Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez went berserk this week after Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden criticized the Green New Deal and her doomsday predictions about climate change.
Last week, it was reported that Biden is working on plans to provide a “middle ground” approach to address the “existential threat” of climate change.
During a rally on Monday hosted by the radical left Sunrise Movement, Ocasio-Cortez wasted little time going after Biden.
“I’ll be damned if the same politicians who refused to act (in past decades) are going to try to come back today and say we need a ‘middle of the road’ approach to save our lives,” Ocasio-Cortez declared.
Ocasio-Cortez’s “middle of the road” comment certainly appears to be aimed directly at Biden over his “middle ground” plan to address on climate change.
“Democratic presidential hopeful Joe Biden is crafting a climate change policy he hopes will appeal to both environmentalists and the blue-collar voters who elected Donald Trump, according to two sources, carving out a middle ground approach that will likely face heavy resistance from green activists,” Reuters reported Friday.
“The backbone of the policy will likely include the United States re-joining the Paris Climate Agreement and preserving U.S. regulations on emissions and vehicle fuel efficiency that Trump has sought to undo, according to one of the sources, [former Obama adviser] Heather Zichal, who is part of a team advising Biden on climate change,” the report added.
To combat what she claims is an existential threat similar to World War II, Ocasio-Cortez has proposed her radical “Green New Deal.”
Ocasio-Cortez has also bizarrely claimed that those who oppose her socialist legislation are similar to those who were against the civil rights movement.
In April, the U.S. Senate voted 0-57 to reject the Green New Deal, meaning not a single senator voted “yes” on it.
Zero senators voted “yea,” with 57 voting “nay” and 43 Democrats voting “present.”
Four Democrats — Sens. Doug Jones of Alabama, Joe Manchin of West Virginia, Kyrsten Sinema of Arizona, and Angus King, I-Maine — joined all 53 Republicans in voting against the socialist measure.
The Green New Deal has also been heavily criticized for how much it will cost taxpayers.
One study found that the price tag for socialist measure would be around $7 trillion.
However, a second study found that the estimated $7 trillion projected cost is painfully low, and that it could actually cost nearly $50 trillion, which would be roughly seven — SEVEN — times more than that.
A third study found that it would actually cost around $93 trillion over the next decade.
All that “free” stuff Ocasio-Cortez keeps promising sure is expensive, and experts argue it will literally end all of civilization if implemented and destroy the country.
