The latest opponent of the Green New Deal: The AFL-CIO
Oh my, look at who is opposing AOC'S Green New Deal.


It's not just conservatives who oppose the Green New Deal championed by Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., and Sen. Ed Markey, D-Mass. Big labor is also lining up against the proposal, rightly skeptical that it will lead to the creation of the mythical and oft-discussed "green jobs" it promises.

The largest federation of labor unions in the U.S. argues that Ocasio-Cortez’s and Markey’s pet project would cause “immediate harm” to “millions” of laborers.

“We welcome the call for labor rights and dialogue with labor, but the Green New Deal resolution is far too short on specific solutions the speak to the jobs our members and the critical sectors of the economy,” the AFL-CIO Energy Committee told the congresswoman and the senator in a letter dated March 8
Hmm, lack of details and the prospective loss of jobs is the same critique leveled by Republicans and other opponents of the Green New Deal. No wonder Democrats oppose any kind of vote in Congress.
