Rashida Tlaib says that she is not bothered by the fact that Nancy Pelosi does not favor the Green New Deal. She says they are going to do it without her. I think not.
No matter what they say publicly, many Democrats know that the plan is lousy and could affect their reelection in 2020 like Obamacare did in 2010. If the Democrats pass it in the House, a lot of people will be worried about their job security in 2020.
They have another reason to be scared. If all they do for the next two years is investigate Trump and pass really bad legislation, the voters could decide that they want people in Washington to work for them and the Democrats are the wrong choice.
Tlaib became a household name earlier this year when she referred to Trump as a “motherf***er”in front of her younger son and vowed to impeach the president.
But more importantly, there’s no real evidence that Pelosi “supports” the socialist Green New deal, which was sponsored by Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.
In fact, Pelosi can’t even remember the name of the socialist measure.
During a news conference last week, Pelosi suffered brain freezes, repeated words, and struggled remembering the name of the New Green Deal.
The House Speaker said some of the Democrats’ ideas for “climate change” “will be consistent with some of what’s in the— in, uh, the, the Green Deal— New Green Deal?” she said, looking at the reporter for help.
She called it the “Green Deal” several times.
