Climate activists rally outside Schumer’s home, demand ‘clean’ budget deal


Hundreds of environmental activists gathered outside Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer’s home in Park Slope on Tuesday evening to protest the pol’s link to fossil fuel donors, and to oppose the inclusion of a controversial natural gas pipeline in the legislature’s hotly-debated budget deal. 

The House of Representatives is expected to vote Wednesday on a bill supported by President Joe Biden and House Speaker Kevin McCarthy, which would suspend the nation’s debt limit through 2025 — avoiding a catastrophic scenario where America would default on its debts, and likely plunge the economy into a massive recession.
