"The Green New Deal" Matters - For Reasons You May Not Have Considered

by The Daily Dose | Updated on 2.8.19

"The Green New Deal," proposed this week by Congressional Democrats including millennial superstar Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (AOC), is an ambitious plan meant to lay the groundwork for a host of legislative initiatives to come. It is definitely a must-watch piece of legislation -- for reasons you may not have considered.

    What is wrong with people? Moving into the future is NOT bad. Everyone talks about socialism like it’s a bad word. Any form of government is socialist in one form or another, because it’s the basis of SOCIety. Prefixes people. We learned this in grammar school. I’m tired of this Cold War rhetoric that says if everything isn’t a free-for-all, it’s communism. OMFG

    I’m getting pretty sick of this app promoting articles hat lean left but not right. You claim to be an unbiased source of information and while you typically do provide a lot of in-depth information, you always show left-leaning bias in your article selection or your wording of a conservative article. I hope you focus on fixing that.

    The Green New Deal is an amazing well-thought out program of The People, by The People, FOR THE PEOPLE. This program will benefit all people, including people on the other side of the planet. It will be a first step to help heal the planet from the devastation created by Capitalists, who do not have any concerns about how their greed is killing people, animals and the planet.

    No to Socialism! As for this new green deal, I swear a large number of the public in His country are idiots. No basic understanding of economics, civics, and are severely lacking in common sense. I wish I could pay for everything with unicorn milk and fairy farts...or just print money like AOC wants to. Where has our freedom gone? Since when is it a great idea to follow the path of Stalin, Mussolini, and Hitler? Oh. That’s right, it’s democratic socialism... so was the old Soviet Union. No matter how you try to change the wording or definition, it’s still socialism.

    Lol what a pathetic attempt to cover up what you've done. You proposed socialism and got soundly rejected by most Americans. Now you try to say "Just kidding" just because every democratic presidential candidate, including the supposed frontrunner Harris fully endorsed it before they even read it. Democrats have endorsed the destruction of America, to fight for the killing of infants, and unlimited immigration w/ unlimited welfare. #MAGA#2020#LIBERTY

    This is about socialist standards creating jobs for people to make them reliant on government. In this capitalistic environment we have now we have a prolifa of jobs and freedom to make of yourself what you strive for. This will stop job growth from free sector by over taxation on rich, companies will leave our nation. In the end everyone will be reliant on government. Socialism!!!!!

    AOC is a batshit lunatic. A very dangerous one at that. She needs to go back to bartending like she was six months ago. Or be locked up in a rubber room at a mental facility where she cannot harm herself or others.

    The government’s job is not to create jobs. Aoc would bankrupt America and turn it into a socialist country. It’s hard to believe that aoc even got elected. She is nothing more than a socialist student to spread foolish socialist propaganda. Hopefully people are realizing how ridiculous her ides are. People like her would bring Venezuela style socialism. Which would be disastrous to America.

    The new green deal🤮. It only matters to the socialists, I mean democrats, to gain more control over the citizens. You can be sure that anything they do is for control/power.

    Visit cornwallalliance.org and see why the climate changes but it fluctuates like this normally. In reality, the progressive socialist left is using it to lull people into submission and then to gain power and control.

    It is imperative that we prioritize saving our planet. America must take charge in combating climate change. Investing money to combat climate change will save money in the long run.

    It was always your understanding that tax dollars were meant for the public good. The new deal of the 40’s used tax dollars to put Americans back to work and to provide them with much needed social services. I’m not sure how that became a bad idea. As a tax payers I would rather the majority of my money be used to help rather than to purchase things the nation may never need.

    I'm not sure how important the green New Deal is however I'm positive that man caused climate change is the hardest challenge Humanity has ever faced. I'll put it this way if the green New Deal fails it could mean the difference between the success or failure of our species or at least the end of our world as we know it. So yeah, I guess not that big of a deal...

    It matters only to the extent it helps people realize how the Democrats have been lying all along.

    This green new deal is nothing more than a way to force socialism on the american people. We can’t have cows because they fart so everyone has to become vegan. They want to tear down all buildings and decide where we will live. They want to support people not only the disable, but the people that just don’t want to work. They want to end air travel of which would put thousands upon thousands out of work. This green deal is about control hiding user the guise of global warming
