Kamala Harris and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Release Climate 'Equity' Plan

Now I’m out to mow the lawn.

WASHINGTON — Senator Kamala Harris of California and Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York on Monday will unveil legislation aimed at ensuring that climate change plans benefit low-income communities. The congresswomen described the measure as a key element of the Democrats’ Green New Deal.

The effort comes as Ms. Harris, who is running for president, and other Democratic candidates prepare for a set of debates in Detroit this week. Racial and economic disparities on issues ranging from housing to education are expected to take center stage.

Ms. Harris, who has yet to release a comprehensive climate change plan of her own, has focused much of her economic agenda on providing tax credits and other assistance to low- and middle-income Americans. This month, she and Ms. Ocasio-Cortez introduced a bill designed to help people with criminal records obtain housing.

The new proposal, titled the Climate Equity Act, provides a view of Ms. Harris’s environmental priorities. Under the plan, any environmental regulation or legislation would be rated based on its impact on low-income communities, which are disproportionately affected by climate change because they are often in flood zones, near highways or power plants, or adjacent to polluted lands known as brownfields.

Robert Mueller's 'I take your question' response is turning into a beautiful meme

Former special counsel Robert Mueller is finally testifying before Congress, and boy are some representatives testing his patience.

The first of Mueller's two hearings on Capitol Hill began Wednesday morning. He appeared before House Judiciary Committee and after nearly two hours of testifying Mueller's interaction with Rep. Louis Gohmert really resonated with viewers.

Rep. Gohmert used his five minutes to "go off" as they say, loudly accusing Mueller of perpetuating "injustice" and reminding him of the importance of "credibility. After enduring the exhaustive rant, Mueller simply responded, "I take your question." LOL.

Rep. Gohmert's minutes spent interrogating and accusing Mueller were pretty intense. I mean, look at that face!

People found Mueller's concise and dismissive response pretty amusing, and it even caused a few people in the room to laugh out loud. Naturally, it wasn't long before his words inspired a fun little "let's take a break from this national nightmare" meme.

*pulls up to drive thru*

Wendy's: "What can I get for you today?"

Mueller: "I can't get into that."

Wendy's: "You can't get into what?"

Mueller: "It's in my report."

Wendy's: "What report?"

Mueller: "I take your question."

Wendy's: "Sir, this is a Wendy's."

"I take your question" I assume is Special Counsel for "Fuck you, idiot"
