Why even waste any time on this stupid idea? But I do realize there are people just as stupid who will fall for this and a lot of them are in our government! Good Lord, please help us!
Other than a catchphrase and some completely unrealistic, pie-in-the-sky goals, does anyone know what “The Green New Deal” is? Or how much it costs? How can she expect the nation to follow a 28-year-old representative with two months experience in office on something so big?
The Green New Deal is so ridiculous and impractical; I am surprised that anyone is taking it seriously. Why is it even being considered? Is the commotion around it a smokescreen to take attention away from the bills allowing infanticide.
I refuse to be subjected to her stupidity. We will not become a socialist country because she says so. Time for her to go. I just suggested that we trade her to Venezuela for the journalists being held there. It would be one hell of a great educational opportunity for Alexandria “the Boss” Ocasio Cortez.
“I think we really need to get to $10 trillion to have a shot,” the progressive firebrand said in response to a question from The Hill in the Capitol.
“I know it’s a ton,” she added. “I don’t think anyone wants to spend that amount of money, it’s not a fun number to say, I’m not excited to say we need to spend $10 trillion on climate, but … it’s just the fact of the scenario.”
Ocasio-Cortez, who helped popularize a set of principles known as the Green New Deal, said that of all the climate plans from the Democratic presidential candidates, she was most supportive of proposals from Gov. Jay Inslee(Wash.), which surpassed $5 trillion, and Sen. Elizabeth Warren (Mass.), which included a $2 trillion green manufacturing element.
She said she was also encouraged that 2020 Democratic front-runner Joe Biden had put out a $5 trillion climate plan, though she criticized the former vice president’s proposal for having less-ambitious goals and timelines than others. [The Hill]
Let’s say this estimate is high somewhat and let’s round it down to $9,000,000,000,000. Given that the government will be running numerous programs/agencies/departments, etc., and given that many of these will be started from the ground up. Does anyone believe that it will ONLY COST nine trillion? Heck No. The total estimated income for the US for fiscal year 2019 is just under $3.5 trillion. You do the math.
Why don’t we start with her district? Take their money to retrofit their apartments and houses and see what their reaction is.
It is irrelevant how much it might cost because it isn’t even possible to do the stupid things she wants. For instance, how would we get rid of all the cars? Life as we know it would come to a screeching halt.
In all of this green new deal malarkey is the elephant in the room. And that elephant is that the physics of renewable energy will not support nor power the grid. Renewable energy only provides megawatts, not megavars, frequency, nor voltage support, and that will cause the grid to collapse. Democrats never understand facts.
The only rational explanation I can come up with for AOC is that she is being used to make sure no Democrats win an election for decades to come.
Republicans couldn’t ask for a better candidate to drum up support for them than AOC.
There have been a lot of popular Republicans over the years, but the party itself has taken an image hit. AOC will have people voting straight R on their ballots.
I commend her for being a regular citizen who had the courage to make a change and get elected, but the problem is, she’s insane, even for standards of the Democratic Cult. She needs to move on to her true calling, a prepper for the apocalypse.
