‘How is the document real?’ Details of AOC’s ‘Green New Deal’ are so patently absurd, ‘it’s actually scary’

On Thursday socialist congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and her cohort, co-author Sen. Ed Markey, released her highly anticipated “Green New Deal,” and as expected, it was a hot mess.

Not only does the radical and inordinately expensive proposal call for eliminating air travel, combustion-engine vehicles, nuclear energy, fossil fuel energy and meat, but it reads like the whimsical, utopian daydreams of a young, naive 12-year-old teenager who lives in his or her head.

Suffice it to say, the plan has no chance of being implemented because it’s patently insane, but it certainly provides juicy red-meat for her radical base.

You may read the official plan here or peruse its FAQ here. Both were supplied to NPR by AOC.

Free Beacon’s Natalie Johnson provided some of the highlights below:

One – the plan contains no specifics:

Two – the plan sets unrealistic goals:

Three – the plan speaks of getting rid of farting cows and airplanes:

Four – the plan says that “how will we pay for it” is irrelevant:

Five – the plan calls for empowering America’s laziest residents with the right to spend all day eating honey buns and watching TV at the taxpayers’ expense:

Six – the plan makes it clear AOC is either completely insane or an idiot:

How absurd is the plan? So much so that even House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, a hardcore, radical left-wing politician who believes that border walls are “immoral,” has already dismissed it.

“It will be one of several or maybe many suggestions that we receive,” she said Wednesday. “The green dream or whatever they call it, nobody knows what it is, but they’re for it right?”

She got the “dream” part right to a T.

The following morning — i.e., the same morning that AOC released her GND — Pelosi released the names of House members who she’s assigned to serve on Select Committee on the Climate Crisis. Guess whose name was missing from the list. That of Miss Green New Deal.

Ouch …


Ocasio-Cortez’s radical plan also calls for the government providing free housing, free money, free education and a guaranteed job to all Americans. Except of course for the ones who’d rather spend all day eating honey buns and watching TV at the taxpayers’ expense

And as noted earlier, the plan offers no specifics on how to pay for these freebies, saying only that “how will we pay for it” is irrelevant but hinting at potentially “massive” increases in taxes.

“The plan itself seems to insinuate that billionaires can pay for the whole thing,” political columnist David Harsanyi notes. “Of course, best case scenario, it is estimated that instituting a top marginal tax rate of 70 percent would raise a little more than $700 billion over that decade. She does not explain how we’re going to raise the other 20 bazillion dollars it will cost to deconstruct modernity.”

It’s as if AOC (and other Democrats who buy into such plans) failed 2nd-grade math:

It’s like they failed 2nd grade math.

She’s taken seriously because the modern left has no standards, except of course for double standards.
