Moderate Democrat Tom Suozzi Backs Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s Green New Deal.

Tom Suozzi, a moderate Democrat on the important House Economic Committee and representing New York’s 3rd Congressional District on Long Island’s north shore, which is vulnerable to rising sea levels caused by Climate Change, has embraced AOC’s “Green New Deal” which she has proposed to help combat future flooding. Huffington Post   “On Monday the moderate Long Island Democrat told HuffPost he plans to add his name to the nearly 70 House Democrats co-sponsoring the sweeping resolution that Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) and Sen. Ed Markey (D-Mass.) released last Thursday. “Rep. Suozzi supports the Green New Deal,” said Jay Bhargava, Suozzi’s press secretary. Suozzi’s support is notable because he occupies a seat on the influential House Committee on Ways and Means, the oldest congressional decision-making panel, with jurisdiction over taxation, international trade agreements and social insurance programs like Social Security, Medicare and unemployment benefits. The joint resolution stakes out an ambitious agenda for any Green New Deal legislation, calling for eliminating greenhouse gas emissions from every major sector of the economy, providing clean energy jobs to millions of Americans and vastly expanding the social safety net. Suozzi is also the vice chair of the bipartisan Problem Solvers Caucus, meaning he could help woo Republican support for a Green New Deal.”  So far more than 70 House Democrats, approximately a third of the caucus, and a handful of Senators have come out in support of Cortez’s GND, quite a coup for the Freshman Congress woman from Brooklyn. With polls showing 70% of Americans backing legislation to mitigate the effects of global warming, we should expect more to follow. Perhaps Suozzi’s endorsement will open….ahem…the flood gates. …………………………………………………………………………………………………………… This article is exclusive content for PolitiZoom, created by Dino Durrati.
