Today, with a great deal of excitement and fawning from the mainstream media, socialist frontrunner Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Sen. Ed Markey laid out the alleged goals of a “Green New Deal” they say is meant to combat ‘climate change.’
However, not everyone within the party is on board the ‘wealth stealing’ scheme, and Nancy Pelosi deliberately mocked it and kept AOC off the select committee formed to address the so-called ‘climate crisis.’
The party rift is widening, no doubt about it.
The supposed ‘New Green Deal’ is designed to tackle “the existential threat posed by climate change by presenting a comprehensive, 10-year plan that is as big as the problem it hopes to solve while creating a new era of shared prosperity.”
But it also includes provisions to eliminate air travel because it would be impossible to control ‘farting cows.’
However, in order to get that ‘shared prosperity,’ Americans will have to redistribute their wealth to the federal government, according to Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.
On Wednesday, a former top staffer admitted “the true objective of the plan isn’t just to achieve a renaissance in clean energy but to essentially steal the wealth of rich Americans and redistribute it, Venezuela-style, throughout the country.”
In what many on the GOP side claim is a “Soviet five-year plan,” to so-called green deal will be funded by American taxpayers.
There’s no provision for the millions of people who depend on low-cost fossil-fuel heat, there is only a sense of superiority and condescension from liberals who created the monstrosity.
“America’s ruling class is freaking out about [Ocasio-Cortez’s] proposal to redistribute wealth and power from the people on top to the people on the bottom,” Waleed Shahid tweeted Tuesday.
The plan “was written over a single December weekend by the staff of the freshman representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and three like-minded progressive groups,” The New Yorker reported in January.
“In addition to pushing for green energy and zero emissions within a decade, the plan also calls for implementing a gaggle of new social welfare programs like free healthcare.”
“In an interview with Politico, Pelosi said that while she is moving forward with plans to create a climate change panel, a suggestion to use it to write legislation for the ‘Green New Deal’ is not in the cards.”
On Thursday, Pelosi released a list of several members named to the select climate committee, and those names did not include Ocasio-Cortez
“The resolution does not include a price tag, but some Republicans predict it would cost in the trillions of dollars. They denounced the plan at House hearings on climate change on Wednesday.”
The scheme would be paid for “the same way we paid for the original New Deal, World War II, the bank bailouts, tax cuts for the rich and decades of war — with public money appropriated by Congress,” Ocasio-Cortez claimed.
