AOC: The Green New Deal

I hadn't really looked into it until now, and just ended up reading the outline. I'm having a hard time to wrap my hear around the question if AOC actually believes in this BS or... I don't even know what to say at this point anymore.

One of the highlights for me is:
Quote:
Upgrade or replace every building in US for state-of-the-art energy efficiency.
What? How would this be even theoretically, technically feasible?

How will she pay for it?
Quote:
At the end of the day, this is an investment in our economy that should grow our wealth as a nation, so the question isn’t how will we pay for it, but what will we do with our new shared prosperity.
Some of the short-term (5-10 years) goals:
Quote:
Net-zero greenhouse gas emissions through a fair and just transition for all communities and workers, create millions of high-wage jobs and ensure prosperity and economic security for all
This would be hilarious, weren't they actually serious about it.

The full document can be found here:

What the hell?

She is batshit crazy ... but she is also like an Afghan 12. That kind of heat trumps the moonbat drivel she spits out. She is a stuffed-sock away from perfection.

All true - and yet - she is a member of the United States Congress; nearly 50% of the electorate hangs on her every word - waiting with baited breath for the next few notes of music to emanate from her magical pie hole.

Americans are eating this shit up like free chicken. It doesnt matter that "we" all know she is full of shit - she's just so charming and oh-so-much-fun to watch.


If she makes it past her first re-election bid, she will be more dangerous than Hillary Clinton by the time she is 40.

Her mouth is like the Id of the far left pseudointelligentsia.

Ideas that have no real thing behind them expect carefully worded polls to try and base policy on. Will never happen.

She's only dangerous to the Democratic party.

They, including AOC are also trying to slam in a Universal/Medicare for all Health care under the umbrella of a climate change green initiative. It wouldn't surprise me if deep in there is also a gun control ban of some sorts under a mental health care provision of sorts.

This is why nothing ever gets done in congress from the left or the right because these bills that are proposed have all kinds of extra agenda driven crap in them.

If congress proposed bills on single issue platforms more would get done and more common ground things that benefit Americans would be accomplished. That would set the tone for our legislature to actually do their jobs in a faster more effect way but my cynicism will never allow me to believe that happen with our current state of affairs.

It's a strange world, indeed, where Pelosi of all people has to step in and be the voice of common sense and reason to settle down the leftist nutjobs.

That's almost exactly what I was telling my wife this morning: what a weird world when Nancy Pelosi is the most centrist person on that side of the aisle.

Correction to my last comment. I realize this is not a congressional bill but a non binding initiative. Regardless, it shows how much effort they put into getting nothing done except enhancing their camera and media time.

It's political theater. Leftist's have nothing else.

Useful idiot, that's all she is....

Dems are using her as a lightening rod to float all their pie in the sky socialist dreams and calculate their next moves based on the incoming she receives, all the while being able to distance themselves from any negative fallout.....UNLESS the tide turns and they can jump on the bandwagon at a future date.

Yea, because I want to take a 18+ hours to get to Europe instead of 8 - 9.

How would this even work?
