That is quite a bit!

Democrat Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s “Green New Deal,” if somehow passed by Congress, was thought to have cost U.S. taxpayers tens of trillions of dollars. A new report suggests the real number could nearly hit $100 trillion.

That would come to, roughly, $650,000 per American household. From Daily Wire:

Socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s (D-NY) “Green New Deal” — a massive government takeover of large portions of the U.S. economy — is projected to cost up to $93 trillion.

Bloomberg reports that Ocasio-Cortez’s far-left plan would “tally between $51 trillion and $93 trillion over 10-years, concludes American Action Forum, which is run by Douglas Holtz-Eakin, who directed the non-partisan CBO from 2003 to 2005.”

The enormous price tag, which amounts to over $650,000 per U.S. household, covers a low-carbon electricity grid, net zero emissions transportation system, guaranteed jobs, universal health care, guaranteed green housing, and food security.

Ocasio-Cortez is “the boss.” Everybody good with that?

Her reasoning is that she’s trying to do something about “climate change” by introducing her “Green New Deal,” while her critics aren’t doing anything.

Has AOC considered that the opposition isn’t doing anything because there’s nothing to do?

Check this out…

AOC: “I’m at least trying and they’re not. If you’re trying, you’ve got all the power, you’re driving the agenda, you’re doing all this stuff.

Like, I just introduced Green New Deal two weeks ago and it’s creating all of this conversation. Why? Because no one else is even trying — because no one else has even tried!

I’m like you try! You do it! Cuz you’re not!

So until you do it, I’M THE BOSS! How about that?

WATCH her “ego trip” unfold:

Ocasio-Cortez has become known for her ramblings on Instagram Live.

Given that she’s a Millennial, it’s a smart way for her to connect with fans.

During a recent feed, AOC went off on everything from President Trump and the border wall to white supremacy and the failed Amazon headquarters deal.

Check out some of her rantings…

Ocasio-Cortez made the comments during a 9 a.m. Instagram Live feed in her leisure attire as she sipped coffee in her sparsely decorated D.C. apartment, which she described as her “monastery with no furniture.” The broadcast is the latest in a string of similar online videos that have helped to cement Ocasio-Cortez’s status as the Democrat Party’s leading socialist darling by blending her candid thoughts on politics with her transition to Congress.

I think everybody should have the insurance I have and that’s just the way it should be.

I think [the wall is] a moral abomination. I think it’s like the Berlin wall. 70 percent of the American people think this is the dumbest idea ever.

It’s not my problem the majority of the American people think it’s a scam, a sham, a monument to white supremacy. It’s not my fault.

For those of you who don’t know about the actual deal, you should know that New York City was getting totally screwed with this Amazon deal. We were, like, on paper giving helipads. We were, like, renaming creeks. We were providing, like, hard tangible tax breaks for very little on the paper in return. The process was designed to skip every community process.

“I’m not going to just knock on the door of your house and say this is mine now,” Ocasio-Cortez said.

If I just walk up to you on the street and say, ‘hey, if you give me twenty bucks, I promise I’m gonna come back – I’m gonna leave but I gonna promise I’m gonna come back and give you a really nice coat. But I need to leave, I need to take your twenty bucks first, it’s not going to happen at once.’ You’d be like, ‘you’re crazy, no, get out of my face.’

China’s ‘Oppressive & Inhumane Regime’ Has Been Added to UN Human Rights Council (Details)

Right after they failed to warn the world sooner of COVID-19…

China has no business being on the Human Rights Council of the United Nations. That should go without saying. And yet, we live in crazy times. Here’s the deal, via UN Watch: China was appointed on Wednesday to a United Nations Human Rights Council panel where it will play a key role in picking the world body’s human rights investigators — including global monitors on freedom of speech, health, enforced disappearances, and arbitrary detention — in a move that has sparked protest by international human rights activists. “Allowing China’s oppressive and inhumane regime to choose the world investigators on freedom of speech, arbitrary detention and enforced disappearances is like making a pyromaniac into the town fire chief,” said Hillel Neuer, executive director of UN Watch, a non-governmental human rights organization based in Geneva that closely monitors the 47-nation UN Human Rights Council, and a leader in speaking out at the UN for victims in China. Neuer added, “It’s absurd and immoral for the UN to allow China’s oppressive government a key role in selecting officials who shape international human rights standards and report on violations worldwide.” https://twitter.com/HillelNeuer/status/1245890358342553603?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1245890358342553603&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Funwatch.org%2Fchina-joins-u-n-human-rights-panel-will-help-pick-experts-on-free-speech-health-arbitrary-detention%2F https://twitter.com/UNWatch/status/1245891526892363776?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1245891526892363776&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Ftherightscoop.com%2Funbelievable-china-joins-united-nations-human-rights-group-despite-unleashing-global-pandemic%2F Here’s more COVID-19 randomness, via Twitter… https://twitter.com/Breaking911/status/1246522120584208384 https://twitter.com/realDailyWire/status/1246548840980725760 https://twitter.com/TMZ/status/1246578318679343104 https://twitter.com/realDailyWire/status/1246554736788033536 https://twitter.com/barstoolsports/status/1246587867603886080 https://twitter.com/TMZ/status/1246432969469726720 https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/1246522957398245381 https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/1246522958421639168 https://twitter.com/Breaking911/status/1246534491402895363 https://twitter.com/IAMTOMMACDONALD/status/1246510492958494720

Ocasio-Cortez: America Is A ‘Brutal, Barbarian Society’ for Most ‘Working-Class Americans’

She cannot be serious…

New York Democrat Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez should not be seen as a role model for young women. Sure, she obtained a prestigious position at a young age as a member of the lower chamber. But at the end of the day, morals and values are what matter. AOC also has next to zero love for her country, despite her successes. To claim the United States is a “brutal, barbarian society” is bush league at its finest.

Either that, or she’d unintentionally list things she deems unacceptable that actually occurred on Obama’s watch. Behar named Ocasio-Cortez as a potential running mate for 2020 presidential hopeful Joe Biden. There’s just one major problem. And Joy had no idea.
