New Poll Won't Make Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Very Happy

Elizabeth Warren meets with Alexandria Ocasio Cortez in Washington

Urging the United States to "ascend" to the same levels of commitment it did in the face of the Great Depression and World War II, Ocasio-Cortez said that a Green New Deal is necessary today because U.S. political leaders ignored the climate threat for 30 years.

"Real solutions to our energy and environmental challenges should be driven by positive incentives, research and development-not heavy-handed regulation".

Again and again, GOP lawmakers noted that no Democrat supported the motion, even as all 53 Republicans opposed it.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell called it a "radical, top-down, socialist makeover of the entire USA economy", noting it would cost millions of jobs and sharply drive up energy prices.

Republicans, meanwhile, continued to mock the Green New Deal as a step toward socialism and pushed for a House vote similar to the one in the Senate. But some of Hickenlooper's chief complaints about the Green New Deal resolution raise questions about whether he ever read it after all.

Bright side. Sure, her numbers are tanking, but Ocasio-Cortez can take solace in the news that another Twitter-savvy, popular-within-his-party politician is doing quite well. "And that is all the Green New Deal boils down to: lofty goals and aspirations with no concrete plan or concern as to feasibility".

Hickenlooper, a former geologist for the oil and gas industry, has always been criticized for his ties to fossil-fuel interests by Colorado environmental activists, who gave him the nickname "Frackenlooper". But mostly they're ridiculous.

"The authors of this massive-and extremely expensive-plan suggest the Green New Deal can cure all of society's ills within a 10-year time frame".

Trump showdown with Democrats escalates over Russian Federation probe
The Democrats said they want the report "in complete and unredacted form", along with any corresponding evidence. And that's not sitting well with many Democrats, including House Speaker Nancy Pelosi. "No, thank you, Mr.

Hice dared freshman Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., and other Green New Deal supporters to show "political courage" and agree to a recorded vote.

But the recently elected Democratic rep from NY recently gave as good as she got in a passionate rebuttal of Republican criticism. Republicans objected to the Democratic leader's proposal.

"It isn't about energy", Mullin said.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky scheduled Tuesday's vote, saying it would force Democrats to take a stand on a plan that "might sound like a neat idea in places like San Francisco or New York" but would result in communities across the country being "absolutely crushed". He said he was treating it "with the seriousness it deserves".

"Climate change is not a joke", said Sen. Barr extended the invitation across the room, and Ocasio-Cortez happily accepted.

Omar, who is a frequent critic of President Donald Trump, called the image of immigrants at the southern border "abhorrent and inhumane", and then blamed it on "white nationalism".

"I see her on TV a lot but not in the neighborhood", said 55 year-old waitress Barbara Nosel.
