Al Gore Endorses “Green New Deal” Even Though He Has No Idea What’s In It
The media in Washington D.C. won’t stop talking about the “green new deal” – an environmentalist and socialist manifesto from far-left incoming Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.
Last month we told you how her “green new deal” is largely a laundry list of radical, socialist policies. Ocasio-Cortez proposes vague ideas like “decarbonizing” the manufacturing and agricultural industries. Under the guise of “environmental justice and equality,” she also proposes massive new spending initiatives like a Bernie Sanders style-universal healthcare system and a basic income program.
Ocasio-Cortez refuses to detail a way to pay for any of this.
This manifesto includes a lot of scary, expensive stuff – but as of this morning, Al Gore is endorsing it anyway, even though he claims to have no idea what it really is. Gore told Axios that he is “on board” with the “green new deal.”
Axios reporter Amy Harder explains, “When I said there aren’t many details of the policy, Gore responded: ‘I don’t know what the details are either.’”
Either Al Gore is going around endorsing manifestos he’s never read, or he likes the radical policies Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is proposing and is playing naive.
Whatever the case, Al Gore is again proving why no one trusts a word he says.
