(TheLibertyRevolution.com)- Far-left New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez admitted this week that radical activists have “deeply influenced” the United States government, in an admission bound to terrify Republicans and sane Democrats.
Hailing the reintroduction of her extremist “Green New Deal” legislation, Ocasio-Cortez said during a virtual town hall event how her followers and colleagues in Congress have had a great deal of influence over the Biden administration’s plans for the environment. She added that she is “incredibly excited about the progress we’ve been making” on the climate, and added that the Green New Deal was reintroduced to Congress with a vastly increased number of co-sponsors.
Not only is Ocasio-Cortez having an influence over the United States government…but more Democratic members of Congress are getting on board with her radical plan to spend trillions of dollars completely transforming America’s energy economy.
“We have deeply influenced the way the Democratic leadership and the country have approached the issue of climate,” she said during the event, also pointing to the Biden administration’s plan to cut the nation’s carbon emissions by 50% by 2030.
It’s basically Ocasio-Cortez’s plan…but quicker.
The far-left New York Congresswoman even attempted to portray miners as supportive of her radical plans, explaining how the United Mine Workers union’s offered tentative support for an eventual transition to clean energy – so long as the jobs of those miners are preserved in the transition.
It hardly seems like a win for Ocasio-Cortez when much of the country is supportive of an eventual transition to clean energy. The issue is just ensuring that the workers in the existing energy industry aren’t left without jobs.
“We’re going to work together to make sure those jobs are absolutely being focused in places like coal country so that those families aren’t left to transition with no opportunity,” she added.
Without explaining how she can do that by crashing the U.S. economy.
Not only has Ocasio-Cortez reintroduced the Green New Deal in the hopes that the Democrat-controlled Congress might pass it, she also added that she and her colleagues have introduced a number of other pieces of legislation. These include the Green New Deal for Public Housing, a radical bill co-sponsored with socialist Senator Bernie Sanders that would see widescale retrofitting of public housing with expensive new technology designed to encourage green energy.
Ocasio-Cortez and her “squad” are having more influence on the United States government than anyone thought possible…and with far-left former Senator Kamala Harris in the White House with President Biden, that influence may just keep growing.
