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

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) is seeking additional co-sponsors for the ambitious Green New Deal legislation, which could be introduced as early as this week.

"It will be one of several or maybe many suggestions that we receive", Pelosi said. "The green dream or whatever they call it, nobody knows what it is, but they're for it right?".

"This new Select Committee will spearhead Democrats' work to develop innovative, effective solutions to prevent and reverse the climate crisis", Pelosi said in a statement, according to Politico.

That's because her plan is a document full of farfetched and unreasonable demands. She couldn't even remember the name.

During Nielsen's heated exchange with Representative Luis Gutierrez (D., Texas), which Ocasio-Cortez referenced, the secretary distinguished between a comprehensive family-separation policy that would apply to all migrants and the zero-tolerance enforcement policy, which applied only to migrants who were being prosecuted for crossing the border illegally. Other initial co-sponsors include Democratic Reps.

And Ocasio-Cortez has suggested the nation's wealthiest may have to pay 70 percent in taxes to fund such an energy overhaul, an unpopular message for many.

The proposals may once have been dismissed out of hand, and Pelosi's comments indicate the proposal will face skepticism from not just Republicans, but also a number of Democrats.

"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.

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

While setting lofty goals, the plan does not explicitly call for eliminating the use of fossil fuels such as oil and natural gas, a nod to pragmatism that may disappoint some of Ocasio-Cortez's strongest supporters.

Progressive activists are "extremely supportive of the Green New Deal and think of it as the gold standard plan on climate, and expect their presidential candidates to be treating it as such", said Chad Bolt, associate policy director of Indivisible, a grassroots resistance group.

Most of the Democratic presidential candidates, including Senators Kirsten Gillibrand of New York; Kamala Harris of California; Elizabeth Warren of MA; and Cory Booker of New Jersey have also broadly endorsed the idea behind the Green New Deal. It was created to examine new climate change policies and does not have the sole objective of focusing on the Green New Deal, another complaint from the supporters of the proposal. Trump, who has expressed doubts about climate change, also is likely to oppose it.
