Those of us looking from the outside know there is at least a little civil war going on among House Democrats.
We know that Nancy Pelosi is not as in charge as she likes to be. Radical progressives have battled to take the reins of the party.
And old-schoolers like Pelosi and the moderates are rapidly losing ground.
Now, a new book is revealing even more of the drama within this splintering party. It looks like Pelosi killed AOC’s holy grail, because she didn’t like all the attention the freshman was getting.
From Fox News:
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi tried to sabotage the rollout of Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s Green New Deal in 2019 because she was “anxious about the new congresswoman’s notoriety becoming actual power,” according to a new book about insider Democrat politics obtained by Fox News, although Pelosi’s office is pushing back against the claim.
Wow. Talk about some bad blood.
Back in 2019, the liberal media could say nothing but good about Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. She was newly elected to the House.
And she pushed a radical, insane proposal that would have destroyed our economy and set us into the Dark Ages.
Her “Green New Deal” was panned by conservatives. But, to the surprise of the left, it was also rejected by then-Speaker Nancy Pelosi.
We got little information back then why Pelosi refused to even consider the proposal. But, according to this tell-all, Pelosi was threatened by all the attention AOC was getting.
Hilariously, Pelosi was coveting the power AOC could get. She probably feared that AOC would become the most popular new female Democrat in the House.
Something Nancy hasn’t been in a long time.
Pelosi’s office, of course, is pushing back against the claim. We can’t say for sure if the claim is true.
But it is consistent with what we see from Pelosi. She constantly puts her own notoriety and prestige over what’s good for the country.
She slanders Republicans and refuses to work with them—so she can grab the spotlight.
Why wouldn’t she reject an (understandably bad) proposal from someone that could steal her crown?
- A new book claims Pelosi killed the Green New Deal because she was “anxious” over AOC’s growing popularity.
- Pelosi and the far-left continue to battle for control over the Democratic Party in the House.
- The speaker frequently attacks and criticizes people she fears.
