The price tag on Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s latest pet project will make your jaw drop
While the American people enjoyed Christmas with their families, Democrats spent that time plotting the rollout of the biggest government expansion since the New Deal.
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, a rising star in the Democrat party, is leading the effort.
House Democrats are preparing to unveil this nightmare plan to expand government, and the details of the plan will make your jaw drop.
Over 40 House Democrats have pledged their support for the so-called “Green New Deal.”
And more Democrats are following Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s lead.
Some estimates put the price tag for the plan at $5.2 trillion – and that could be just the tip of the iceberg.
The Daily Caller reports:
Democrats are increasingly lining up to support a “Green New Deal,” which, while vague on details, could end up being the largest expansion of government in decades.
As it stands, the “Green New Deal” is more aspirational than actual policy. Indeed, it takes its name from the New Deal of the 1930s, and its main backer, incoming Democratic New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, compared it to the Great Society of the 1960s.
More than 40 Democratic lawmakers support the “Green New Deal” as part of a broad plan to fight global warming and bring about what they see as “economic, social and racial justice.” A poll found most Americans supported the deal, but knew little about it.
The Green New Deal would cost taxpayers trillions of dollars.
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is officially giving Bernie Sanders a run for his money.
The main objective of the Green New Deal would be to pivot our economy to be run on 100% renewable energy.
The Heritage Foundation estimates that moving the U.S. economy to 100% renewable energy would cost over $5.2 trillion over the next two decades.
While the Green New Deal is gaining popularity among Democratic-Socialists, it is yet to be determined if Nancy Pelosi will attempt to ram it through the House.
