Burgers And Straws Aren’t The Problem
It doesn’t matter, though. The Green New Deal and plans like it aren’t about “saving the planet.” Most of the rambling manifesto is dedicated to a government takeover of our economy. One of the plan’s architects has even admitted the Green New Deal isn’t about the climate, it’s “a how-do-you-change-the-entire-economy thing.” In simpler terms, the Green New Deal isn’t about the environment at all; it’s about making America a socialist country.
Small business optimism is at its highest point in years. Impose an endless list of onerous regulations and new taxes and you can watch that optimism quickly turn to despair. While we all might get a good chuckle out of the notion that folks using plastic straws and eating hamburgers are “part of the problem,” radical proposals like the Green New Deal pose a real threat to our booming economy.
