AOC Says Her Green New Deal, Which She Won’t Demand A Vote On, Would Cost $0 If Passed

The Green New Deal was released in February of 2019. To reiterate, every single Democrat in the Senate, including sponsor Ed Markey, voted present when it was put up for a vote. AOC became mad over holding a vote, wondering why the Senate was voting on HER House legislation, forgetting that Markey was the Senate sponsor. And since that time, AOC has yammered about it in various forms, but, still has not demanded a vote

Ocasio-Cortez Hits Critic For Not Reading Green New Deal Bill, Says It ‘Costs $0 If Passed’

Democratic New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez ripped one of her critics Thursday for suggesting the Green New Deal would cost Americans a fortune and require the government to confiscate every penny from billionaire and multimillionaires.

Ocasio-Cortez scolded conservative columnist Jonah Goldberg Thursday for saying in a tweet that taking every dollar from the likes of Bill Gates, Jeff Bezos and others would not “cover a fraction of your Green New Deal fantasy.”

“Totally get it if you’ve never bothered to read the legislation you’re commenting so authoritatively on,” Ocasio-Cortez wrote in reply before noting that the GND is a “non-binding resolution of values” and “costs us $0 if passed.”

Ocasio-Cortez’s signature legislation calls for several progressive proposals, including moving the United States off of fossil fuels within a decade, providing universal health care, basic income programs and job guarantees, as well as a slew of other ambitious plans. The GND would cost $0 if it remained a non-binding resolution and was not coupled with legislation satisfying the deal’s agenda.

Well, that’s true, it would cost zero if passed as a non-binding resolution, like many other resolutions. It begs the question, if that’s the case, why won’t the Democrat controlled House pass it? Heck, why won’t they even bring it up for a vote? Why won’t AOC demand a vote?

Several reports have determined that legislation actually enacting the GND would be an expensive boondoggle. The GND would cost households an average of between $74,287 and $76,683 in Colorado, Michigan and Pennsylvania, a February report from the Competitive Enterprise Institute noted.

The American Action Forum figured it would cost around $93 trillion over 10 years. Democrats definitely do not want to even bring it up for a vote because it is beyond the far, far left wish list, and it would not serve them well with the non-crazy leftist Democrats when voting time comes around. Just telling citizens that they want to enact these major, monster sized big government initiatives could cause major electoral problems.
