After a sweeping victory in November, the embolden progressive caucus of House Democrats have a stark warning for their relatively moderate colleagues: Don’t get in the way of creating a “strong” climate committee to pass our “Green New Deal.”

The Daily Caller’s Michael Bastasch reports:
 

“I think it’s in the political self-interest of people like Frank Pallone to be supporting a strong select committee,” said Democratic California Rep. Ro Khanna, Politico reported Thursday.

“If I were looking at the politics and the movement and how strong the movement is, I’d be out there cheerleading for creating a strong committee and saying I look forward to working in partnership with that committee,” Khanna said.

New Jersey Rep. Frank Pallone and other top Democrats oppose creating a House climate change committee, preferring to shepherd any related legislation through the existing committee structure. Global warming wasn’t a top issue in the 2018 elections, but liberal Democrats are pushing for the House to put a major emphasis on the issue in 2019.

Khanna and Democrats supporting the so-called “Green New Deal” want a House climate committee that’s just as strong as others, meaning subpoena power and the authority to introduce bills.

The “Green New Deal” is backed by a vocal group of more than 40 Democratic representatives. The plan calls for a WWII-style mobilization to propel the United States to 100 percent green energy.
