Green New Deal Reintroduced By AOC, Markey Or Something

Remember when they introduced it back in February, 2019? The GOP controlled Senate voted on it, and every single Democrat voted “present”, including sponsor Ed Markey (who takes lots and lots of fossil fueled trips from Massachusetts to D.C.). AOC raged about the Senate voting on her legislation, forgetting it was also sponsored by Senator Markey. Then she raged for several years, failing to demand a vote in the House. Now?

AOC, Markey reintroduce Green New Deal proposal aimed at climate change, economic injustice

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Sen. Ed Markey have reintroduced the Green New Deal, the sweeping climate change and economic justice plan that Republicans have used to paint Democrats as radical socialists.

The proposal is a redux of the same resolution the two lawmakers introduced in 2019, calling not just for a decarbonization of the economy but also a fundamental reshaping of the nation’s social safety net to steer substantially more government help to low-income and minority communities.

The 10-year mobilization plan calls for free higher education for all Americans, “affordable, safe, and adequate” housing, an expansion of millions more union jobs, and high-quality health care.

“Not only do we refuse to leave any community behind but those who have been left behind come first,” Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., said during a Capitol Hill news conference Tuesday. “We’re going to transition to a 100% carbon-free economy that is more unionized, more just, more dignified and that guarantees more health care and housing than we’re ever had before. That’s our goal.”

This isn’t really about ‘climate change’, is it. Hey, remember when AOC worked overtime to kill off the jobs that Amazon would have brought to her district?

Republicans routinely ridiculed the Green New Deal in the past, calling it a social “manifesto” that showed how out of touch Democrats are. In 2019, then-Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., brought the resolution to the floor without any hearings as a ploy to get Democrats on record in support of the measure. No senators, including all Democrats, voted for the resolution in what Democratic Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., called a “sham” process. (snip)

Markey told reporters he’s optimistic about its chances this time because much has changed since the Green New Deal was first introduced: Black Lives Matter protests have shined a spotlight on racial injustice, a change in administration, and corporations have begun to realize they need to act as well.

What does any of that have to do with climate apocalypse? I’m thinking McConnell was correct, and, like I’ve said for decades, ‘climate change’ is just a means to push the hardcore Progressive (nice fascism) agenda.

“General Motors is now moving to produce electric vehicles by 2035,” he said. “That was not on the scoreboard two years ago.”

Fourteen years from now? Maybe people will be interested by then. Because few are now. You don’t see AOC, Markey, or Biden driving one, do you? Anyhow, will it get a vote this time? Will it even be discussed in committee?

    Energy Secretary Jennifer Granholm owns up to $5 million in the electric battery and vehicle manufacturer President Joe Biden will promote on Tuesday as part of his push for a $1.9 trillion infrastructure bill.

    The Department of Energy did not respond to multiple requests for comment.

    Senate Democrats have also recruited climate “experts” in recent weeks to bolster government investment in green energy. Former Goldman Sachs executive Bob Litterman, for example, praised the American Jobs Plan while underscoring the need to “dramatically increase the flow of capital towards investments that will reduce emissions” during a Thursday Senate Budget Committee hearing. But Litterman—who also called for a “tax on fossil fuel production”—failed to mention that he is “betting his personal cash” on a slew of investments that short carbon-based energy companies. Litterman’s investment firm, Kepos Capital, is also invested in “assets related to a rapid transition to a low-carbon economy,” according to the Wall Street Journal.

    “Many Wall Street executives who have been telling their clients to invest in green energy stocks are now key Biden administration officials and will use taxpayer dollars to buy those green products,” Turner said. “We talk about Big Pharma and the military-industrial complex, but big green is a real thing, and some people are going to get very rich thanks to the taxpayers.”

    AOC drives a Tesla
    Whether she owns or leases I am unsure
    Tesla stock has gone up from $4 to 800 in 8 years

    • Kye says:

      And yet you neither drive a Tesla nor own its stock. What does that say about you?

      BTW, if you’re trying to get people here to drive Tesla’s using AOC is not the way.

      How does a woman who grosses $174,000 (about $136,000 net) a year complain about $2700 per month rent?

      • Est1950 says:

        Because the dumb Sandy has 176,000 dollars in student debt. This is by her own admission during a congressional hearing.

        Any wonder why she has been trying so hard to have student debt canceled?

    • david7134 says:

      John,
      You don’t understand the stock market, quit referring to it. Tesla stock is way over valued for its auto performance. So I asked a tech guy why he purchases the stock, answer is the patents owned, that is the real value.

      • Est1950 says:

        I for one and fully on board with Elon Musk who is one of the few billionaires who is more conservative than liberal and is fully on board with the rights complaints against censorship. He even moved out of California to Texas and wants to start his own Social Media platform that upholds the values of free speech.

        Elon Musk is the left’s worst nightmare. He provides their pet project in electric cars but is more conservative than liberal which is an anti-thesis to their agenda.

        The enemy of my enemy is my friend. You know. Time to embrace the lefts mantra.
