The weak rollout of the Green New Deal

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez

Ed Markey (D-Mass.) released last Thursday.

Democratic House Speaker Nancy Pelosi did not explicitly endorse the Green New Deal, but welcomed "the enthusiasm" of its backers, AP reported.

Elaborating on her stance, Cortez said that the funding for her latest proposal would have to come from sources that expand beyond the realm of traditional taxation.

Although Dice may have intentionally started and spread this bit of misinformation, it wasn't the only item that sowed confusion regarding the actual contents of the Green New Deal bill. "The so-called Green New Deal is nothing more than a far-left wishlist that will result in higher taxes and less freedom for Americans", Hunter said in a statement.

One of the talking points included language promising economic security for even those "unwilling to work" - something that caught the ears of conservatives who claim entitlement programs stifle work productivity (there's not much evidence to this effect).

Wells Fargo Suffers Second Online, Mobile Banking Outage This Month
It is yet unknown how numerous bank's customers were affected but Twitter complaints have been registered nationwide. The system struggled with nation-wide outages at ATM's and online, which left people frustrated and furious.

Capturing a sentiment often expressed by those who want to see the resolution passed, Organic Consumers Association worldwide director Ronnie Cummins described it as "the only solution that matches the scale of our multiple crises, including global warming, corporate control of our food system, income inequality, and the general decline of our environment and our democracy". The proponents of the deal aim to phase the country off fossil fuels and nuclear energy in 10 years. "I would say it's a favorable act", one student said succinctly.

There are a lot of people who said it wasn't realistic for the United States to get a man on the moon by the end of the 1960s1 when President Kennedy initially outlined that goal but we did it.

May Boeve, 350.org's executive director, called it "a critical opportunity to stand up to fossil fuel billionaires while kickstarting a just transition to renewable energy and creating millions of family-sustaining jobs", and added that "for too long, we've seen legislative action fail to live up to the scale and scope of the climate crisis".

Ocasio-Cortez faced immediate backlash for some of the GND's authoritarian proposals-even from interest groups aligned with the Democratic Party's green agenda, such as the Sierra Club.
