Ocasio-Cortez, Dems, Release Green New Deal Resolution

The unhinged Warmist base is already upset that it doesn’t call for the government forcing Everyone Else to stop using fossil fuels in the near future. They aren’t going to like a couple other things

NPR reports

In very broad strokes, the Green New Deal legislation laid out by Ocasio-Cortez and Markey sets goals for some drastic measures to cut carbon emissions across the economy, from electricity generation to transportation to agriculture. In the process, it aims to create jobs and boost the economy.

In that vein, the proposal stresses that it aims to meet its ambitious goals while paying special attention to groups like the poor, disabled and minority communities that might be disproportionately affected by massive economic transitions like those the Green New Deal calls for.

In other words, it means that the resolution, not legislation, is going to absolutely crush the middle and lower classes, especially the very people the bill is supposed to help. As the Daily Caller notes on the release

Ocasio-Cortez’s non-binding resolution calls for a variety of social justice and welfare state goals, including “a family-sustaining wage, adequate family and medical leave, paid vacations and retirement security” and “high-quality health care” benefits for Americans.

The resolution calls for “repairing historic oppression” among certain groups, including minorities, immigrants, women, low-income workers, indigenous people and youth collectively called “frontline and vulnerable communities.”

What it does do is find ways to give those crushed citizens more government handouts to offset being crushed, which makes them more reliant and dependent on government, much like a kid is reliant and dependent on getting an allowance from mom and dad. And you can see this is more about social justice warrioring, and pandering and patronizing, of certain groups in word salad

Back to NPR

Importantly, it’s a nonbinding resolution, meaning that even if it were to pass (more on the challenges to that below), it wouldn’t itself create any new programs. Instead, it would potentially affirm the sense of the House that these things should be done in the coming years.

See, it’s not legislation, just a resolution, so, after all this coverage of the Importance and historic and stuff, it’s like naming a post office. They aren’t even trying. But, it may be that Pelosi and the other slightly more rational and less unhinged Socialist convinced AOC and the co-sponsors to not push it as legislation, as the old school Dems plan to push other crazy, but not quite as crazy, ‘climate change’ legislation.

Back to Daily Caller

“A six page, non-binding resolution marketed as a ‘War Plan’ proves Congressman Cortez isn’t prepared and hasn’t done her homework,” Dan Kish, distinguished senior fellow at the Institute for Energy Research, told The Daily Caller News Foundation.

“Running the world’s greatest economy on unicorn farts and rainbow stew all run by masterminds in Washington DC is a fool’s errand,” Kish said.

When will AOC give up her own big carbon ways and go carbon neutral?

OK, let’s see AOC and other Dems take the train home (or, heck, the bus), instead of flying home.

(Breitbart) Next, Ocasio-Cortez and Markey claim that the U.S. is experiencing “a 4-decade trend of economic stagnation, deindustrialization, and antilabor policies” — a statement that defies the actual data on economic growth and the revival of manufacturing in recent years, including rising wages for blue-collar workers.

The legislation then laments “erosion of the … bargaining power of workers in the United States” — as if picket lines had something to do with the environment. It also claims that climate change has “exacerbated systemic racial … ” injustices,” among other inequalities.

Getting the idea that ‘climate change’ has almost nothing to do with a changing climate yet? As the article notes “It reads like a Republican parody of the Democratic platform.”

    Just a resolution. Not even real legislation. Representative Barbie says, Passing laws is hard”. So the votes don’t matter and everyone gets to feel good about participating.

  3. Bill589 says:

    What is heard right before something massively stupid gets done while spending way too much of other people’s money: “I’m from the government and I’m here to help.”
