Joe Scarborough on Green New Deal: Stop Growling!
SCARBOROUGH: "Mike Barnicle, you’ve been seeing this for a long time. That’s what freshmen congresswomen and freshmen congressmen are for. That’s what back-benchers are for. That’s how it worked in 1994. You know what, we said abolish four cabinet agencies, we were talking about a balanced budget amendment, we talked about all these things that in retrospect were extreme and were never going to pass. But it redefined the debate so we were able to balance the budget for the first time in a generation and four years in a row for the first time in 100 years. We set the markers down. That’s what these freshmen Democrats and some senators are doing right now. Ed Markey from Massachusetts, a part of it as well. But if you’re running for president of the United States, let them set down the markers. And as frank says, don’t grovel. Talk about the importance of the national green grid, the importance of getting back into the Paris accords and the importance of the carbon tax. Give your own plan, stop growling!"
