    At this point, 2 years into the term, I do not care about the tax returns. I care about job performance and results. If job retention in Congress were strictly based on those criteria there would be a lot of terminations. Representative Ocasio-Cortez should be commended for launching a political career at such a young age but, at this point, she doesn’t know what she doesn’t know. You cannot throw out an idea like the “Green New Deal” without the facts about costs, impacts, and expected results. Private industry and innovation can take us in the directions we want to go. We should focus on key areas and invite representatives of different industries to present products and ideas that could push us in better directions. For example, in residential construction we continue to use asphalt shingle as the primary product for roofing. It is a petroleum based product that is energy inefficient, lasts on 15-20 years, and ends up in a landfill. Go with metal roofing products and you get the opposite. Not to mention that you would help the industries that the 232 tariffs were trying to protect. This is a common sense idea. Start with ideas that are realistic and make sense.
