REPORT: AOC ally rips Pelosi for ‘ridiculous’ climate change measure in coronavirus bill
As the most reliable and balanced news aggregation service on the internet, DML News App offers the following information published by FOXNEWS.COM:
A Green New Deal co-author panned Speaker Nancy Pelosi for including “tiny” airline emissions standards in the House’s coronavirus response package, arguing now is not the time for token environmental provisions when Americans’ livelihoods are hanging in the balance.
Saikat Chakrabarti, the former chief of staff to Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, called Pelosi’s idea “ridiculous” to include carbon emission language in legislation designed to keep Americans from losing their incomes, homes and businesses during the pandemic.
The article goes on to state the following:
Chakrabarti was reacting to a TV interview where Pelosi defended the airline carbon emission language in the House bill.
“I helped write the #GreenNewDeal and I think this is ridiculous. The tiny little emissions standard increase doesn’t even do anything meaningful to stave off climate change and gives the @GOP leverage to get rid of real help for working people.
“Solve the problem at hand,” he added
