Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., and Sen. Ed Markey, D-Mass., are facing growing pushback within their own party over their Green New Deal proposal.
I have read it and I have reread it and I asked Ed Markey … what in the heck is this,” the Democrat said as his hosts erupted in laughter.
Pelosi, the speaker of the House, has downplayed the Green New Deal, calling it the “green dream.”
“I will tell you I certainly agree with the premise that global warming is a threat to the planet and we’re not doing enough,” Durbin said.
"What we're going to do is ask the Republican leader -- what's your position on global warming, while we're at it?” Durbin added.
