It’s pretty obvious by now that Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is a bit crazy, but the new bill she just proposed with Democratic Senator Ed Markey of Massachusetts is on a completely different level of crazy.
The Green New Deal is a package of various environmental ideas, which calls for the end of gas cars and planes. Sounds crazy, right? Well it gets even worse.
The Green New Deal also calls for the end of farting cows because of the toxic gases they produce. News flash: all cows fart.
Markey also released bullet points that described a plan “to mobilize every aspect of American society at a scale not seen since World War 2 to achieve net-zero greenhouse gas emissions and create economic prosperity for all.”
See what the Daily Mail had to say about these bullet points:
Markey’s checklist is a kitchen-sink collection of liberal priorities including guarantees of ‘healthy food’; ‘high-quality health care’; safe, affordable, adequate housing’; ‘high-quality education’; and ‘economic security for all who are unable or unwilling to work.’
A Republican Senate aide told DailyMail.com Thursday afternoon of that proposal: ‘This is a great prescription for making sure a large majority of people become unwilling to work. Great job, Einstein.’
Markey and Ocasio-Cortez wrote that they ‘are calling for a full transition off fossil fuels and zero greenhouse gases.’
They acknowledge the difficulty with achieving a ‘zero emissions’ society in just 10 years, ‘because we aren’t sure that we’ll be able to fully get rid of farting cows and airplanes that fast.’
All cows emit methane in their flatulence; ‘getting rid of farting cows’ suggests getting rid of all beef.
According to their plans, they plan to not only get rid of fossil fuels, but also plan on dismantling every nuclear power plant in America. This raises the question, how are we going to power our cars and trains without any sources of power?
This plan also includes $4.6 trillion, TRILLION, in new government spending on infrastructure projects which would aim “to remove greenhouse gas emissions and pollution from every sector of our economy.”
Amazing how they want to spend $4.6 TRILLION on infrastructure but they can’t spend $5.7 billion on a border wall.
Check out what Dan Bongino had to say about the Green New Deal:
The “Green New Deal” promises taxpayer money to those “unwilling to work.” How absurd that we have to waste America’s collective energy and time talking about childish, ridiculous nonsense such as this.

Donald Trump Jr. even had something to say:
Well that’s obviously going to “pay for itself” 🙄
My 4 year old could put together more viable plan than this. https://t.co/fHUXHyKrpB

So how would we pay for all of this? Check out what the Daily Mail had to say:
Markey and Ocasio-Cortez say they aren’t ruling out a ‘carbon tax,’ but claim it would be just ‘a tiny part’ of an economic transformation.
And Republicans who worry about how to pay for it, they write, should rest easy: It will be covered ‘the same way we paid for the New Deal, the 2008 bank bailout and extended quantitative easing programs. The same way we paid for World War II and all our current wars.’
That would involve the creation of new lines of credit in banks that don’t yet exist, likely devaluing America’s currency abroad.
Crazy right? It’s times like this that remind us of how lucky we are to have Republicans like President Trump in office and how important it is to vote for rational and smart individuals.
