Green New Deal called national security threat, “destructive”


Democratic Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s Green New Deal, a stimulus idea aimed at fighting climate change and inequality, is being supported by progressives, but is being slammed as “irresponsible” and economy-killing by many Republicans, including Florida Congressman Mario Diaz-Balart.

Diaz-Balart tore into Ocasio-Cortez’s economic plan by saying that how it reads, the proposal is “about destroying the economy” and would “eliminate, in essence, all sources of energy.”

Whether its oil or national gas, any impartial person will tell you that it would be destructive to the United States…You can kiss manufacturing goodbye.”
