Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is as crazy as a rabid bat. America don't let her convince you this disaster will ever work. Socialism will do to America just what it did to Venezuela!
The text of the legislation, which is a nonbinding resolution, lays out a broad vision for how the country might tackle climate change over the next decade, while creating high-paying jobs and protecting vulnerable communities.
Unlike a bill, this type of legislation is not presented to the president and cannot become law. Even if the Green New Deal passed in one or both chambers of Congress, separate legislation would have to be introduced to make any of the resolution’s goals a reality.
I think it is very important for the Democrats to press forward with their Green New Deal. It would be great for the so-called “Carbon Footprint” to permanently eliminate all Planes, Cars, Cows, Oil, Gas & the Military - even if no other country would do the same. Brilliant!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) February 9, 2019
Much of the response to the proposal has focused on details that don’t appear in the resolution text. President Donald Trump, for example, suggested on Feb. 9th that the plan would “permanently eliminate all Planes, Cars, Cows, Oil, Gas & the Military.”
