BOOM! Pelosi Drops the Hammer On Ocasio-Cortez, & This Is Going to Leave A Mark

The following article, BOOM! Pelosi Drops the Hammer On Ocasio-Cortez, & This Is Going to Leave A Mark, was first published on Flag And Cross.

Speaker Nancy Pelosi has already rained on Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s parade when it comes to her “Green New Deal.”

On Monday, she did it again.

AOC may have a large presence on Twitter, but Nancy couldn’t care less.

Here’s why…

“While there are people who have a large number of Twitter followers, what’s important is that we have large numbers of votes on the floor of the House,” ⁦@SpeakerPelosi⁩ told me.

Even CNN took notice:

Reactions:

On Nancy’s opposition to the “Green New Deal”…

From Daily Wire:

Pelosi has been coy about her support for the GND (or lack thereof), calling the plan “enthusiastic” when it first debuted earlier in February, and has regularly distanced herself from Ocasio-Cortez — and she hasn’t tabled the Green New Deal for a vote, leaving it effectively dead as an answer to “climate change.”

This week, though, Pelosi unleashed her characteristic subtle criticism on Ocasio-Cortez and her partner in the Green New Deal, Sen. Ed Markey (D-MA), in an interview with a reporter from “Rolling Stone” magazine, who asked her why she had yet to allow House Democrats to dicuss the plan openly.

“The Green New Deal,” Pelosi said, goes “beyond our charge.” and “is not what we hope to achieve.”

This is not exactly the first time a member of AOC’s own party has told her to stop.

Not even close, actually.

Ocasio-Cortez’s “Green New Deal,” if somehow passed by Congress, was thought to have cost U.S. taxpayers tens of trillions of dollars.

A new report suggests the real number could nearly hit $100 trillion.

That would come to, roughly, $650,000 per American household.

Ocasio-Cortez thinks the 22nd Amendment was put in place to ensure far-left President FDR wasn’t re-elected.

She said that on live TV during a town hall event on MSNBC.

But wait. There’s a problem.

Tom Elliott tweeted:

According to AOC, Congress amended the Constitution to prevent FDR from being re-elected:

“They had to amend the Constitution of the United States to make sure Roosevelt dd not get reelected.”

(Reminder, FDR died in office in 1945; the 22nd Amendment came in 1947)

WATCH:

D’OH!
