Joe Biden can’t even line up his own party behind his socialist agenda.
Now some of the highest profile Democrats are openly defying him.
And now Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez said the three words that made Joe Biden’s blood run cold.
RINO Republicans negotiated a $1.2 trillion surrender on a miniature version of the Green New Deal with Democrats in the Senate.
But House Democrats will not move on that bill until the Senate passes a multi-trillion-dollar socialist spending scheme cooked up by Bernie Sanders.
However, red state Democrat Senators Kyrsten Sinema and Joe Manchin balked at the size and scope of the socialist scheme so the plan to create new welfare entitlements and raise taxes by trillions of dollars stalled in the Senate.
Biden desperately begged Democrats in the House to accept the Green New Deal-lite bill on a promise that Senate Democrats would eventually pass the larger socialist spending package.
That was not good enough for socialist New York Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.
Ocasio-Cortez told reporters that the two bills must move together or she will not support the $1.2 trillion down payment on the Green New Deal.
“This bipartisan [infrastructure] bill increases our fossil-fuel emissions. I cannot bring myself to vote to make the United States an even larger emitter and making climate change worse unless, frankly, we can offset those. Unfortunately, those offsets are not in the bipartisan plan, but in a separate piece of legislation. Which is why it’s really important that we pass both of those things together… We’ve had frameworks for six months. And we’ve seen how much those frameworks change, taken back, etc. We need text,” Ocasio-Cortez stated.
Joe Biden announced a visit to the Capitol to sell Democrats on the idea of delinking the two bills based on his promise that Manchin and Sinema would support the larger socialist spending bill at a later date.
That did not sit well with Ocasio-Cortez, who stated that “if nothing changes,” she was opposed to the $1.2 trillion Green New Deal-lite bill.
And since Nancy Pelosi can only afford to lose three votes on this legislation, Ocasio-Cortez voting “no” could lead to other Leftists in the House joining together and sinking the legislation.
