Ocasio-Cortez Lets It All Hang Out: The Green New Death'

The Green New Deal is a 10-year climate change initiative, sponsored by Democratic Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of NY and Sen.

More than 100 young climate activists rallied in front of Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell's office on Monday over his opposition to the Green New Deal, resulting in nearly 50 young people being arrested on Capitol Hill, according to CNN.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi will not commit to holding a vote on the Green New Deal touted by progressive lawmakers, saying Congress needs something that is "evidence-based". "He's the one who brought it up", Durbin said.

There are no specifics provided in the whole overview and FAQ of this Green New Deal, and that is what is confusing the media and population in general. The non-binding resolution calls for a World War II-style mobilization to achieve "net-zero" greenhouse gas emissions within 10 years.

The proposal, which Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has announced the Senate will vote on, does not suggest any revenue-raising measures, but rather relies on credit, extended by "public banks", to finance its reforms. "And we're going to be voting on that in the Senate".

President Donald Trump's daughter Ivanka Trump, who is a White House adviser, criticized the Green New Deal in an interview with Fox News earlier this week, claiming Americans did not like handouts, such as a guaranteed job or income.

The crash happened in the morning when the platform was crowded with people, the eyewitness said. In the meantime, Egypt's Transport Minister, Hisham Arafat, has resigned following the accident.

Hostin also pressed Sanders on Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez's recent suggestion that couples are rightfully hesitant to have children because of the threat of climate change. On numerous points that the Democrats have presented, the Republicans-most notably President Trump-have exaggerated them so that it is muddy at best.

Her statements came following Senator Dianne Feinstein's (D-CA) response when questioned about the Green New Deal.

"No. You can not go too far on the issue of climate change".

"I've been doing this for 30 years", Feinstein told the group. Their hope was to sway Feinstein's vote in favor of the proposal.

House Budget Chairman John Yarmuth (D-Ky.) said yesterday the upcoming fiscal 2020 budget resolution won't include a call for a "Green New Deal", an issue that could doom the spending blueprint on the floor.

Morano chastised Green New Deal supporters for wanting to engage on a bill they say is necessary to avert catastrophic global warming. A polite legislative campaign for the Green New Deal isn't going to cut it - these people are literally making money from killing the planet and dooming humankind. "It's a diversion. It's a sham", Schumer said.
