The four legislators support the objectives Omar listed as priorities for thecohort of progressivesshe mentioned in the interview, including the Green New Deal, a ban on fracking and a $ 15 minimum wage. All four have also expressed support for packing the Supreme Court after Justice Amy Coney Barrett’s Monday confirmation.

Biden has not expressed explicit support for the 绿色新政 要么 Medicare for All but has similar climate and health care plans; his website calls the Green New Deal acrucial framework,” and he has said he plans on expanding ObamaCare to make itBidenCare.” His stance on fracking and the oil industry has flip-flopped over the course of his campaign.

It means that we’re trying to do what’s best for people in the country,” she told Just the News.
