The bright shiny new object in the Dem party, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, is an avalanche of socialist stupidity. She utters some of the most idiotic statements , ever, and for someone who has a degree in economics, she doesn’t know squat about the subject.
Her latest air headed wet dream is a litany of big government takeovers of every aspect of American life, and a total gouging of the working taxpayer to accomplish it.
From Fox News
In what may be the most far-reaching proposal to ever be considered in Congress, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., unveiled her “Green New Deal” on Thursday — a government-led overhaul of virtually every aspect of American life that would guarantee a host of taxpayer-covered benefits for all and phase out fossil fuels.
Along the way, her office says the plan would aim to make air travel obsolete, upgrade or replace every building in America to ensure energy efficiency and give economic security even to those “unwilling” to work.
…..The plan, which calls for a massive package of big-government proposals including health care for all, quickly picked up the backing of major 2020 Democratic presidential hopefuls including Sens. Kamala Harris, D-Calif., Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., and Cory Booker, D-N.J. — who all co-sponsored the resolution.
……The resolution says “a new national social, industrial and economic mobilization on a scale not seen since World War II and the New Deal” is an opportunity to tackle systemic injustices toward minority groups, create millions of high-wage jobs and “provide unprecedented levels of prosperity and economic security for all people of the United States.”
Its proposals include “net-zero greenhouse gas emissions through a fair and just transition for all communities and workers;” job creation; infrastructure investment; guarantees of clean water, healthy food and sustainable environment; and a curiously undefined “access to nature.”
……It also promises “economic security for all who are unable or unwilling to work.” What constitutes economic security is not clear, but the plan does call for programs including a federal job guarantee, universal health care and “affordable, safe, and adequate housing.”
Via the Free Beacon:
An overview document released Tuesday by Ocasio-Cortez’s office, which contains numerous typos, laid out what the Green New Deal sets out to do.
Vladimir Lenin would be proud. Besides, we already have a sizable portion of the population unwilling to work. They’re on welfare. The entitlement culture will always expect a hand out, and the Dems will always be there to give it to them. Why work when you can suck off the public teat?
The “Green New Deal” also beats the drum for “a transition off of nuclear and all fossil fuels as soon as possible”, and the manufacture of solar panel factories and wind turbine factories.
Remember when reprobate Obama squandered millions of taxpayer dollars on the failed eco-scams he pushed? Apparently they forgot.
1) By the end of the Green New Deal resolution (and accompanying fact sheet) I was laughing so hard I nearly cried. If a bunch of GOPers plotted to forge a fake Democratic bill showing how bonkers the party is, they could not have done a better job. It is beautiful. #GreenNewDeal

This plan of Ocasio-Cortez will require taxing the evil rich for every last penny she can squeeze out of them. Because any system that allows wealthy people like billionaires to exist, is ‘immoral’.
The New York Times has the same idea, declaring that billionaires should be abolished. Which is pretty damned ironic considering, as Greg Gutfeld points out, “One exception: the Sulzbergers. The Times owners, they were super rich decades ago, and they’ll stay that way decades from now – tricking readers into thinking they care about the poor.”
ObamaCare is an excellent example of the DemProg’s enforcement of socialism, and a lesson in epic fail.
Liberal socialist experiments on populations in places like Seattle and San Francisco have proven to be disastrous. They’re riddled with poverty, homelessness, disease, illegal aliens, and deterioration. In other words, they’re on their way to being Venezuela.
