VIDEO: Students all about Ocasio-Cortez’s ‘Green New Deal’… then find out what’s in it

1645

Last week, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez unveiled her long-awaited “Green New Deal,” a plan aimed at drastically reducing carbon emissions in the next ten years.

The plan has already received the endorsements of Democrat presidential candidates, like Senators Cory Booker and Kamala Harris but, for others, it has turned heads for its drastic approach to fighting climate change. Among the proposals initially listed in the plan were moving away completely from oil, coal, and natural gas within ten years, creating a high-speed rail system to help eliminate air travel, and renovating every home in America.

But perhaps the most controversial point of all was a plan to provide “economic security” for those “unwilling to work.”

Ocasio-Cortez has since removed the document from her website that included such language as eliminating air travel or providing help to those “unwilling to work,” but archived data shows the initial post did, in fact, make such a statement. Ocasio-Cortez’s chief of staff said this was merely a draft and that it was published by accident.

Since its unveiling, the plan has garnered noticeable support from young Americans on social media.

Wanting to know if the same people who support the New Green Deal would still support it after hearing what was actually in it, Campus Reform‘s Cabot Phillips headed to the University of Miami to find out.

First, asking their original perception of the plan, students made clear that they were on board.

“I like that it’s progressive, that it’s gonna push the world forward,” one student said, while another added, “just from knowing who’s endorsed it and some other little things, it sounds great.”

One student had a more serious view of the plan, saying, “if we didn’t do that, we’re going to be killing ourselves.”

“I view it favorably,” another said, while one more added, “it’s definitely a great idea.”

However, after walking through the contents of the Green New Deal, their tune quickly shifted.

“It doesn’t sound like something I would be behind,” one student admitted after hearing the details of the plan. Another added, “sometimes you need to take extreme measures to save the environment, but I think this is too extreme.”

“I think that’s drastic…” the next student conceded.

  1. What kind of thinking are we teaching our children? It appears from these clips, that they don’t question much of AOC’s (borrowed from Agenda 21) proposal. It frightens me that their generation will be governing the USA in just a few years.

  2. An economics professor at a local college made a statement that he had never failed a single student before, but had recently failed an entire class. That class had insisted that Obama’s socialism worked and that no one would be poor and no one would be rich; a great equalizer.

    The professor then said, “OK, we will have an experiment in this class on Obama’s plan”. All grades will be averaged and everyone will receive the same grade so no one will fail and no one will receive an A (substituting grades for dollars – something closer to home and more readily understood by all).

    After the first test, the grades were averaged and everyone got a B. The students who studied hard were upset and the students who studied little were happy.

    As the second test rolled around, the students who studied little had studied even less and the ones who studied hard decided they wanted a free ride too so they studied little.

    The second test average was a D! No one was happy.

    When the third test rolled around, the average was an F.

    As the tests proceeded, the scores never increased as bickering, blame and name-calling all resulted in hard feelings and no one would study for the benefit of anyone else.

    To their great surprise, all failed and the professor told them that socialism would also ultimately fail because when the reward is great, the effort to succeed is great, but when government takes all the reward away, no one will try or want to succeed.

    It could not be any simpler than that.
    By the way CLIMATE CHANGE IS WEATHER and YOU can NOT do anything to change that!!
