Alexandria Ocasio Cortez’s ‘Green New Deal’ is a breathtaking…ly terrible economic and social policy, and Chellie Pingree is an early adopter of this headfirst dive into the socialist abyss.
Rep. Jared Golden has been mum so far, but he’s going to have to take a position eventually, and he could follow Pingree’s lead to satisfy his left-wing donor base and supporters.
– The end of gasoline powered automobiles in 10 years (because, you know, all Mainers can afford to go buy an electric car)
– Economic security for all Americans unwilling to work (we think Maine tried this already, didn’t work out so well!)
– End production of electricity via fossil fuels and nuclear power (just imagine how much fun it’s going to be to wait for your electric car to charge while trying to keep your house warm with wind and solar on a cold January night in Maine)
– A possible federal carbon tax (apparently the carbon tax Democrats are proposing in Maine isn’t enough, so we will get the tax at both the federal and state levels)
– Gut and retrofit every building in America with whatever technology the left sees fit to force upon us. (We’re guessing there will be an arms race among left-wing donors on this one)
