ICYMI: The Green New Deal Doesn’t Go Far Enough For Sharice Davids
“[Davids] says the Democratic-led House has held more than 70 hearings on climate change since she took office. One bill would set a nationwide standard to have a 100% clean energy economy by 2050. Another would have the U.S. rejoin the Paris climate accord. She doesn’t agree with the Green New Deal because as a resolution, it is nonbinding.”
“Sharice Davids thinks the damaging Green New Deal should carry the full force of law,” said Amanda Adkins for Congress spokesman Matthew Trail. “Davids’ radical proposals would destroy our economy and bankrupt our country.”
One study estimates the cost of the Green New Deal at between $52 trillion and $93 trillion just over the next decade. In addition to radical new regulations increasing costs on nearly every economic activity, it also mandates a government takeover of health care and a socialist “jobs guarantee,” among other radical proposals.
“In tough times, Kansas City families deserve experienced, pragmatic, commonsense leadership,” Trail added. “That’s clearly not Sharice Davids.”
