(WatchDogReport.org) – Progressives are once again trying to shove the Green New Deal down the throats of the American people. On April 20, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) and Senator Ed Markey (D-MA) reintroduced the climate change resolution and Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) was not happy to see them pushing for it again.
During an interview with Fox News, Paul slammed the Green New Deal’s provisions. One of them, which creates the Climate Corp Youths, was particularly alarming to the senator who expressed concern that youngsters would be spreading propaganda. He also pointed out that the US can’t afford to pay for the resolution, but mocked the name saying maybe “green” stood for the money tree they were going to pluck money from to pay for it.
Paul warned that the Green New Deal would be a “financial drain” on the country if it’s passed. Of course, judging by all the money Democrats have already spent, it doesn’t seem as though they’re very concerned.
