Woah! Even Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi is calling out Alexandria Ocasio Cortez for her radical ‘Green New Deal.’ On Wednesday, Pelosi fired back at Ocasio Cortez saying that her deal is “not what we hope to achieve.”
In previous weeks, the Speaker has been pretty quiet about the Green New Deal and hasn’t showed much support for the plan.
In an interview with Rolling Stone, Pelosi was asked about the Green New Deal. Check out what the Daily Wire reported.
This week, though, Pelosi unleashed her characteristic subtle criticism on Ocasio-Cortez and her partner in the Green New Deal, Sen. Ed Markey (D-MA), in an interview with a reporter from “Rolling Stone” magazine, who asked her why she had yet to allow House Democrats to discuss the plan openly.
Pelosi responded to the reporter by saying, “The Green New Deal,” Pelosi said, goes “beyond our charge.” and “is not what we hope to achieve.”
“Now, in terms of the Green New Deal [as conceived], that goes beyond what our charge is. Our charge is about saving the planet,” Pelosi told RS. “They have in there things like single-payer and … what is it? Guaranteed income?”
Pelosi continued by saying, “And then they have, I don’t know if it’s single-payer or Medicare for All. It’s kind of, like, a broader agenda. All good values, but nonetheless, not what we hope to achieve with this focused, determined, decision-making: You’re either for the planet or you are not. There is no ‘plan B’ for the planet. We have to preserve it, and it is in great jeopardy.”
The Green New Deal presents many radical ideas such as the end to all planes, gas cars and even cow farts. The deal also mentioned that they would guarantee payment for those who were “unwilling to work” which shows how the Green New Deal is just a way for Democrats to implement their socialist agenda.
But all that is abundantly clear to top Democrats. Pelosi’s comments are her nicest way of saying the Green New Deal is an unqualified mess, and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez shouldn’t plan on giving lofty speeches promoting the bill on the House floor anytime soon.
Her comments are only the latest in a series of underhanded insults that she’s lobbed against the up-and-coming progressive Democrat from New York. When Ocasio-Cortez first unveiled the landmark legislation, Pelosi told reporters that, “Frankly, I haven’t seen it, but I do know it’s enthusiastic, and I welcome all the enthusiasm,” instead of endorsing the bill outright, like some 2020 Democratic presidential candidates did.
Nancy Pelosi seems to understand that the Green New Deal is a total scam but is somewhat reluctant to call her far Left colleagues out for the debacle because she doesn’t want to publicly show the divide within the Democratic party.
The ordeal between the Speaker and the far Left Democrats in Congress continues to show the growing divide between the far Left (radical socialists) and the more moderate Democrats in Congress.
