Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) released her “Green New Deal” a non binding resolution that is poised to prevent the end of the world in 12 years….as she has warned in the past.
Ocasio-Cortez along with the text of the new deal also sent out an Overview of the plan to help us understand what’s in it. This is where is gets fun. Below are the 5 most outrageous items listed in the Overview of the “Green New Deal.”
#1 – All new jobs will be union jobs.
The GND ( or Green New Deal ) claims it will create millions of jobs with “family supporting wages” and will be protected by a union. Also guaranteed are family and medical leave , vacations , and retirement security.
#2 – No more airplanes.
The GND plans to get rid of every combustion-engine in America While also “totally overhaul transportation by massively expanding electric vehicle manufacturing, build charging stations everywhere” and create affordable public transit available to all. No more planes. Just trains over oceans.
#3- Rebuild every building in the United States
According to Wall Street Oasis an online banking and investment forum there are 20 million commercial and industrial buildings in the US in 2015. I’ll just leave that one right there.
#4 – Plant lots of trees
Not a specific number of trees …just lots of them. I’m pretty sure AOC will tell us to stop planting once she has seen enough. I’m going to need a wheelbarrow.
#5 – Farting Cows
No word if non-farting cows will be allowed to survive. Maybe we give cows Gas-X and let them live? Eat your hamburgers before the Green New Deal is in full effect.
