They had a vote in the U.S. Senate and the result was 57 – 0 as the Republicans declared that the crazy, radical, unworkable Green New Deal was dead in the water! Apparently its supporters didn’t get that message. The Green New Deal is currently, stealthily, creeping across America.

First, let’s review what the Green New Deal actually calls for. According to a report by the Green Party US, a major proponent, the plan is a “four part program for moving America quickly out of crisis into a secure, sustainable future.” Thus, according to the Green Party, the Four Pillars of the Green New Deal include;

1. The Economic Bill of Rights, Consists of the “right to full employment and ending unemployment by guaranteeing a job at a living wage in a safe workplace, empowered by labor unions; single-payer Medicare for all, tuition-free education from pre-school to college and the right to affordable housing. This last part comes with the creation of a federal bank that will solve distressed mortgages (through taxes, of course), and expand public housing. Payment of those taxes will be distributed in proportion to ability to pay.

2. A Green Transition, Here’s where the tax money really ramps up to pay for investment in green business through grants and low-interest loans. The GND even determines how any money made in this investment is to be spent and into whose pocket any new wealth goes as it says the money will not go into the pockets of rich, absentee investors. So, goodbye stock market. Of course, the plan calls for redirecting investment into wind and solar, away from fossil fuels, enforce sustainable agriculture and forestry. Of course, there will be full employment for green jobs, mass transit, bikeways and pedestrian traffic rather than cars, and “regional food systems.” That means no need for shipping goods by truck or air…….
