Ocasio-Cortez’s ‘Green New Deal’ Gets THRASHED After Zero Dems Vote ‘Yes’ (Details)

BURNED!

The Senate voted on Tuesday on freshman Democrat Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s “Green New Deal,” an ambitious project that would cost upwards of $100 trillion taxpayer dollars.

Things didn’t work out in AOC’s favor – not by a long shot.

Four Democrats sided with Republicans and voted “No,” while 43 Dems voted “present.”

In other words, not one member of the Senate voted “yes.”

From Fox News:

The Green New Deal, a sweeping Democratic proposal for dealing with climate change, fell at the first hurdle Tuesday as the Senate failed to reach the 60 votes necessary to begin debate on the non-binding resolution, with 42 Democrats and Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., voting “present.”

No senator voted to begin debate on the legislation, while 57 lawmakers voted against breaking the filibuster. Democratic Sens. Doug Jones of Alabama, Joe Manchin of West Virginia and Kyrsten Sinema of Arizona joined 53 Republicans in voting “no.” Sen. Angus King, I-Maine, who caucuses with the Democrats, also voted “no.”

The vote had been teed up by Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., in a bid to make Democratic senators — including several 2020 presidential candidates — go on the record about the measure. McConnell had called the proposal “a radical, top-down, socialist makeover of the entire U.S. economy.”

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:

Save conservative media!

Democrats and entitlement. Everyone deserves everything, even those who have broken the law to get into the United States. No free lunch to Democrats essentially means free everything. Bernie Sanders just can’t help himself. Free healthcare. Free college. What’s next? Free housing? Free computers? Free spring training tickets for baseball fans to boo the Houston Astros? Come on, man.

Would you like to pony up more of your hard earned dollars to take care of illegals? From Center for Immigration Studies: Many of the Democratic candidates for president have endorsed providing health insurance to illegal immigrants. This analysis estimates the cost of providing illegal immigrants access to the existing system of government health benefits for low-income people. (We do not model the costs of scrapping the current system and giving all U.S. residents free government health insurance, as some candidates have proposed.) We estimate that there are 4.9 million uninsured illegal immigrants with incomes low enough to qualify for Medicaid or Advanced Premium Tax Credits (APTC), which are the subsidies provided by the Affordable Care Act (ACA). Assuming a realistic enrollment rate, the cost of providing ACA subsidies to illegal immigrants would be about $10 billion per year, with costs rising to as much as $23 billion per year if all eligible illegal immigrants enrolled. Costs would be similar under a hybrid approach that provides Medicaid for the lowest-income illegal immigrants and ACA subsidies for those with higher incomes. South Carolina Senator Lindsey Graham (R) made a big announcement recently and it has to do with Obamacare. Here’s the scoop, via Breitbart: Lindsey Graham said that Republicans will repeal Obamacare if Trump wins, the GOP keeps the Senate, and if…

Former Criminal Justice Adviser to Bernie Sanders Busted Plotting Jailbreak (Details)

I-R-O-N-I-C

If Bernie Sanders supporters aren’t shooting at a Republican Congressman or harassing conservatives, it appears they’re busy planning violent jailbreaks. Well, at least one of them was. Seems like a story straight out of Hollywood. But nope. This is real. A guy who once advised the 2020 Democrat Socialist presidential hopeful was caught doing something he definitely shouldn’t have been doing. From Free Beacon: A former adviser on criminal justice issues to Sen. Bernie Sanders (I., Vt.) was plotting a violent prison escape, stashing guns and ammunition inside a soon-to-be-opened prison, authorities said this week. Nashville police said Wednesday that Alex Friedmann, a prison reform advocate who helped shape the Vermont senator’s criminal justice agenda, spent months plotting an escape for inmates of the city’s detention center. Sanders worked with Friedmann to develop positions on criminal justice in the lead up to his 2016 presidential campaign—positions Sanders still touts. CONTINUED: Davidson County sheriff Daron Hall, at a press conference on Wednesday, said Friedmann hid at least three loaded guns upon breaking into the detention center in December. The break-in was part of “an extremely deliberate and, in my opinion, evil plan” Friedmann developed “over many months,” Hall said. WATCH: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=koWRKwAX1_Y An undercover video caught a Sanders campaign staffer explaining that the Vermont senator is exactly who conservatives thought he was from day one. He is not a Democrat Socialist. He’s just a straight up socialist.

What if it meant the government completely took over healthcare? Would you be interested then!? Sanders seems to think “a lot of people” would absolutely love it. No joke. The 2020 presidential candidate actually said these words. It’s as if he thinks all Americans are ignorant simply because his followers are the sharpest knives in…
