As Americans listen to Democrats calling for an end to meat, the elimination of airline travel, the eradication of fossil fuels, cars, trucks, and electricity as we know it, and the revamping of every building in the United States. Now Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is also calling on Americans to stop having children. In fact, she posted a video on her Instagram account on Sunday night where she actually questioned the ‘morality’ of having children! Ocasio-Cortez said…
“Our planet is going to hit disaster if we don’t turn this ship around and so it’s basically like, there’s a scientific consensus that the lives of children are going to be very difficult. And it does lead, I think, young people, to have a legitimate question, you know, ‘Is it okay to still have children? The lack of urgency is going to kill.”
Therefore, in just a few short months, Ocasio-Cortez has laid out a blueprint to bankrupt America, to turn the United States into a Socialist economy with a Marxist State, told the American voters that she is the boss, not the American voters, called for ending meat consumption, demanded an end to fossil fuels in ten years, demanded EVERY BUILDING IN AMERICA BE REBUILT OR REVAMPED TO BE ENERGY EFFICIENT, called for the elimination of American children, and has gotten the entire Democrat Party to embrace her radical hate-driven agenda! HER PRICE TAG…JUST A MERE $94 Trillion dollars!
In fact, it was revealed in a study from the American Action Forum found that her Green New Deal would cost over $600,000 per household or $94 Trillion over a ten year period, and they said THAT WAS A CONSERVATIVE ESTIMATE!
They were not even able to price much of the plan, because of its vagueness, but the study focused on the proposals that were more straightforward, such as…
- A 10-year transition to an exclusively low-carbon energy electricity grid;
- Enough high-speed rail transit available that air travel becomes unnecessary;
- Guaranteeing union jobs with a family-sustaining wage, adequate family and medical leave, paid vacations, and retirement security to all people of the United States;
- Universal health care;
- Guaranteed housing for every American; and
- Food security for every person in the United States.
The Free Beacon reported that the American Action Forum calculated it based on…
- guaranteed green housing would cost between $1.6 trillion and $4.2 trillion
- a federal jobs guarantee between $6.8 trillion and $44.6 trillion
- net zero emissions transportation system between $1.3 trillion and $2.7 trillion
- a low-carbon electricity grid for $5.4 trillion; and “food security” for $1.5 billion.
Furthermore, Americans would no longer be able to afford energy, as electric bills were estimated to increase by at least $3,800 per year, and the tax burden per household would increase to an average of $360,000 to $653,000 over a ten year period.
Sen. John Barrasso (R., Wyo.), chairman of the Senate Committee on Environment and Public Works, told the Free Beacon that…
“The American Action Forum’s analysis shows that the Green New Deal would bankrupt the nation. On the upper end, every American household would have to pay $65,000 per year to foot the bill. The total price tag would be $93 trillion over 10 years. That is roughly four times the value of all Fortune 500 companies combined. That’s no deal.”
In the end, Barrasso is correct, in that the Green New Deal, is a ‘New Green Marxist Catastrophe’! In fact, it would not only be one of the most dangerous, careless, and catastrophic pieces of legislation in United States history, but it would spell doom for our great nation!
