If Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, aka AOC, is the answer, then the question must have been epically stupid. Realizing that she is a new Congresswoman and that she’s a longtime barmaid, we’ll cut her some slack, but not much as she’s a walking, talking moron.
Doesn’t she supposedly have a degree in economics? From where? Moscow University? Pyongyang Reeducation Center? Caracas Community Collete?
We’d ask what is this woman thinking, but the answer to that is obvious, she doesn’t think at all. Her lips just move, aimlessly rambling and ranting about things she knows nothing about.
The “Green New Deal” Ocasio-Cortez introduced to Congress today is a virtual grab-bag of Socialist programs, of which none have ever been successfully implemented at any time anywhere in the world. But just because these policies failed every time they’ve been tried, they’ll work this time.
Her office says that the plan aims to make air travel obsolete, to replace or upgrade every building in the United States and give economic security even to those people that are “unwilling” to work.
“Today is the day that we truly embark on a comprehensive agenda of economic, social and racial justice in the United States of America,” Ocasio-Cortez stated while alongside other lawmakers outside the Capitol. “That’s what this agenda is all about.”
The resolution goes on by saying that they will implement “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.”
The resolution includes proposals such as “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 bizzarely undefined ‘access to nature’.”
The FAQ also sets out that it has set a goal of net-zero, rather than zero, emissions in 10 years “because we aren’t sure that we’ll be able to get rid of farting cows and airplanes that fast.” Seriously, that is
The resolution promises “economic security for all who are unable or unwilling to work.” That’s a mouthful of mush. She’s promising to pay people that refuse to work. So let’s just all quit our jobs and PARTY!!!
But not to worry, AOC has invested hundreds of seconds into creating the “nuts and bolts” of her plan. AOC says that her plan will achieve her goals “…through transparent and inclusive consultation, collaboration, and partnership with frontline and vulnerable communities, labor unions, worker cooperatives, civil society groups, academia, and businesses.”
What kind of Socialist psychobabble is that? And to pay for it she laments that the government prints the money so they can just print more! Problem solved! See how easy that was?
AOC promises to replace airplane travel with high-speed rail to save the environment. Democrat Sen. Mazie Hirono, D-HI, was asked what she thought about the plan to replace jets with high-speed trains, and she was underwhelmed it seemed. “That would be pretty hard for Hawaii” she quipped.
AOC has offered no solutions on how to build the high-speed rail system to Hawaii, just do it she says. Alaska would also be left out in the cold, literally, on this one, unless Canada agreed to let us take control over and defile thousands of miles of their land to put in a boondoggle. That’s a no brainer.
