Senate Humiliates Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Green New Deal Defeated 0-57
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and her Green New Deal Resolution, was voted down by the Senate this week in a 0-57 vote. She got skunked – not a single Democrat would step up to the plate and say it was a good idea. In fact, the lion’s share of Democrats did something even more cowardly. OAC, The Democratic Socialist “sweetheart” wasn’t about to go down without swinging, however…
Get this: Ocasio-Cortez, who co-wrote the Green New Deal resolution with U.S. Sen. Ed Markey, D-Mass., called the effort to bring her plan to a vote a “stunt.”
Fox News reports:
U.S. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., was forced to defend her Green New Deal from accusations of elitism after a Republican colleague in the House trashed the measure as welcomed only by rich liberals in New York and California.
Rep. Sean Duffy, R-Wis., mocked Ocasio-Cortez’s plan to combat climate change during a Financial Services Committee hearing on Monday, introducing an amendment to a homelessness bill that would create “green” standards — and demonstrate what he viewed as the impracticability of the Democrat’s plan.
“The Green New Deal is one that if you are a rich liberal from maybe New York or California it sounds great because you can afford to retrofit your home or build a new home that has zero emissions, that is energy efficient, affordable and safe,” Duffy stated.
“It’s outrageous. It’s absolutely outrageous,” Duffy continued.
