According to a new Fox News report, Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) attempted to squash socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s “Green New Deal” proposal because she was “anxious about the new congresswoman’s notoriety becoming actual power,” a new book about insider Democrat politics reveals.

Fox News reports:

“In February 2019, Pelosi called [Massachusetts Sen.] Ed Markey the night before he was scheduled to help roll out the Green New Deal. She asked him to hold off. She wanted more substantive policy. The politics weren’t good right then. Don’t give the platform to Ocasio-Cortez, she urged, anxious about the new congresswoman’s notoriety becoming actual power,” Edward-Isaac Dovere writes in “Battle for the Soul: Inside the Democrats’ Campaigns to Defeat Trump.”

However, Markey went against Pelosi’s wishes and the rollout went as planned. The progressives unveiled Green New Deal legislation in February 2019. Pelosi made headlines for downplaying the far-reaching proposal.

“It will be one of several or maybe many suggestions that we receive,” Pelosi told Politico at the time. “The green dream or whatever they call it, nobody knows what it is, but they’re for it right?”

In the 2020 Massachusetts Democrat primary, Pelosi endorsed Markey’s opponent, then-Congressman Joe Kenney, III. Kennedy lost to Markey in the primary after Ocasio-Cortez threw her support behind the incumbent senator.

I basically make about 6,000-8,000 DOLLARS a month online. It’s enough to comfortably replace my old jobs income, especially considering I only work about 10-13 hours a week from home. I was amazed how easy it was after I tried it…..===))>
