Elder Patriot – The Green New Deal would be more accurately named the Green New Steal.
A joint study conducted by the Competitive Enterprise Institute (CEI) and Power the Future, released on Monday, looked at a wide swath of data to estimate the costs of the Green New Deal to an average household in 5 swing states.m 1
The states that were the subject of the study are Alaska, Florida, New Hampshire, New Mexico, and Pennsylvavia.
As you read this, keep in mind that the median household income is estimated to be somewhere north of $63,000 annually.
Within the first year of implementation, the average household in each of the five states studied would incur at least $70,000 in expenses!!!
But it gets better from there, right? Afterall, Democrats tell us this is an investment in our future. Not!
The costs for years 2 through 5 are estimated to be roughly $45,000 annually. That’s more than a quarter million dollars in the first five years.
Okay, but it gets better after the first five years, right? The answer is slightly. Ongoing costs after year five were estimated to be $37,000 annually. Even that amount is in excess of 58% of the average household’s income.
The Green New Deal would essentially wipe out the middle class. But then, that’s the reason every Democratic/Socialist running for the presidency has endorsed it.
The real goal of the Green New Deal is to impose a series of radical, socialistic programs—policies that would dramatically increase the size and power of the federal government, essentially turning the U.S. into a socialist nation.
Consider how Democrats rallied around Rep. Elijah Cummings to defend the indefensible – rat-infested Baltimore. Cummings has represented Baltimore in the U.S. Congress for 23 years and the people he represents deserve better.
Don’t take my word for it. More than one-third of Baltimore’s residents, those who could afford it, have moved out of Baltimore largely because of high crime and failing schools. Thirty percent of schools in Baltimore don’t have a single student competent in math. Not a single student!
And while Cummings vigorously speaks on behalf of central American asylum seekers, Baltimore’s murder rate exceeds the murder rate of the countries they’re fleeing.
Again we ask, why would Democrats defend this shithole rather than use President Trump’s criticism to spark a discussion about how to remedy the situation?
This is Baltimore… Not Guatlemala
The answer to that question is that neither Cummings’ defenders, nor Cummings himself, would be able to withstand the next series of questions; how much money has already been earmarked to Baltimore and where the eff did it go?
The fact that Dems won’t condemn Baltimore’s miserable living conditions can only mean they find the conditions acceptable and they want you to as well. This is the essence of socialism. Shar
Fox News has reported on a new study that examined the costs of the Green New Deal. It should be more aptly naed misery.
According to an article from April 19, 2019, that appeared in the New York Post, new annual estimates from the US Census Bureau show that Baltimore is continuing to shed inhabitants, bringing the overall population of Maryland’s biggest city down to what it was over 100 years ago.
Baltimore has been hemorrhaging residents for a long time. In 1950, it was America’s sixth most populous city, a manufacturing dynamo with nearly a million residents…
Baltimore has been under Democratic Party control since then. Not a single Republican has been elected to either city-wide office in Baltimore or to the U.S. House of Representatives since the 1940’s.
Baltimore went from being America’s sixth most populous city to number 30 today. The people are speaking with their feet. If Democrats have their way with the rest of the country, there will be nowhere left to run.
