Cory Booker compares Green New Deal to going to the moon, defeating Nazis | Adam Shaw- -Fox News
“Sen. Cory Booker, D-N.J., defended his support of the controversial “Green New Deal” on Friday, by comparing the government-led push to overhaul the nation’s economy and energy sector to landing on the moon and defeating the Nazis in World War II.
“There’s a lot of people now going back on the Green New Deal, they’re like ‘oh it’s impractical, oh it’s too expensive, oh it’s all of this,'” he said at a stop in Mason City, Iowa. “If we used to govern our dreams that way, we would have never gone to the Moon. ‘God, that’s impractical. See that ball in the sky? That’s impractical.'”
“We are a nation that has done impossible things before and my parents taught me: ‘Reach for the moon, reach for the stars. Even if you come up short, at least you’re going to be hovering above the ground, you’ll be soaring young man. So we need to be bold again in America. We need to have dreams that other people say are impossible.”
Another far Left Democrat, on some kind delusional excursion, comparing ‘deal’s’ to defeating the Nazi’s!
Would these lawmakers who insist on invoking Hitler, the Nazi’s, keep doing it, if they had family, relatives, who fled, or who were burned alive during this time? Nothing they talk about doing, can/should be compared to this time in history, where over 6 million Jews perished for an ideology so sick and twisted that it stained history so completely!
A deal so pathetic and unrealistic, it would bankrupt America and most likely cause a civil war!
The Obamacare experiment, where those who didn’t have, get a free ride, or subsidized to the tune of a very low cost, proved to be a totally flawed law, with prices skyrocketing and premiums hitting levels never seen before.
These plans to give away free money for sitting on your asses and doing nothing has long passed, it didn’t work! Free College, healthcare, with price tags so high, not one of these so-called “New Green Deal” candidates, have any clue except, taxing the wealthy, how they would pay for such lofty goals!
According to these impaired thinking politicians, we would have no more cows for milk, cheese or meat. Why, because under the “New Green Deal”, methane gas would be outlawed.
No more cars. And thinking electric, is energy efficient and all cars should be made that way, would be better served to go back to the science lab and see that the fossil fuels needed for charging stations and running these cars don’t stack up to their so-called “deal”. These ignorant lawmakers who spew these ridiculous plans, with no plans for paying for them or how they would work, obviously don’t know a thing about energy! Electric cars aren’t the be all, end all for a perfect solution. If cars are running on electricity produced by burning dirty fossil fuels, climate benefits are limited. Because of the very complex batteries they use, it currently takes more energy to produce an electric car than a conventional one.
Democrats would be better served throwing out ideas on how to fix immigration, healthcare, reigning in government spending, size and making sure social security and medicare are doing something about the hundreds of billions of fraudulent payments, wasteful spending each year, that has plagued these programs for decades!
Haven’t our politicians noticed, Americans are fed up with having our problems ignored, kicked down the road for another day, they elected Trump.
So far, if you believe any polls or pundits, there is not one person, who has entered the 2020 race on the Democrat side that can beat Trump at this time.
Funny, how in 2016, the Democrats and main stream media were making fun of the GOP, as they had so many possible contenders running for President. They called it the circus, clown cars. Seems, the Left, think that’s a winning strategy, they are copying their play book step by step.
One thing is for sure, it is going to be a LONG election season!
