Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) attacked former Vice President Joe Biden for his “middle ground” climate change policy proposal, calling Biden a “conservative” during a rally in Washington, D.C. on Monday to gain support for her Green New Deal.

Reuters reported last week that “Biden is crafting a climate change policy he hopes will appeal to both environmentalists and the blue-collar voters who elected Donald Trump, according to two sources, carving out a middle ground approach that will likely face heavy resistance from green activists.”

“So often when folks particularly conservatives on both sides of the aisle, when they say that calling for a Green New Deal is quote ‘too much or too extreme or too radical,’ no middle ground is right,” Ocasio-Cortez said on Monday to a round of applause from the audience.

“I’ll be damned,” Ocasio-Cortez went on to say according to CNN, “if the same politicians who refused to act (in past decades) are going to try to come back today and say we need a middle of the road approach to save our lives.”

Ocasio-Cortez has previously attacked Biden’s “middle ground” climate change policy proposal on Twitter calling it a dealbreaker.
