Topic: The “Green New Deal”
AOC (Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez) is promoting the notion of a “green new deal.” The goal is to fight for “climate justice.” She believes in the idea of man-made catastrophic climate change and is promoting what she calls “radical” measures to fight it. Jarrett Stepman is a writer for The Daily Signal of the Heritage Foundation and recently wrote an article about the green new deal and how, in reality, it is a “Trojan horse for socialism.” Stepman says, “It shouldn’t be a surprise that the avowed ‘democratic socialist’ went with the predictable ‘tax the rich’ formula in order to pay for a massive government program to combat climate change.
But it would hardly be good news for most Americans if Ocasio-Cortez got her way.” Jarrett Stepman joins Jerry Newcombe on Vocal Point to discuss the “Green New Deal.” www.dailysignal.com
