Senate to vote on Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez's Green New Deal

‘Brilliant!’ Trump supports Democrats’ Green Dream to ‘eliminate all planes, cars, cows & military’ Is Ocasio-Cortez’s ‘Green New Deal’ a Good Thing for Bitcoin? Let’s Take a Closer Look…

The Sunrise Movement, a youth organization backing the Green New Deal, plans to launch a multi-state campaign in March to drum up support, featuring stops in Michigan, Kentucky and Pennsylvania.

Republicans have used the Green New Deal to paint the rival party as shifting to the left and embracing extreme policies.

Trump likened the deal - a sweeping House resolution introduced last week by Ocasio-Cortez and Sen.

Lastly, she also added that in order for the Green New Deal to succeed, the Federal Reserve would have to step in and back the giant economic overhaul- primarily by printing new bills which would most likely push the financial body beyond its 2% inflation target.

Fairfax answered: 'I knew that because of what happened to you past year , you'd be too afraid to say anything.' Mr. Sometimes known as the "Cradle of America", Virginia was home to four of the country's first five presidents.

At least six Democrats running for president have backed the proposal.

Republican Senator John Barrasso, chair of the Senate environment committee, said Democrats were proposing a plan that "raises taxes, that overthrows really a productive energy market that we have right now in this country, raises energy costs, forces people out of work who are working in the energy field".

"We will never settle for "just transition" language as a solution to the job losses that will surely come from some of the policies in the resolution", said Yvette Pena O'Sullivan, executive director of the Laborers' International Union of North America (LIUNA), whose members work in construction and other industries.

But reporters and news organizations said the fact sheet had been provided by Ocasio-Cortez's office before the legislation's official release and was not "leaked" to them. President Donald Trump took aim at the resolution at a rally in El Paso, Texas, on Monday, decrying it as "socialism" and painting elements of the proposal as pie-in-the-sky dreaming. Earlier in his speech, he'd suggested the deal would mean "you're not allowed to own cows anymore". Rep. Ayanna Pressley, D-Mass., also spoke at the rally, and said she hopes the White House can "see the humanity" in TPS holders, according to The Hill.
