Looks like some Union people are all worked up about U.S. Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortz'z Green New Deal.

Somebody from the United Mine Workers says it's a lofty deal !!

Somebody else said the "Transitions" might be unmanageable 😃

I would also think unions might be afraid of trying to organize the ranks of the unemployed 😃



Union leaders warn Green New Deal may lead to poverty: 'Members are worried about putting food on the table'

Labor unions are warning that the "Green New Deal" proposed by Democratic New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is vague and potentially dangerous, signaling that the progressive proposal may be in for even more turbulence following a rocky rollout last week.

While conservatives have fiercely criticized the Green New Deal resolution for promising a job to "all people of the United States" -- including those "unwilling to work," according to an accompanying document published, and later disavowed, by Ocasio-Cortez's office -- the pushback from union leaders indicates that the progressive proposal has not won over a core element of the liberal base.


Speaking to Reuters, a spokesman for the coal industry union United Mine Workers (UMWA) characterized Ocasio-Cortez's goals as lofty and potentially dangerous to rank-and-file blue collar workers.

The deal does nothing to benefit society or people. It is just a power grab by Globalist elite. Of course it will cause poverty. That is the intention.

The Socialist Green Dream is just a wet dream except they are shooting blanks.
The standard response for anyone with half a brain when asked about it should be...”Next question”

So they have come to the logical conclusion that if you take everyone's money and the economy collapses then there won't be any Union workers left to collect dues from.

~shocked look~

Occasional Kotex should have a town hall meeting with the teamsters and some airline pilot union reps to explain to them how their semi's and airplanes will function without fossil fuels.

Should be an interesting meeting..

Might as well throw in all oil company employees and anyone in the petrochemical field.

Oh, maybe that's her angle-
Could it be she's actually smart, and saw her only easy out in the coming financial apocalypse?

Obviously she can't hold her own in a fight, and I'd decades late to a proper bugout plan... So instead play lap dog to her chosen masters in hopes they'll be kind to her in the post societal wastes.
Jokes on her in that case, her chosen party would trade her to the frog men for a small favor when the time came...

Now now....

Since we would spend our whole GDP on the project anyways, why would it matter if we took away 20% of it or so at the same time?

The math doesn't matter!!!

It's for the planet!!!

The US is not the worse offender in polluting the earth, if you can’t get the world on board it’s futile.

The real problem in the world is overpopulation.

The easiest way to become a target is to become dependent on other countries!

I'm assuming since according to AOC this is WW3 for us that we would of course be nuking China and India to stop their greenhouse gas emissions.

It's only logical... and for the planet to heal!!!

The fact anyone heading a union actually thinks it is a possibility such a deal could pass tells you they are an idiot.

Seriously are there really people out there that believe we can pay for 10% of this plan even if we wanted to? I mean REALLY??

Are people really that stupid? The plan as stated would cost like 100 trillion dollars - That is more money than currently EXISTS on the entire planet.

And no before anyone suggests it - just printing more money would accomplish nothing. Money is backed up by a nations productivity of workers it's ability to tax it and it's natural resources. Creating more money changes none of that it, it just makes everything cost the same percentage more as you increase the money supply.

You joke about this - but seriously, just releasing a virus and killing large portions of the population would truthfully be far more effective and realistic then her plan.
