The Democrats’ release of the ridiculous “Green New Deal” has backfired, with the Senate voting on the issue to expose just how insane the plan would be. The Daily Caller reports:
The bungled release of the much-touted Green New Deal (GND) could potentially torpedo a great opportunity to completely refashion how Democrats approach climate policy, according to one Obama-era official.
“[The FAQ release] was a monumental screw up. It is putting the potential for a robust climate action at risk,” one anonymous source within the Obama administration told AxiosWednesday morning.
The source noted how a botched document about the GND posted on Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s website on Feb. 7 helped Republicans change the narrative. The resolution, which several potential presidential candidates supported at the time, effectively avoided hiccups, the person said.
“The resolution itself did a great job of avoiding these controversies and finding a way to appeal to a broad spectrum of Democrats,” the person added. “But because the FAQs drove the narrative, McConnell sees it as a way to hurt vulnerable Democrats and embarrass the 2020 field.”
The economy is booming, and this plan would do nothing more than plunge America back to the stone age.
