GRAHAM CALLS FOR A VOTE ON THE ‘GREEN NEW DEAL,’ BUT NOT BECAUSE HE SUPPORTS IT

Daily Caller: Sen. Lindsey Graham wants Congress to put the “Green New Deal” resolution to a vote to show Americans “what kind of solutions far-left Democrats are offering to deal with climate change.”


“Let’s vote on the Green New Deal!” Graham, a Republican, tweeted Friday. “Americans deserve to see what kind of solutions far-left Democrats are offering to deal with climate change.”

Graham knows the Green New Deal would never pass Congress. In fact, Democrats aren’t united behind the bill, which moderates fear will alienate key bases of their support, including unions.

Democratic New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez unveiled the Green New Deal bill Thursday, and Massachusetts Sen. Ed Markey introduced a companion bill in the Senate.

The resolution calls for “10-year national mobilizations” to fighting global warming by eliminating all carbon dioxide emissions from all sectors of the economy, including the power industry, agriculture, transportation and every building.


 
The Green New Deal also calls for “repairing historic oppression” among certain groups and putting in place a slew of welfare programs, from universal health care to government jobs guarantees.

“So really the heart of the Green New Deal is about social justice and it’s about allowing and fighting for things like fully funded pensions for coal miners in West Virginia, fighting for clean water in Flint, and fighting for the ability of indigenous peoples to take a leadership role in, in where we’re moving as a country,” Ocasio-Cortez told NPR Thursday.

Democratic 2020 presidential hopefuls cosponsored the resolution, and it’s largely been seen as a litmus test for candidates seeking the Democratic nomination. However, House Democratic leadership panned the bill and Republicans see it as a boon to their re-election prospects.


 

 
“Every Republican in the country should get on their hands and knees and thank Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez,” Andy Surabian, a former White House official, told Axios.


 
Graham’s comments reflect that optimism. Republicans cast the bill as “socialist” because of its unprecedented expansion of government control.

I am truly wondering just how the Congress Critters, like Nancy Pelosi and Ocasio-Cortez are gonna  like "Flintstoning It" back and forth from NY and California to DC??

oh....the green deal is not for them. it's for us.   They are the elites.  NOTHING changes for them except way more room on those planes cause we are not allowed air travel.

NEITHER are we allowed beef because the deal is they want to eliminate the beef industry.  THEY mean to terminate the existence of all cows.   That is the truth.  She has since deleted that info from her information. 

The green new deal will mean destruction for life as WE know it.  Not so much our political and media elites.

The New Green Deal is a stupid as it gets.

Wind energy is a bust and at the end of 2019, the tax credits supporting it at a federal level (PTC) are scheduled to sunset. If the democrats pump more money into that fiasco it will be a national crime.

VIDEO: Students all about Ocasio-Cortez's 'Green New Deal'...then find out what's in it


Wanting to know if the same people who support the New Green Deal would still support it after hearing what was actually in it, Campus Reform's Cabot Phillips headed to the University of Miami to find out.

First, asking their original perception of the plan, students made clear that they were on board.

“I like that it’s progressive, that it’s gonna push the world forward,” one student said, while another added, “just from knowing who’s endorsed it and some other little things, it sounds great.”

One student had a more serious view of the plan, saying, “if we didn’t do that, we’re going to be killing ourselves.”

“I view it favorably,” another said, while one more added, “it’s definitely a great idea.”

However, after walking through the contents of the Green New Deal, their tune quickly shifted.

“It doesn’t sound like something I would be behind,” one student admitted after hearing the details of the plan. Another added, “sometimes you need to take extreme measures to save the environment, but I think this is too extreme."

“I think that’s drastic...” the next student conceded.

Want to see what else they had to say? Watch the full video:

This Green New Deal is so outlandishly unrealistic. This is the "brain-child" of a totally uninformed, self-centered, entitled, and brainless brat. The only reason why she is pushing this stupid idea is because she is getting attention.

Does she even realize that if the airplanes are done away with that she, as all of her other Congress Critters, will also have to comply?? Does she realize that there is something beyond the Pacific, Atlantic, the Canadian border and the Mexican border?? Does she plan to build a bridge to Hawaii?? And then to gut and revamp EVERY building and home in the US?? Who is going to pay for this?? Oh, that's right.....she has stated that The Federal Reserve can just print more money.  ::) ::)

I just can't figure out why everyone is giving this bimbo the time of day for this ridiculous shit!
