Moderate Democrats have been desperate to distance themselves from the socialistic, mega-spend tactic of AOC’s ‘Green New Deal.’
But AOC is stepping out and calling a spade a spade. AOC is claiming Biden’s climate bill is basically the same thing as her bill. I’m sure she meant it as a compliment, but that is bad news for Biden if he hopes to garner bipartisan support for a climate effort as AOC’s bill was full of absurd regulations and an unprecedented spend amount.
Referring to Biden’s proposed bill, AOC said: “One of the big goals we had when we introduced the Green New Deal was to show how people thought about climate change from being a billion-dollar problem to a trillion-dollar opportunity. This infrastructure package generally seems to be shaping up in that kind of framework.”
“Biden’s team is planning a $3 trillion ‘infrastructure plan will include at least $400 billion in green spending,'” according to Bloomberg News.
