that she was moving her office because, she alleged, Greene and her staff "berated me in a hallway" and "targeted me & others on social media".

"You need to stop being a baby and stop locking your door, and come out and face the American citizens that you serve", Greene says in the clip, which was saved by CNN's KFile team before it was deleted from Facebook.

"If she chickens out, then she shows who she really is: a scared little girl that is pretty stupid and doesn't know anything about the economy or economics", Greene said.
