WASHINGTON – Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) unleashed a fiery threat of revenge against those who opposed her Green New Deal during a House committee meeting on Tuesday, the same day the landmark environmental proposal failed to advance in the Senate with a stunning 57-0 rejection.
“Be very careful who you mock this day because it will come back to haunt you. I don’t forgive and I don’t forget. This day will live in infamy. My progressive agenda will move forward with or without you,” said Cortez in her blistering response.
The final vote was 57 nays and 43 present.
