Joe Biden: “I’m working with Bernie and with his people. We’ve made some changes. We’ve listened to the Bernie supporters. For example, we have Congresswoman Ocasio-Cortez, she is on one of our panels as well. I think we have a very united party.”
Progressive Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez will co-chair a panel advising Joe Biden on climate policy as the apparent Democratic nominee takes steps to unify the party, it was announced on Wednesday.
Biden said that Ocasio-Cortez is on one of the six policy panels in comments to Las Vegas CBS affiliate KLAS-TV on Tuesday, when the former vice president was asked what he was doing to bring supporters of Sen. Bernie Sanders into the fold.
In a joint statement announcing participants of the six “Unity Task Forces” released by Biden and Sanders on Wednesday, Ocasio-Cortez is listed as a co-chair of the climate change task force along with Biden endorser, former Secretary of State John Kerry. The former 2004 presidential candidate and senator notably created the Paris Climate Agreement struck between numerous countries under the Obama administration.
Ocasio-Cortez, who had endorsed Bernie Sanders months before he dropped out of the race in April, will be serving as Sanders’ representative on the committee convened by Biden dealing with climate policy, her spokeswoman said.
“She made the decision with members of the Climate Justice community — and she will be fully accountable to them and the larger advocacy community during this process,” spokeswoman Lauren Hitt said in an email. More
Wow Biden is really going downhill. His stuttering has reached epidemic proportions. Hope he’s still taking his medications like the doctor ordered.

He's trying to win over the far left but is running the risk of losing independent voters. The Green New Deal is radical and not a winning proposition with mainstream Americans

They would be thrilled to take 100% of everyone income and divide it how they see fit…
I'm already taxed at 30% as a small business making peanuts…
If one of these loonie libs gets into office & inacts more socialized programs. I might have to close doors due to higher tax.
