AOC vows revenge over 57-0 Green New Deal rejection

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.

Democrats: Save the planet with bicycle powered generators

WASHINGTON – Congressional Democrats have proposed a ‘Green New Deal’ to address climate change and economic inequality.  The heart of the bill is to create clean renewable energy with bicycle powered generators.

“Americans are too fat.  Those stored calories could be unlocked to create a clean energy source through cycling.  Our plan proposes issuing a bicycle powered generator to every household.  Creating electricity through cycling would help save the planet and also trim our waistlines,” said Democratic spokesperson to Mendaco Press.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell announced that he intends to call up the “Green New Deal ” for a vote in the Senate.
