Democratic socialist Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (NY) doesn’t merely dislike facts. She also dislikes fiscal sanity, which will cost taxpayers to the tune of $7 TRILLION if her “Green New Deal” is not stopped. The 29-year-old former bartender is calling for “national, social, industrial and economic mobilization at a scale not seen since World War II” to bring about “the country’s near-total economic transformation” in “approximately ten years.” Part of the deal includes eliminating ALL fossil-fuel powered electricity and ALL gas-powered cars. In addition, the plan promises a job for every American. Memo to AOC: socialism has been tried…time and again. It has failed. History is a curious thing, isn’t it?

To Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, everything oughta be free. Health care — free. College — free. Heck, the federal government oughta’ give everybody a job, too, and a pile of free money to boot, according to the New York democratic socialist.
Ocasio-Cortez has put forward a draft proposal for a massive government program she calls the “Green New Deal” (yes, she’s right up there with President Franklin D. Roosevelt, who created the “New Deal” during the Depression). And now we’re finding out the price tag for the program: $7 trillion.
The 29-year-old former bartender, who has been a House member for one month, told fellow representatives in a letter that her plan calls for a “national, social, industrial and economic mobilization at a scale not seen since World War II,” Fox News reports.
“Next week, we plan to release a resolution that outlines the scope and scale of the Green New Deal,” Ocasio-Cortez said in the letter, adding that the country’s near-total economic transformation should take approximately ten years.
