Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez just suffered the most humiliating defeat of her life
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez did not know what hit her.
The self-described Democrat socialist thought she was the future of America.
But Ocasio-Cortez just suffered the most humiliating defeat of her life.
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez defined the Democrat Party with her proposed “Green New Deal.”
Every major Democrat running for president endorsed this socialist scheme that would ban hamburgers, airplane travel, and fossil-fuel-powered cars.
One estimate claims it would cost 93 trillion dollars over ten years because it proposes destroying every building in America and rebuilding them to be “sustainable.”
Senate Republicans called the Democrats’ bluff and put the “Green New Deal” up for a vote.
It lost 57-0 as four Democrats voted “no” and the remaining 43 – including presidential candidates Bernie Sanders, Kamala Harris, and Elizabeth Warren who all endorsed this scheme – all voted “present.”
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s pride and joy could not win one single vote.
The Senate voted down on Tuesday S.J. Res. 8, the Green New Deal Resolution, 0-57, with all Republicans, three Democrats, and one Independent voting against it.
Forty-three Democrats voted “present” and three Democrats — Sens. Joe Manchin (D-WV), Kyrsten Sinema (D-AZ), and Doug Jones (D-AL) — voted against the resolution. Sen. Angus King (I-ME) also voted with Republicans against the measure.
Many Democrats — including Sen. Ed Markey (D-MA), who sponsored the resolution in the Senate — called the vote a “sham” because Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) called for it without scheduling any hearings.
Democrats claim fighting “climate change” is popular with the public and an urgent battle.
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez even claimed the planet only had 12 years left unless the government took massive action to combat “climate change.”
But when it came time to go on record, Democrats’ true colors showed.
They know the “Green New Deal” is a political loser, and they didn’t want Donald Trump to ride their vote for socialism in America to victory in 2020.
