Bernie Proposes Even More Expensive Green New Deal

Not to be outdone by upstart socialist Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (NY), 2020 contender Senator Bernie Sanders (VT) has proposed a staggering $16 TRILLION Green New Deal of his own not merely to tackle “climate change” but social justice as well. According to the New York Times, the proposed Sanders’ bill would declare “climate change a national emergency; envisions building new solar, wind and geothermal power sources across the country; and commits $200 billion to help poor nations cope with climate change.” It also mandates ZERO fossil fuels by 2050… all paid for by “making the wealthy and large corporations pay their fair share.” Something tells us that Americans won’t take kindly to checking Facebook on wooden smartphones.

Here’s more from Town Hall…

Despite not voting for the Green New Deal in the senate this past winter, Vermont Democratic Socialist presidential candidate Bernie Sanders introduced a Green New Deal of his own on Thursday as part of his 2020 campaign platform. The price tag for the global warming defeating -racial injustice combatting – pro-socialism on steroids catch-all bill is a whopping 16 trillion dollars and zero cents.

As noted by the New York Times, the proposed bill by Sanders would declare “climate change a national emergency; envisions building new solar, wind and geothermal power sources across the country; and commits $200 billion to help poor nations cope with climate change.”
