Pelosi Stops Short of Endorsing Ocasio-Cortez’s ‘Green New Deal’

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio Cortez is the champion of both a Green New Deal and raising taxes on the richest Americans

From left, Democratic Representatives Kathy Castor of Florida, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of NY and Donna Shalala of Florida listen as Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi speaks during a news conference at the U.S. Capitol on January 30.

Democratic Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Democratic Senator Ed Markey on Thursday laid out the goals of a Green New Deal to transform the USA economy to combat climate change while creating thousands of jobs in renewable energy.

Freshman progressives and other Democrats who have come to support the Green New Deal were frustrated when it was previously revealed the committee would lack much of the power that other congressional committees possess.

Ocasio-Cortez, 29, who represents parts of Queens and The Bronx, is calling for the federal government to launch a World War II-like mobilization on a "Green New Deal" environmental plan that would reduce carbon emissions, remake the economy and reduce income equality.

"Americans deserve better than to foot the bill for the Green New Deal's reckless, expensive, and unattainable goals", said Oklahoma Republican Representative Markwayne Mullin.

Obesity-linked cancers on the rise in young adults
We need, as a society, to figure out ways to prevent, much more effectively than we do now, individuals from developing obesity". The rates of new cancer cases and cancer deaths have fallen in the USA over the past few decades.

Progressives had demanded a special climate panel tasked specifically with drafting legislation to end the nation's reliance on fossil fuels in just over a decade and transform the economy.

Later in the morning, Pelosi said she had not seen the proposal.

"It will be one of several or maybe many suggestions that we receive", Speaker Pelosi told Politico on Wednesday. 'The green dream or whatever they call it, nobody knows what it is, but they're for it right?' she said, mocking the democratic socialist's effort.

The ding by Pelosi comes just as Ocasio-Cortez and Sen. Ed Markey of MA are teaming up on the plan, which aims to eliminate the US carbon footprint by 2030. How realistic is this?

The same line is on the FAQ Ocasio-Cortez's staff gave to NPR along with the actual text of the resolution.

Wizards’ John Wall out 12 months after rupturing left Achilles tendon
He appeared in 32 games this year, averaging 20.7 points and 8.7 assists, before going down with a heel injury in late December. Wall has had three knee surgeries with his first dating back to September 2002 when he missed the first 33 games of the season.

"High-quality health care" for all Americans.

Framers of the "Green New Deal" released a framework for their attempt to drastically overhaul the USA economy and energy system, which included guaranteeing economic security for those "unwilling to work".

The rest of the FAQ is nearly as laughable, and not very expertly prepared. "Why? Because we have tried their approach for 40 years". Go to the what? The main goal of the Green New Deal is to remodel the USA economy and achieve net-zero greenhouse gas emissions. It was created to examine new climate change policies and does not have the sole objective of focusing on the Green New Deal, another complaint from the supporters of the proposal.

"It's a socialist manifesto that lays out a laundry list of government giveaways, including guaranteed food, housing, college, & economic security even for those who refuse to work", Republican Senator John Barrasso, chair of the Senate Environment and Public Works committee, said on Twitter. The last thing Pelosi needs is to have Ocasio-Cortez hijack it for her own purposes, or to issue bills that would only produce gales of laughter.
