Rep’s Ed Markey and Ocasion Cortez green deal is here.
Failure is Not an Option:’ Ed Markey and Caroline Kennedy Talk Environmental Policy at IOP
Thought he had more sense that this. Also Caroline Kennedy is involved in this.
Where did the brain drain come from? You might have known.
As usual, this green deal wasn’t concocted by Ocasio-Cortez but by Robert Hockett – a Cornell public policy and law professor who is her adviser:
How will it get funded?
“The short answer to ‘how we will pay for’ the Green New Deal is easy,” Robert Hockett, a Cornell public policy and law professor and adviser to Ocasio-Cortez, wrote in a piece for Forbes last month. “We’ll pay for it just as we pay for all else: Congress will authorize necessary spending, and Treasury will spend. This is how we do it — always has been, always will be.”
Critics point to estimates of the cost of converting to 100 percent renewable energy reaching into the trillions. So far, Ocasio-Cortez has only floated ideas for how to pay for it — including a fee or tax on carbon emissions and her idea for a marginal tax rate of 70 percent on earnings of more than $10 million for wealthy Americans, a proposal she outlined for CBS’s “60 Minutes” last month.
Why would anyone listen to communists/muslims. All of our relatives of the past came to America to get away from these non-Christian people to form our own union. Then people were hog-washed with the Muslim Obama. Obama brought all of these people into our country to up-end it and Prez Trump is trying to save the country from these people.
Whoever elected these three trouble makers to Congress knew what they were doing – only continuing Obama’s One World Order and wealth distribution. We have to reject these three – because what they are doing is not for the good of America. Why would anyone put so much faith into three people who aren’t even Christians – but Muslims/non-Christians?
Always remember – the Democrats/Obama were trying to take over the government and convert it to Islam.
The Democratic Party is still working for the evil of Obama.

Here below is a section from Cortez’s Green New Deal document. Written by a true Socialist mind, with less sense than a grade school child. To sell it; she sounds like a time-share sales person. It isn’t an expense, it is a “MASSIVE” (HER WORDS) INVESTMENT”; an investment WE would make. Not going to calling funds gobbling a tax……… nope, an investment.
Read below, just a portion of the document. Also, here is the link to the document, which I believe Cortez has since removed from her website. https://assets.documentcloud.org/documents/5729035/Green-New-Deal-FAQ.pdf
“Why do we need a sweeping Green New Deal investment program? Why
can’t we just rely on regulations and taxes and the private sector to invest
alone such as a carbon tax or a ban on fossil fuels?
The level of investment required is massive. Even if every billionaire and
company came together and were willing…
