Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez's 'Green New Deal' is Commie Red
(From The Economic Policy Journal)
She calls it "a massive transformation of our society" and it is, but it is far more than a "battling climate change" proposal, it is an attempt, on steroids, to move the United States in the direction of hardcore central planning. It calls for building "on FDR’s second bill of rights by guaranteeing":
A job with a family-sustaining wage, family and medical leave, vacations, and retirement securityHigh-quality education, including higher education and trade schools
Clean air and water and access to nature
High-quality health careSafe, affordable, adequate housing
Economic environment free of monopolies
Economic security for all who are unable or unwilling to work
Note: Most of this has nothing to do with battling climate change or even a green environment, it is a march toward communism.
AOC is using a slick Leninist type ploy here, use a "crisis" in one area to advance a major wholesale change in society.
