Socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez released her written manifesto of the Green New Deal, and it is absolutly terrifying. Her Green New Deal is nothing shy of a Utopian Communist outlook. Ocasio-Cortez calls for removal of all Fossil-Fuels and cars, free College, Universal Health Care, And Reperations for minorities.
Ocasio-Cortez calls to be a 100% clean energy in ten years. This would come at removing all fossil fuels and any motor vehicle that exist. Ocasio-Cortez continued to call for high speed trains for public transportation, which would replace cars and plans. You would only be allowed to fly plans if you are traveling internationally.
Ocasio-Cortez continues to call for reparations for minorities to make up for sins of the past.
“To promote justice and equity by stop- ping current, preventing future, and repairing historic oppression of indigenous communities, communities of color, migrant communities, deindustrialized communities, depopulated rural communities, the poor, low-income workers,
women, the elderly, the unhoused, people with disabilities, and youth (referred to in this reso- lution as ‘‘frontline and vulnerable commu- nities’’)”
Ocasio-Cortez calls for updating ever building in the country.
“building or upgrading to energy-effi- cient, distributed, and ‘‘smart’’ power grids, and working to ensure affordable access to elec-
(E) upgrading all existing buildings in the
United States and building new buildings to achieve maximal energy efficiency, water effi- ciency, safety, affordability, comfort, and dura- bility, including through electrification;”
Ocasio-Cortez calls for free College for all.
“providing resources, training, and
high-quality education, including higher edu- cation, to all people of the United States, with a focus on frontline and vulnerable commu- nities, so those communities may be full and equal participants in the Green New Deal mobi- lization;”
Other notable things Ocasio-Cortez calls for.
“providing all people of the United States with—
(i) high-quality health care;
(II) affordable, safe, and adequate
(iii) economic security; and
(iv) access to clean water, clean air,
healthy and affordable food, and nature.”
The Green New Deal is ecxtremly radical and is unafforadable. There is no way to know how much her Green New Deal would cost but it is likely to go higher than the initial $50 Trillion projection over ten years.
