AFL-CIO Blasts The Green New Deal, Calling It ‘Not Achievable Or Realistic’

"We will not accept proposals that could cause immediate harm to millions of our members and their families..."

Excerpt:

The AFL-CIO, which is the largest federation of unions in the United States, blasted Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) and Sen. Ed Markey’s (D-MA) Green New Deal, calling it “not achievable or realistic” in a letter sent last week.

“We welcome the call for labor rights and dialogue with labor, but the Green New Deal resolution is far too short on specific solutions that speak to the jobs of our members and the critical sections of our economy,” the AFL-CIO’s energy committee wrote. “We will not accept proposals that could cause immediate harm to millions of our members and their families. We will not stand by and allow threats to our members’ jobs and their families’ standard of living go [sic] unanswered.”

The letter was signed by Cecil Roberts, president of the United Mine Workers of America, and Lonnie Stephenson, president of the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers. It was sent to Ocasio-Cortez and Markey, the lead sponsors of the resolution.

Sen. John Barrasso (R-WY) tweeted the full letter, saying that he agreed with the AFL-CIO’s assessment of the Green New Deal.

Oh don't worry the oldtimers want to get there too, they just want to have their golden parachutes in place and all the arms and ammo the can stockpile for the apocalypse they will unleash with this insanity. They think we are as bad as any virus on this planet.

Good catch.... but a LEFTIST admitting her own hypocrisy?

(I know, you’re just asking a rhetorical question...)

Someone needs to ask the AFL-CIO if they are going do donate to Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Sen. Ed Markey campaigns.
