Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is a socialist Democrat who many believe is the future of the party.
She is working overtime to prove that her socialist vision will help America.
But that will be harder to do after she got news destroying her biggest plan.
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has a lot of massive plans she is working to bring to life.
And they are all drastically opposed to the ideals that America is founded on.
The Founders envisioned a country that enshrines the rights of individuals above all else, with a limited government whose goal is simply to protect those rights.
But Ocasio-Cortez, like all other socialists, reject that idea altogether.
Instead, they believe in collectivism, using the government to solve all of America’s problems, even if it tramples on the rights of the individual.
That’s why she believes in socialized medicine.
Instead of allowing individuals to make their own healthcare decisions, she believes that the government knows best, and should implement one-size fits all policies.
But she doesn’t stop at healthcare.
In fact, healthcare isn’t even the furthest she goes in her collectivist view.
She also believes that the government should enact massive regulations, and implement unheard of programs to completely change the energy industry.
Her Green New Deal puts a mandate on making the U.S. entirely carbon neutral within 30 years.
To do that, she wants to do away with domestic air travel altogether, in lieu of a high-speed rail system, among many extreme changes.
And in doing these she believes the government can revamp the economy through the creation of millions of jobs in green energy.
Of course, any reasonable person realizes that this is an insane idea that can’t work.
But she continues to tout it as her revolutionary way to save the world.
And despite the naysayers, she continues to stand by it.
But news relating to green energy implementation at the state level is proving definitively that her plan will not work.
States attempting to implement measures designed to reduce carbon emissions are learning that not only are they unpopular, but they are extremely costly.
In Washington State, the government has been trying, and failing to implement a tax on carbon emissions.
Democrat Gov. Jay Inslee is pledging to do it one way or the other, “whether the people like it or not.”
If she is to succeed, there is no proof it will actually do anything to improve the economy, but it will cost taxpayers an estimated $230 more each year.
But that is the plan for Democrats pushing these proposals.
Because their “green energy” proposals are much more costly than traditional energy production, they need to artificially make the cost of fossil fuels more expensive through government regulation.
The perfect example of this is Georgetown, Texas.
Georgetown is one of the biggest cities in the country to convert 100% of their energy production through solar and wind power, a feat former Vice President Al Gore used to praise.
But because of the realities around those energy solutions being much more costly, the city is dealing with a massive $30 million cost over the past five years.
They are now trying to find a way out of their initial plan, in order to save money.
This is just one city, and they aren’t even going as far as Ocasio-Cortez wants to go.
They are a clear example of these policies not working.
