Michigan Rep. Rashida Tlaib is pissed off at Nancy Pelosi because she doesn’t support the ‘Green New Deal’ or the ‘Medicare For All’ disasters that some of the far left support.
Tlaib told Fox 2 Detroit that Pelosi and other senior dem’s lack of support for the Green New Deal and Medicare for All won’t stop the far left freshman members from pushing the bills.
“What’s incredible is even if she’s not jumping up and down for Medicare for all, we’re still proceeding with Medicare for all,” Tlaib said. “Is she endorsing the Green New Deal? No. But that hasn’t stopped us.”
Michael Bastasch at The Daily Caller News Foundation reports that the Green New Deal was introduced by New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Massachusetts Senator Ed Markey in February. The resolution calls for fundamentally transforming the U.S. economy to fight global warming and expand the welfare state.
Republicans derided the Green New Deal as “socialist,” but Democratic leadership also gave the resolution a cold reception. Pelosi called it the “green dream or whatever,” and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer plans on having his caucus vote “present” on the resolution.
“It will be one of several or maybe many suggestions that we receive,” Pelosi told Politico in February. “The green dream or whatever they call it, nobody knows what it is, but they’re for it, right?”
Democrats want to make climate change a top issue in 2020, but there’s disagreement on how to move forward with legislation. Moderate Democrats favor a piecemeal approach while those on the far-left favor Ocasio-Cortez’s sweeping plan.
Republicans see the Green New Deal as an electoral boon that can be tied to vulnerable Democrats in the next election cycle. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell plans on bringing the Green New Deal to a vote by the end of the month, which Democrats oppose.
It should be noted that Tlaib has slammed Israel and Jews, slammed President Trump saying, “We’re gonna go in there and we’re going to impeach that M***********,” and has basically been a pain in the ass in general.
The dems are out of control.
