He’s the apple of every Democrat’s eye… at least according to the latest polls.
Former Vice President Joe Biden has the clear inside track to snagging the Democratic nomination in 2020.
And Biden is already unveiling some ultra-liberal plans that would cost American taxpayers TRILLIONS of dollars.
But apparently Biden’s latest trillion-dollar takeover isn’t ‘liberal enough’ for some Democrats.
According to a report from Fox News, Biden unveiled a wide-ranging plan to combat climate change and transform America’s economy.
The cost? North of $1.7 TRILLION dollars.
‘The Biden Plan for a Clean Energy Revolution & Environmental Justice’ would cost $1.7 trillion over the next 10 years. Biden’s campaign said this would be supplemented by leveraging more than $5 trillion in additional private sector and state and local investments.
Sounds like a liberal’s dream come true, right? WRONG!
While Biden’s proposed plan is considerably less expensive than the Green New Deal itself, for which cost estimates range as high as $93 trillion, socialist darling Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and others in the Democratic Party are criticizing it.
According to Ocasio-Cortez and her left-leaning pals, Biden’s multi-trillion-dollar plan to address climate change is too ‘middle of the road.’
In other words, Biden’s plan isn’t ‘liberal enough’ to appease the growing factions of uber-liberals in the Democratic Party.
The Green New Deal, co-authored by Ocasio-Cortez, is a sweeping proposal introduced in Congress earlier this year that aims to transform the country’s economy to combat climate change while enacting a host of new welfare programs.
Ocasio-Cortez has been on the warpath against Biden in regards to climate change.
According to the Fox News report, Biden’s past efforts in combating climate change were criticized by Ocasio-Cortez. She tweeted that Biden’s upcoming climate plan “is a dealbreaker. There is no 'middle ground' w/ climate denial & delay.”
A day later, at an event in support of the Green New Deal, she took aim again. Without mentioning the former vice president by name, Ocasio-Cortez highlighted that “if the same politicians who refused to act then are going to try to come back today and say we need to have a ‘middle of the road approach’ to save our lives, that is too much for me.”
Biden responded to Ocasio-Cortez’s accusations by saying, “You never heard me say ‘middle of the road.’ I’ve never been middle-of-the-road on the environment. Tell her.. to look at my record. She’ll find that nobody has been more consistent about taking on the environment and a green revolution than I have.”
Even we can agree with Biden on this one… Ocasio-Cortez needs to BACK OFF!
