Poor serfs rejoice! Democratic 2020 contender Kamala Harris (D-CA) says cost is NO PROBLEM, or at least that’s her line when it comes to forcing “Green New Deal” insanity on America. Of course, her argument hinges on poor comprehension of Economics 101 replete with misuse of such concepts as “externalities” and return on investment. Harris also ignored CNN’s John King when he asked about China, which will take full advantage to run circles around us. Instead of answering, she deflected with: “What’s the return on investment? People in the private sector understand this really well. It’s not about a cost. It’s about an investment.” In typical fashion, Leftists view “cost” (i.e., taxpayer dollars) as “investment” so long as it’s someone else’s money. On the bright side, at least she’s not lying about “affordable” as a certain former POTUS did.

It must be nice to live your life not having to worry how much something costs. Of course, you would have to be fabulously wealthy.
Or a liberal Democratic senator from California with access to an unlimited amount of taxpayer funds.
Or, in Kamala Harris’s case, both.
Spending other people’s money can be fun. It can also be politically profitable.
Just ask Senator Harris.
“There’s no question we have to be practical. But being practical also recognizes that climate change is an existential threat to us as human beings,” Harris began. “Being practical recognizes that greenhouse gas emissions are threat to our air, and threatening our planet. And that it is well within our capacity as human beings to change our behaviors in a way that we can reduce its effect. That’s practical. Of course we can afford it.”
