Ocasio-Cortez Seeks More Co-Sponsors As the Introduction of Green New Deal Legislation Approaches

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) is set to release her much-touted Green New Deal on Thursday - a package of far-reaching, big-government proposals like health care for all, federal job guarantees and a push to eliminate US carbon emissions - but it's already receiving shade from House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.).

"It will be one of several or maybe many suggestions that we receive", she said. 'The green dream or whatever they call it, nobody knows what it is, but they're for it right?' she said, mocking the democratic socialist's effort. The most visible House Democrat on climate change won't get a seat on Nancy Pelosi's select committee addressing the issue. She and Senator Ed Markey (D-MA) will introduce a Green New Deal resolution sometime today, a non-binding bill that provides a "framework" for a public-works undertaking that would dwarf the New Deal and World War II.

The condemnation against Ocasio-Cortez was swift on Thursday as everyday conservatives and right-wing news outlets slammed the freshman lawmaker over the plan.

"Not only will we not agree to fund [ICE], but we are here to say that an agency like ICE, which repeatedly and systematically violates human rights, does not deserve a dime", she continued. As Executive Director Alexandra Rojas explained, "The Green New Deal offers a positive solution to match the scale of our nation's biggest crises - climate change, structural racism, and skyrocketing inequality".

The Tampa Bay Times reports that the following Democrats were selected to the new climate change committee: "Reps".

"We hope that all of the committees of jurisdiction will be very involved", she said.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi says she welcomes "the enthusiasm" of backers of a Green New Deal, but she stopped short of supporting it. The Democrats' plan envisions shifting away from fossil fuels and other sources of emissions that cause global warming within 10 years.

But Ocasio-Cortez didn't seem to mind Pelosi's remarks on her flagship climate change proposal, much less calling it by the wrong name.

The Green New Deal goes far beyond the Clean Power Plan proposed by President Barack Obama.

"The green generation has risen up, and they are saying they want this issue solved", Markey said. Earlier Thursday, progressive lawmakers published an outline of the proposal which they claim is created to solve "climate change" and "systemic injustice" by reducing "pollution and greenhouse gas emissions" to meet "100 percent of the power demand" through "clean, renewable, and zero-emission energy sources".

One critical factor will be the buy-in of President Donald Trump, who pulled the USA out of the Paris climate accord, as is seen by Democrats as the world's most prominent climate-change denier.
