Rep. Barbara Lee: ‘I Don’t Agree with States’ Rights’ Because Trump Does

Rep. Barbara Lee (D-CA) said on Tuesday that she does not agree with states’ rights because President Donald Trump believes in restoring states’ authority on a wide range of issues, including education and health care insurance markets.

Lee made the remarks at the left-wing Center for American Progress in Washington, DC, where she referenced states rights as it applies to Trump’s decision this month to withdraw the United States from the Paris climate change agreement, a move she claims would hurt the U.S. economy.

Moreover, Lee said, California is still committed to fighting global warming.

“Pulling out of the Paris Accord is also a job killer,” Lee said. “Because the energy sector — the green sector — coming from California we’re doing a lot of things — I think some other states will follow.

“Because the jobs that are being created will be destroyed now as a result of what this president has done,” Lee said.

“I don’t agree with states’ rights because that is kind of this administration’s push but in some instances when we have to just go at it on our own — we need to go at it on our own,” Lee said.

You go for it on your own. It will save the rest of us from paying for your liberal agenda. As for prof. williams, we already know how much other countries are going to do with climate change. ie: China.

Well come on now, she is a moon bat. Cut some slack since these loons do not understand rational ideas and are severely lacking in critical thinking. Mental capacity seems not to be a criteria to be a democrat.
