AOC Says Joe Manchin(D) Will Be A “Big Challenge” In Getting Green New Deal Passed Or Something

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez could not even get one Democrat to vote for the GND resolution when it came up for a vote in the Senate. Almost every single one voted “present”, with a few, like Joe Manchin, voting “nay.” She pitched a fit over the Senate voting on it, even forgetting that it was submitted by co-sponsor Ed Markey, thinking that it was only House legislation. And now

Ocasio-Cortez: Manchin Will Be ‘Huge Challenge’ to Passing Green New Deal

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D., N.Y.) in an interview on Thursday said Sen. Joe Manchin’s (D., W.Va.) role as chairman on the Senate Energy and Commerce Committee will make passing the Green New Deal a “huge challenge.”

Ocasio-Cortez sat down for an interview on Thursday with the liberal “Pod Save America” podcast, where she claimed Manchin will be a roadblock to solving the climate crisis. Jon Favreau, who served as a speechwriter for former president Barack Obama and currently co-hosts the podcast, said solving the climate crisis with the Green New Deal “requires a mass mobilization like we haven’t seen since World War II and it requires it urgently.”

“It requires it at a time when our political system is in crisis because one of our parties has been radicalized,” Favreau said. “Where do we begin to make real progress on this when our best hope is Democratic president, 51 senators, no filibuster, and then you are still dealing with Joe Manchin?”

Sure thing, Sparky

“The reason it has to be so sweeping is because we need to give our entire economy, I think, a golden gate of retreat and decarbonization,” Ocasio-Cortez said. “The Green New Deal I think is in many parts is also an economic stimulus package for main street. We had no problem blinking or snapping our fingers and passing the stimulus package, which created a large of amount of political resentment as well because we bailed out Wall Street and did very little for main street. I think this is the answer for that.”

So, it’s not really about ‘climate change’? Huh.

    Workers at the Shell oil pant were paid to attend the Trump rally
    No attendance, no pay
    Obama never had to do that

    • david7134 says:

      John,
      Fake news. And on Obama, what is your feeling on his massive corruption?

    • formwiz says:

      And your evidence of this is…? A piece from Raw Story without any proof is just somebody’s say-so.

      PS Zippy was afraid of any crowd that wasn’t screened.

    • Kye says:

      First of all John you really need to stop believing shit just because you read it on the internet. Second, every union from SEIU to UAW, And the National Federation of Federal Employees and The AFT (American Federation of Teachers) paid to send their members to every Hussein rally they could, even across state lines. Plus you can throw in ACORN members who were shipped from state to state.

      Obama, the most corrupt president evah!!!

      • Elwood P. Dowd says:

        How do you define corrupt??

        Do you think this is fake news or Deep State perfidy, i.e., protecting Dems and chasing GOPhers?

        Trump ($) – 2.7 years in office, 6 criminal indictments, 6 convictions (or guilty pleas), 5 prison sentences.

        Obama (D) – 8 years in office. zero criminal indictments, zero convictions and zero prison sentences.

        Bush, George W. (R) – 8 years in office. 16 criminal indictments. 16 convictions. 9 prison sentences.

        Clinton (D) – 8 years in office. 2 criminal indictments. One conviction. One prison sentence.

        Bush, George H. W. (R) – 4 years in office. One indictment. One conviction. One prison sentence.

        Reagan (R) – 8 years in office. 26 criminal indictments. 16 convictions. 8 prison sentences.

        Carter (D) – 4 years in office. One indictment. Zero convictions and zero prison sentences.

        Ford (R) – 4 years in office. One indictment and one conviction. One prison sentence.

        Nixon (R) – 6 years in office. 76 criminal indictments. 55 convictions. 15 prison sentences.

        Johnson (D) – 5 years in office. Zero indictments. Zero convictions. Zero prison sentences.

          I define corrupt by using the IRS and NSA to intimidate political rivals and harass “enemies” of the administration. I also define corrupt to mean spending three years chasing a phony Russia hoax in the attempted coup against a legitimate president. Corruption is also when the Deep State colludes and conspires with the media to deprive the people of their chosen elected officials. I call corruption when a major political party threatens to stack the supreme court, eliminate the electoral college and screw with the senate, revert to a popular vote only, spend all their time trying to find SOMETHING to impeach the president for. I could go on but I certainly don’t think listing individuals who were “indicted” by political opponents as corruption unless the very idea that they run to indict opposing party affiliates.

          You like one party rule Elwood, like all communist comrades. I like two party participation because I love Freedom. And when my opposition wins I don’t spend years and millions to try and overturn his win. I try and vote him out next time. I am not consumed 24/7/365 by politics.

          But thank you and your party of crazy for making sure Trump wins again or are you now willing to NAME the DemCom you are voting for who YOU THINK will beat Trump?

          Come on. Name your crazy!

          • Elwood P. Dowd says:

            So you consider President Obama the most corrupt president because you consider him the most corrupt president. Got it.

            I will vote for whomever the Democrats run against whomever the GOP runs (if trump resigns). And I’ll donate to Democrat’s campaign and work for the campaign.

            Do you really believe that trump can be reelected?

            Party of crazy? What about trump? He’s the craziest mofo to ever smell up our White House.

        • Kye says:

          BTW, I also define corrupt as having a painting of the president in a blue dress and red pumps hanging on your wall, using under age girls to entertain your rich Democrat friends and traffic in them.

          But your Messiah Clinton sure looked sweet in that outfit, didn’t he?

    • david7134 says:

      Jeff,
      Now don’t you find that generous for Shell to compensate the employees for attending an event on the grounds? I certainly do, especially seeing that all these men will vote for Trump rather that the liberal nut jobs that are promising to take their jobs and wealth.

      • Elwood P. Dowd says:

        It’s an investment – more good favor from trump and the GOPhers. Why do you think these union members (who had to be paid to listen to trump) will vote for trump?

        • david7134 says:

          Jeff
          The men are smart and have sense, thus they will vote for Trump. Only an idiot would do otherwise, look in the mirror.

    • Kye says:

      And Epstein paid all the little girls to screw his Democrat friends. At least Shell didn’t rape girls.

    Senator Manchin isn’t chairman; he’s the ranking Democrat on the committee. Perhaps the lovely Miss Ocasio-Cortez was imagining that the Democrats would control the Senate following the next elections?

    Mr Manchin represents West Virginia, a coal mining state; of course he’s not going to support something that will put more of his constituents out of work.

    The left seem to think that new technologies will result in millions of new jobs, and perhaps, eventually, they will. But millions of new jobs years and years into the future doesn’t put food on the table today.

    Did you forget that Epstein was good friends with trump?

    No, Epstein was NOT good friends with Trump but he was child molesting with two big Dems Weinstein and Clinton. Hence the picture. He didn’t have any pictures of Trump hanging there, did he. Stop lying to hut other people’s reputations. I wouldn’t be surprised to find an entire book of big shot Dem donors and bundlers who visited Epsteins “Island”. Democraps are just as apt as Republicans to do stupid and perverted things but the thing is we EXPECT it from Democraps. When they do it it’s same old- same old. When Republicans do it it’s a never ending news cycle scandal. Democraps, by nature predatory perverts looking to steal other people’s stuff are expected to be unable to stop their self gratification. Hell, look how they virtue signal at every opportunity.

    I didn’t know you rolled that way. I found the painting bizarre and creepy.

    Are you calling me a faggot now? Just when I thought your name calling couldn’t get any lower you surprise me again.

    • Elwood P. Dowd says:

      I would never, ever call anyone a f*ggot. It’s a slur. And I don’t care about your sexual orientation. But wasn’t it you who called the painting of President Clinton in a dress and heels sweet?

      All you need is evidence against all those you’ve smeared. If they did, they should be locked up, including trump.

      The conservative Daily Caller said trump was a friend of Epstein’s.

      Epstein pleaded the fifth when asked if he had ever socialized with trump in the presence of girls under 18.

      The Daily Caller article was also surprised that the press hadn’t made more of the Epstein-trump relationship.

      But we understand why you wish to change the subject.

  4. formwiz says:

    Well, that restraining order kind of implies that.

    And I’ll bet you call Conservative homosexuals faggots all the time.

    As for the dear departed, Trump threw him out, remember?

    So it’s you trying to change the subject.
