Ocasio-Cortez Comes Unhinged After Her Deal Gets Demolished In The Senate
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez's Green New Deal just got shut down HARD in the Senate without a single bit of support for it.
Now she's ticked and is throwing blame at everyone and basically telling us we're all going to regret it.
According to Yahoo News,
Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) unleashed an impassioned defense of her Green New Deal during a House committee meeting on Tuesday, the same day the landmark environmental proposal failed to advance in the Senate.
During a meeting of the House Committee on Financial Services, Ocasio-Cortez used her time to address Republican critiques of the proposal, a set of ambitious policy recommendations meant to tackle climate change and rein in greenhouse gas emissions. Republicans have lambasted the Green New Deal as untenable, but forced the Senate to vote on the measure without a hearing in an attempt to get Democrats to go “on the record” about their support.
At 0-57, the nonbinding measure fell short of the necessary 60-vote threshold needed. No senators voted in support of it. Four members of the Democratic caucus voted against it. And most Democrats simply voted “present.”
“We’re going to pay for this whether we pass a Green New Deal or not. We need to decide whether we’re going to pay to react or we’re going to pay to be proactive. I’m very sad to say that the government knew that climate change was real starting as far back as 1989. I’m going to turn 30 this year, and for the entire 30 years of my lifetime, we did not make substantial investments to prepare our entire country for what we knew was coming.”
"We talk about cost—we’re going to pay for this whether we pass a Green New Deal or not. Because as towns and cities go underwater, as wildfires ravage our communities, we’re going to pay. And we have to decide whether we’re going to pay to react, or pay to be proactive."

Ocasio-Cortez has even threatened the moderate Democrats in Congress with mob action if they don't get behind her and follow her into the battlefield. She's trying to take over Washington, but she has no idea what she's doing. If anything, she's just going to get herself voted out very quickly.
