Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez's 'Green New Deal' is Commie Red

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez 
UPDATE BELOW: AOC admits it is about "social justice" change.

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has released an overview of her “Green New Deal.”

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 security
  • High-quality education, including higher education and trade schools
  • Clean air and water and access to nature
  • Healthy food
  • High-quality health care
  • Safe, 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. 

She knows exactly how transforming her mad plan would be, she writes (my bold):
The level of investment required is massive. Even if every billionaire and company came together and were willing to pour all the resources at their disposal into this investment, the aggregate value of the investments they would make would not be sufficient... we’re just saying that the level of investment required will need every actor to pitch in and that the government is best placed to be the prime driver
She wants to (my bold) "upgrade or replace every building in US for state-of-the-art energy efficiency."

Every building in America!!

Assuming for the moment that climate change needs to be fought and that the U.S. can do something about it, this woman has no understanding of the concepts of marginal costs and benefits. Under any program where basic economics is understood, you would never call on upgrading or replacing every building in the country. This plan is a plan for the introduction of a remarkable level of central planning into the fibre of the United States private property system. It is not overly aggressive to call it a strong march toward communism.



 Ocasio-Cortez said in an interview on NPR on Thursday:
This is really about providing justice for communities and just transitions for communities. So, really the heart of the Green New Deal is about social justice.


  1. She could be working for Trump.....

  2. Sadly after the market collapses we are going to get some hard core's going to suck.

  3. Is this another "Fundamental Transformation"?

  4. Socialism is just hardcore wealth-disparity and inequality---on steroids.
