Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez launched her “Green New Deal” today and already Americans are shocked by the outlandish policies it includes — paying Americans unwilling to work, building trains to phase out air travel, and getting rid of all known energy sources we currently enjoy. That’s just a few of the resolutions. And Nancy Pelosi is freaking out. Well, Ocasio-Cortez and her Green New Deal just got destroyed. You’ll love this.
A handful of radical Democrats led by Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez rolled out their fantasy to save the world today, called the Green New Deal. It reads like a bad sci-fi novel, and the vast majority of Americans are going to flip out.
Just two weeks ago, the former bartender from New York predicted the world would end in 12 years if we don’t adopt her green policies. “Millennials and people, you know, Gen Z and all these folks that will come after us are looking up and we’re like: ‘The world is gonna end in 12 years if we don’t address climate change and your biggest issue is how are we gonna pay for it?'” Ocasio-Cortez said.
The Democratic Socialist said that the fight against climate change is “our World War II.” Well, with a troubled mindset like that, is it no wonder she is for abolishing all air travel in ten years? The simple truth: if we instituted her green deal we would end civilization as we know it along with crashing the world’s economy.
“An outline of the soon-to-be-unveiled ‘Green New Deal’ says the proposal set a goal of achieving net-zero emissions — rather zero emissions — in the U.S. because it is not possible to eliminate ‘farting cows’ and all airplanes within the next decade,” Breitbart reported.
“The legislation, introduced by Ocasio-Cortez and Sen. Ed. Market (D-MA) aims not only to move the U.S. to 100% renewable energy sources in the next ten years, but also to guarantee ‘a job with a family-sustaining wage, adequate family and medical leave, paid vacations, and retirement security to all people of the United States,’” Breitbart added.
Below are the details of the proposal taken directly from the Green New Deal:
“Upgrade or replace every building in US for state-of-the-art energy efficiency.”
Will end all traditional forms of energy in the next ten years.
The Green New Deal is “a 10-year plan to mobilize every aspect of American society at a scale not seen since World War 2 to achieve net-zero greenhouse gas emissions.”
Plans to eliminate nuclear energy within 10 years if possible.
“It’s unclear if we will be able to decommission every nuclear plant within 10 years, but the plan is to transition off of nuclear and all fossil fuels as soon as possible.”
Build trains to replace air travel!
“Build out highspeed rail at a scale where air travel stops becoming necessary”.
Don’t invest in new technology of Carbon Capture and Storage, just plant trees instead!
“We believe the right way to capture carbon is to plant trees and restore our natural ecosystems. CCUS technology to date has not proven effective.”
Mandates all GND jobs be unionized.
“Ensure that all GND jobs are union jobs that pay prevailing wages and hire local.”
Nancy Pelosi is livid. She understands this will never fly with Americans, even Democrats. She threw shade at AOC, saying: “It will be one of several or maybe many suggestions that we receive. The green dream, or whatever they call it, nobody knows what it is, but they’re for it, right?”
CNN reported, “Pelosi knows exactly what she’s doing here. Her utter dismissiveness of the ‘Green New Deal’ — and, by extension, AOC, who is the member most closely identified with it, is entirely intentional.”
Well, this is just delicious. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is such a whack-job that she is getting destroyed by her own party, by none other the Speaker of the House.
Americans also weighed in on AOC’s disastrous legislation. “I think I physically expelled fits of gaseous laughter at this. My apologies to those standing around me. #GreenNewDeal … this is what we get from a generation raised on handouts, everyone wins and little Susie might get her feelings hurt if we tell her we can’t afford it!” Tweeted John Rodrigue.

“She will bankrupt the US in 12 years. No serious, she should first jack up her accounting skills. To pay for this: 60% overall tax and 100% sales tax (VAT). Good luck on selling that part,” tweeted Johann Jacobs.
In fact, such a scheme would mean that her constituents in New York City would pay a max income tax rate of 82.6 percent, as Americans for Tax Reform was quick to point out.

It’s no exaggeration to say that if implemented, the Green New Deal would upend our way of life and destroy the liberty and prosperity that Americans, of all backgrounds, currently enjoy. When most people are asked if they are for helping our environment and making sure we have clean air, they say yes.
And who would answer that question any other way? But they aren’t told it will make their taxes go up to 70%, and that’s not just for the ultra-rich. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, a 29-year-old former bartender who somehow got elected to Congress, is one of the biggest jokes on America in a long time. As crazy as she is, there are those who aren’t aware of just how delusional she really is. Make sure all your family and friends know. We can’t afford to see America utterly destroyed by these radicalized Democrats.
