Recently sworn-in Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez continued to tout her ‘Green New Deal’ Monday; bizarrely labeling the stalled legislation a “winning policy” despite failing to secure a single “yes” vote in the United States Senate.
“The #GreenNewDeal, as much as GOP hiss, scream, storytell & cry about it, has forced even the most entrenched Tea Partiers into publicly abandoning their climate denial stance. The reason they’re so focused on discrediting the GND is because it’s a winning policy,” posted Ocasio-Cortez on social media.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell brought her ‘Green New Deal’ to a full Senate vote earlier this year, with every single Democrat voting “present” rather than fully supporting the massive government program.
'WORST MAYOR EVER': Bill De Blasio MOCKED at ‘Green New Deal’ Rally Inside Trump Tower
Big Apple Mayor Bill de Blasio was publicly mocked during a rally inside Trump Tower over the weekend; with countless protesters panning his decision to “ban” future construction of “classic” glass and steel skyscrapers.

“Speaking in front of the same escalators where Trump launched his 2016 campaign, de Blasio blasted the president’s rollback of Obama-era environmental policies, his move to pull the United States out of the Paris Climate Agreement and his appointment of climate change skeptics to the Cabinet,” adds the article.
“His buildings are one of the biggest polluters in New York City,” de Blasio said. “Cut your emissions or we’ll cut something you really care about.”

BETO-MANIA: O’Rourke Says ‘Green New Deal’ Will Require Same ‘Sacrifice’ Made by US During WWII
Failed Texas Senate candidate Beto O’Rourke doubled-down on his support for Rep. Ocasio-Cortez’ ‘Green New Deal’ this week; saying Americans must be prepared to “sacrifice” on the same “scale” as World War II.
O’Rourke was speaking with supporters at the University of Virginia when he called on Congressional Democrats to pass the ‘New Deal,’ saying we all face an “existential challenge” posed by climate change.
“One of the reasons I like Rep. Ocasio-Cortez’s proposed Green New Deal is that it calls to mind another time in this country’s past when we faced an existential challenge,” O’Rourke said. “In that case, it was to our way of life to the western democracies, to our allies in Europe, to our fellow Americans.”
“In the midst of the Great Depression, this country was willing to sacrifice men and women all over the United States to make sure that we defeated Germany, and we won that war and for the following 75 years that we made this world safe for democracy,” O’Rourke added. “The Green New Deal calls that sacrifice and service in scale of commitment when it talks about the challenges that we face today.”
