Ocasio-Cortez and Sanders Rally Support for Green New Deal

Biden told reporters Tuesday, "You've never heard me say, "middle of the road, I've been middle of the road" on the environment".

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has been criticizing Joe Biden's climate change record for days, but she's yet to mention the former vice president by name.

"I will be damned if the same politicians who refused to act then are going to try and come back today and say we need a middle-of-the-road approach to save our lives", Ocasio-Cortez said.

"We're not going to solve the climate crisis w/ this lack of leadership", she said.

Biden was less subtle in his response at a campaign stop in New Hampshire on Tuesday.

Fox News' Dagen McDowell expressed her fear that Ocasio-Cortez's Green New Deal would put "millions" of energy industry employees out of work before taking shots at the NY "socialist's" appearance.

Bernie Sanders rallied support for the Green New Deal on Monday night, with the NY congresswoman saying there should be "no middle ground" when it comes to climate change and the Vermont senator calling for a political revolution.

McDowell expressed her fear that Ocasio-Cortez's proposed Green New Deal would put "millions" of energy industry employees out of work and raise gas prices by $5 before offering the NY "socialist" a veiled piece of beauty "advice". Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), who is also seeking the Democratic presidential nomination, and Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.).

Biden's campaign has since pushed back against the report, and he has promised a major speech later this month outlining his environmental priorities.

Democrats slammed the vote as a sham and said their objective was to create a dialogue about climate change ahead of the 2020 election, and not to force parties to decide on a quick vote. Referring to wind and solar power and other renewable energy sources, Markey said, "Give us some of that socialism that the oil and industry has been enjoying for so long". The plan has the support of 72 percent of Democratic according to a Morning Consult poll released in February. AOC co-authored the congressional resolution the Green New Deal which has also been a subject of much ridicule on many conservative opinion programs on Fox News...such as Outnumbered.

The vote carried its own political risk for Republicans by appearing to mock climate change, an issue that a growing number of Americans care deeply about.

But Varshini Prakash, the executive director of the Sunrise Movement, argued in an interview that Biden's strength could fade if Democratic voters believe his climate policies are lacking.
