Despite being fellow New York politicians, Chuck Schumer and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez always had a simmering rivalry.
Ocasio-Cortez has repeatedly hinted that she could challenge Schumer when he runs for re-election in 2022.
But Chuck Schumer drew a red line that froze Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez in her tracks.
Senate Democrats are laying the groundwork to pass a $3.5 trillion big-government spending bill that will grow the socialist welfare state and impose Green New Deal provisions to choke off job growth and wreck the energy industry.
Some socialists in Congress grew worried when Arizona Senator Kyrsten Sinema declared she would not support a $3.5 trillion dollar spending bill.
“I have told Senate leadership and President Biden that I support many of the goals in this proposal to continue creating jobs, growing American competitiveness, and expanding economic opportunities for Arizonans. I have also made clear that while I will support beginning this process, I do not support a bill that costs $3.5 trillion,” Sinema declared.
Ocasio-Cortez quickly attacked Sinema and threatened to band together with her fellow “Squad” members and tank any bill in the House that spent a penny less than $3.5 trillion.
“Good luck tanking your own party’s investment on childcare, climate action, and infrastructure while presuming you’ll survive a 3 vote House margin – especially after choosing to exclude members of color from negotiations and calling that a “bipartisan accomplishment,”” Ocasio-Cortez posted on Twitter in response to Sinema’s statement.
Schumer tried to calm the waters by promising to pass a bill that included the Green New Deal as the heart of the legislation.
“I will not pass an infrastructure package that does not reduce carbon pollution at a scale commensurate with the urgency of the climate crisis we face,” Schumer stated.
“We’re united in taking on the climate crisis as we move forward,” Schumer added. “The Senate will make out largest investments to tackle the climate crisis and environmental justice, ever.”
Democrats have placed so-called “climate change” at the center of their domestic agenda ever since Al Gore’s inaccurate, but apocalyptic, 2006 movie “An Inconvenient Truth.”
All the global warming crowd’s lunatic predictions about the pending doom of so-called “climate change” never came true.
But that hasn’t stopped socialists like Ocasio-Cortez from drafting the framework for the Green New Deal.
Socialists latched onto so-called “climate change” because it acts as a catch-all that allows them to control human life and activities.
The proposals in the Green New Deal – which Biden praised during the 2020 campaign – regulated the cars Americans drove and methods of public transportation, redistributed wealth and jobs by destroying the fossil fuel industry, attacked the meat producing agricultural industry, and would retrofit every building in America to make them “sustainable.”
Some estimates put the cost of the legislation at an eye-popping 93 trillion dollars.
Democrats know they could lose control of congress in 2022.
So this could be their last chance to pass the crown jewel of socialism that will completely gut capitalism and reorder American life based on a bunch of doomsday prophecies that failed to materialize.
But for that to happen, Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi need to keep every Democrat rowing in the same direction.
And that’s why Schumer made sure to publicly declare how this legislation would achieve the goals of the Green New Deal.
