Trump Gets Great News As Key Union Breaks With Dems Over AOC’s Proposal


Things just went from bad to worse for the Democratic party and Nancy Pelosi. Pelosi has the impossible task of holding her fragile coalition together which is not easy with AOC and her gang throwing out radical pie-in-the-sky proposals.

They go over great with the converted and true believers in San Francisco and other coastal cities but land with a thud in middle America.

Look, Trump has his base and the Democrats have theirs and they tend to equal each other out.

To win in 2020 you will need to convince the middle, the swing states, the independent voter. Trump was able to in 2016, but the GOP could not in 2018.

That said, purposefully alienating the very voters who will determine the election in 2020 is a strange, but consistent with past Dem debacles, way to go about securing victory.

From The Washington Examiner:

Trade unions are firing back against the progressive “Green New Deal” agenda and, in doing so, are revealing a split between left-leaning labor and climate advocates in the House and Senate.

The “Green New Deal” is “not achievable or realistic,” read a letter from AFL-CIO energy committee heads Cecil Roberts, president of the United Mine Workers of America, and Lonnie Stephenson, president of the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers.

“We will not accept proposals that could cause immediate harm to millions of our members and their families,” the union bosses wrote.

The letter was sent last week to Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., and Ed Markey, D-Mass., the two leaders of the “Green New Deal” agenda. The letter has been trickling out on social media this week.

The Green New Deal was released by the two Democrats as a broad call to action on climate change, and has since become the policy platform for the progressive wing of the Democratic Party.

It calls for radical action to reduce the threat of climate change by switching out the nation’s entire energy grid to renewables in just 10 years. It offers few particulars and has raised many feasibility questions by both Democrats and Republicans.
