Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Proposes 70% Taxation to Pay for ‘Green New Deal’ (Renewable Energy).
Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) wants to tax the wealthy 70% to pay for her “green new deal” that would use the government to create new jobs by investing in renewable energy.
In a “60 Minutes” interview Ocasio-Cortez told Anderson Cooper that her “green new deal” would “require a lot of rapid change that we don’t even conceive as possible right now.”
This includes raising taxes to 70% on people at the “tippy-tops” so they can carry their “fair share” of the tax burden.
She compared her renewable energy deal to other “radical” policies like Abraham Lincoln’s Emancipation Proclamation, and Roosevelt’s launching of Social Security in the New Deal.
This “new deal” is actually an old idea that was first brought forward by Barack Obama crony, Van Jones. The deal would implement classic socialist policies.
Politicians often use proposed environmental crisis to push these socialist policies forward.
Proponents often exaggerate the threat of climate change and other environmental challenges. AOC herself has warned of “cataclysmic climate disaster” unless the United States moves to 100% renewable energy sources in the next ten years.
Obama’s “green jobs” program was one of the many failures during his presidency many of the investments made never paid off.
