    Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Releases Green New Deal Outline


    If she just gets some of this passed and conventional thinking says she just might pull it off. She'll be on equal playing field with the President of the United States in terms of legislative deals. Trump's comprehensive tax reform plan is the only thing even remotely comparable to this that he's done or thought of.
    Gosh. That's odd. She didn't mention the need to cut the military in half, and confiscate privately-owned gasoline automobiles. Wonder why she left that section out.

    Promising free stuff usually doesn't go over too badly in an election. Also, the left is pretty sure they have an easy win in 2020, so they are going with the further left candidates. They better hope they don't end up going too far putting up someone as crazy as Clinton or it will be another close fight, no matter how many independents Trump offends.

    That's what the politicians want you to think. The affect of energy on the environment is not what is gonna take down this world.

    Didn't you read the whole thing? Everyone is going to have a spiffy new job that pays enough for all comforts.

    Because she is cute! If she was ugly nobody would pay attention.

    She's like the Dems version of Sarah Palin. I doubt we will be talking about her much longer after somebody finds a black face picture of her.

    I just read a "diary" on another site and it seems that AOC's proposal doesn't go far enough. Their idea is that the GND is more about influencing demand where the real emphasis needs to be on ceasing production. The diarist doesn't offer any specifics but it seems that nothing less than elimination of all fossil fuels will be acceptable.

That is the difference between macroeconomics that the government should be focused on rather than microeconomics that the government should not be involved in at all.
    Oh you would be so so wrong. I really wish I wasn’t bound by client confidentiality. The myths and perceptions that people like yourself parrot, I would love to confont you with reality.
