Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is the leading socialist voice in America today.
And she is a sitting U.S. Congresswoman.
But she just got news that will be sure to crush her biggest dream.
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has a lot of bad ideas.
She believes in socialism, a system that continually fails every country it is tried in.
All she has to do is look at Venezuela to understand how dangerous her ideas are.
But she insists that things will be different for her, and continues to promote her radical agenda from her position in the U.S. House of Representatives.
Perhaps her most radical position is the Green New Deal.
The Green New Deal is a proposal meant to mirror the New Deal of the 1930’s, with a radical environmentalist twist.
While many act like it is a new idea, it has been around for years, first being pushed by the fringe far-left Green Party.
The plan is to shift the U.S. energy to be 100% renewal by the year 2030.
Socialists believe that the new systems will be cheaper, better for the environment, and create countless new jobs in the production.
But there are a lot of problems with the idea.
The first issue is that renewable or “green” energy is not cheaper than traditional fossil fuels.
Democrats have been trying to make it seem cheaper by forcing harsh regulations onto fossil fuel production.
But that only proves that the only way they can compete in the market it through manipulation.
In reality, fossil fuels are remarkably cheaper and account for a massive amount of U.S. jobs.
Promoting green energy will be extremely expensive, and create a more costly product.
But it is a feel-good idea that many Democrats support for that reason.
They believe that they need to promote something extreme in order to remain relevant in the current political climate.
Sen. Cory Booker even claims enacting the new deal is on the same caliber as the moon landing, or defeating the Nazis, in importance.
But while some Democrats are all for it, Ocasio-Cortez and her allies are going to be sad to see that enthusiasm isn’t shared by everyone in their party.
In fact, there are some very surprising politicians speaking out against the Green New Deal.
The most shocking of those figures is Sen. Dianne Feinstein, who is generally one of the most far-left figures in the Democrat Party.
Speaking to The Daily Caller, Feinstein explains her problems with the bill.
“At this stage, I am not a supporter of it because it’s been looked at very cursorily and if you read the language, it’s a very big program with a huge governmental cost,” Feinstein told the Daily Caller. “None of that’s been looked at.”
Other Democrats are less-than-impressed with the measure, including Sens. Tammy Baldwin, Doug Jones, and Amy Klobuchar.
This shows Ocasio-Cortez that she has a long way to go.
Even with full Democrat support, she has little chance of getting any portion of her agenda passed.
And unless she really changes things, she won’t ever have the chance to implement her agenda.
Do you think the Green New Deal is a good idea?
