A catfight may be brewing…
On Wednesday, Nancy Pelosi hammered her new not so bright colleague Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, openly criticizing Ocasio-Cortez’s pathetic “Green New Deal.”
Pelosi has been reserved about her support for the deal, calling the plan “enthusiastic” when it first debuted earlier in February, and has regularly distanced herself from Ocasio-Cortez — and she hasn’t tabled the Green New Deal for a vote, leaving it effectively dead as an answer to “climate change.”
This week, though, Pelosi unleashed her criticism on Ocasio-Cortez, in an interview with a reporter from Rolling Stone magazine:
“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 Rolling Stone. “They have in there things like single-payer and … what is it? Guaranteed income?”
An aide quickly added, “Guaranteed income, and then a jobs guarantee.”
“And then they have, I don’t know if it’s single-payer or Medicare for All,” Pelosi continued. “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.”
This outrageous Green New Deal contains a universal health care program that would completely destroy healthcare. A universal guaranteed income for those “unwilling” to work, guaranteed jobs for those Americans still deluded enough to seek gainful employment, a healthy food program, and a guaranteed “living wage,” among its promises — and that’s in addition to the plan’s complete restructuring of the American economic system, as well as its promise to replace air travel with high speed rails, eliminate the nation’s entire population of livestock, and reconfigure every last structure in the nation to comply with modern environmental regulations.

Can you feel your blood pressure rising yet?… by the way… The full program would cost an estimated $100 trillion to implement. Yet, paying for a border wall is outrageous. (enter sarcasm).
Pelosi might be crazy, but she knows damn well that this insane GND would be suicide for the Democrat party. Get the popcorn ready. We know AOC will be running her mouth soon.
The left is nothing but a bunch of totalitarian freak shows. How we continue to let them stay in office is quite disturbing.
