Several weeks ago, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez rolled out her signature bill the Green New Deal. Since then it has been highly scrutinized mainly due to the the completely absurd proposals contained in it.
The freshman congresswoman wants to get make air travel completely obsolete, upgrade every single building, universal health care and subsidized college and in a version that first appeared on the congresswoman’s website, living for those unwilling to work.
And she wants to do all of that in just a decade or so because, according to Ocasio-Cortez, we only have that amount of time to address climate change!
Well, of course, Ocasio-Cortez didn’t include a price tag for all of her pie-in-the-sky ideas but that’s beside the point, right? According to her, at least she’s trying and she’s the boss, so take that!
