Joe Biden Responds To Ocasio-Cortez Criticizing His Climate Change Plan

Published reports suggest Biden is seeking "middle ground" on climate.

The discussion was rooted in comments made by AOC which appeared to criticize Biden's centrist approach to what sees (and many agree) as a direly urgent climate change problem that the former Vice President is ill-suited to address.

"We can not accept anything less than a path to save ourselves, which this is", she said.

"It's a long campaign and they should calm down a little bit", Biden said.

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.

On Twitter, Ocasio-Cortez called Biden's proposal a "deal breaker".

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.

Ocasio-Cortez, who rose to national fame previous year after a surprise primary upset of then-Democratic House Caucus Chairman Joe Crowley, hasn't endorsed a 2020 candidate yet.

"We do need to finish this green revolution in a way that is rational, that we can do it, afford it and get it done now", Biden said. Ed Markey (D-Mass.), of Green New Deal legislation which the pair introduced in February.

The Sunrise Movement says it is eager to hear Biden's plans and hopeful that he'll align himself with the national grassroots campaign, presidential candidates including Sens.

Republicans say the plan would devastate the economy and lead to a huge tax increase. 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.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., meanwhile, has rejected calls to schedule a vote on the plan and has given no timetable for when or if it will reach the House floor.

The tension was on display Monday night as a large crowd of liberal activists repeatedly booed references to a report that the former vice president would seek a "middle ground" on what they consider a defining issue among the crowded Democratic field.

Organizers promise a nationwide campaign to make the 2020 election a referendum on the Green New Deal, with a "major demonstration" planned at a Democratic presidential debate in Detroit in July.

Slipping into her thickest Virginia accent, McDowell asked Williams, "Is AOC toxic to a Democrat candidate who really wants to win against Donald Trump because she's proposing essentially sending your gas prices up $5 a gallon, that would be the ultimate result of her Green New Deal", she said, offering no evidence of the claim.
