Joe Biden probably regrets running for president, this time around.

There’s a reason he waited for so long before officially declaring.

After getting slammed by Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) over his initial climate change idea, Joe decided to roll out a new plan.

It’ll cost the taxpayer a decent chunk of change.

From Fox News:

Warning that “we must take drastic action now to address the climate disaster facing the nation and our world,” former Vice President Joe Biden on Tuesday unveiled a wide-ranging plan to combat climate change and transform America’s economy.

Using the Green New Deal as a framework, the clear front-runner right now in the race for the 2020 Democratic presidential nomination announced he’s “calling for a Clean Energy Revolution to confront this crisis and do what America does best – solve big problems with big ideas.”

The price tag for the proposal — named ‘The Biden Plan for a Clean Energy Revolution & Environmental Justice’ — is $1.7 trillion over the next 10 years. Biden’s campaign said this would be supplemented by leveraging more than $5 trillion in additional private sector and state and local investments. This is considerably less expensive than the Green New Deal itself, for which cost estimates range as high as $93 trillion.

Someone named Naomi Klein decided to respond to Biden’s original policy:

No Joe, there is no “middle ground” on climate breakdown – there is bold, transformative action or there is sinking ground, burning ground and churning ground. “Presidential hopeful Biden looking for ‘middle ground’ climate policy”

Then, Ocasio-Cortez entered:

This is a dealbreaker.

There is no “middle ground” w/ climate denial & delay.

Blaming “blue collar” Americans as the main opponents to bold climate policy is gas lobbyist 101.

We’re not going to solve the climate crisis w/ this lack of leadership. Our kids’ lives are at stake.

Reactions:

Ocasio-Cortez recently said about the Department of Veterans Affairs, “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.

What’s weird is that everyone seems to agree, for years now, that the VA is wildly broken.

In a surprising twist, President Donald Trump actually agrees with AOC.

Well, he agrees with her in his own way.

LOOK:

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is correct, the VA is not broken, it is doing great. But that is only because of the Trump Administration. We got Veterans Choice & Accountability passed. “President Trump deserves a lot of credit.” Dan Caldwell, Concerned Veterans of America

Thanks, Obama!

High school has to be tough for kids these days. Well, for kids who lean conservative. For liberal kids, life is a breeze. Just slam President Trump and the Republican Party and you’re golden. Check out what recently happened in North Carolina… From Daily Wire: On Monday, cheerleaders from a North Carolina high school were put on probation for the remainder of the football season for posing with a Trump 2020 banner before a football game on August 30. The North Stanly High School cheerleading squad was placed on probation by the #NCHSAA for posing with a #Trump banner before a game. Officials say all #NC schools have a policy against displaying political signs. https://twitter.com/WCCBCharlotte/status/1173982479574851584?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1173982479574851584&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.dailywire.com%2Fnews%2F51878%2Fhigh-school-cheerleaders-put-probation-posing-hank-berrien Here’s the photo: The photo was posted on Facebook, prompting some commenters to take issue; one wrote, “Why in the world would the school board allow this to happen. I am sad and very disappointed with NS. This is a High School football game, not a political rally. Shame on them,” as The Daily Mail noted. NCHSAA Commissioner Que Tucker told McClatchy news group that probation is not punishment, but rather, “It serves as a notice of behavior or action that is against NCHSAA Handbook Policy or contrary to expectations of sportsmanship and proper behavior,” according to the Charlotte Observer. She also said, “One of the rules we have is that every contest should be conducted in a wholesome, athletic environment. We take that to mean that it’s in an environment where good sportsmanship is shown, where people feel safe…that respect for all people participating is being shown,” according to thesnaponline.

MSNBC’s Joy Reid Argues That ‘Wealthy, White Christians’ Will Use Apartheid Tactics to Keep Power

Such a good Democrat, isn’t she?

MSNBC’s Joy Reid is a trip. Then again, she’s simply being a good Democrat. President Trump recently blasted the far-left TV host for being a far-left TV host…and he went IN! LOOK: Who the hell is Joy-Ann Reid? Never met her, she knows ZERO about me, has NO talent, and truly doesn’t have the “it” factor needed for success in showbiz. Had a bad reputation, and now works for the Comcast/NBC losers making up phony stories about me. Low Ratings. Fake News! https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/1172858577951821825?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1172858577951821825&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.washingtonexaminer.com%2Fnews%2Fjoy-reid-claims-wealthy-white-christian-americans-will-implement-apartheid-tactics And here comes Ried with the blabbering nonsense… From Washington Examiner: MSNBC host Joy Reid warned at an event for the American Federation of Teachers union that white Christian Americans will cling to power with tactics that echo South African apartheid. Reid said, “No country is an eternal democracy. Democracy is extremely fragile, and multiracial democracy is so fragile, we’re practically the only one that’s pulled it off. This is a very difficult thing to maintain. And when you have a very determined minority, in this case wealthy white men and wealthy, white Christian men and Christian Americans who are of the fundamentalist variety, who are very clear that no matter what happens, if they have to pull the South Africa model to maintain power forever, they will do it. And they’re not afraid of it, and they’re increasingly open about it, and Donald Trump is merely the avatar for this. He didn’t create it, he simply benefited from it.” She added, “And I think the sooner that the majority, the actual numerical majority in this country figures that out and stop treating these elections as just foregone conclusions that you can fix it with just a simple election and that it will be free and fair, the sooner that we will wake up and actually have…
