Tucker & Mark Steyn have a blast roasting AOC’s legislative failure

According to Fox News’ Tucker Carlson and Canadian author and cultural commentator Mark Steyn, the Green New Deal being introduced by Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez would eliminate “most forms of transportation and indeed cows.”

Ocasio-Cortez has been a veritable laughing stock among conservatives since she introduced it on Thursday. The title, “Recognizing the duty of the Federal Government to create a Green New Deal,” introduces drastic measures which the 29-year-old congresswoman thinks will save the planet.

“Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s document actually says that she is committed to ridding America of flatulent cows and airplanes,” Steyn told Carlson.

“The Europeans actually tried this, and they basically, the Irish were going to impose a tax of 13 euros per cow, and the Dames were going to impose a tax of 80 euros per cow … so in theory, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is on to something, that you could, as the Europeans considered, actually have a flatulence offset regime.

“Obviously, you’d need a secretary of flatulence in the cabinet that would actually … and Vermont, for example, …would be able to trade it’s flatulence to Washington D.C. where it could hang like a giant cloud over Congress.

“I’ve read this document in some detail,” Steyn went on, “I think there were a lot of interesting ideas in here.”

Among the other strikingly specific and odd additives to Ocasio-Cortez’s plan, The Free Beacon’s David Rutz pointed out that part of the deal is a guarantee of “economic security” for people “unwilling to work.”

Hill journalist Natalie Johnson highlighted the portions of the deal that she considered to be the most problematic, including converting to all eclectic vehicles, which would require the United States to “build charging stations everywhere.”

Along with the new charging stations, Ocasio-Cortez hopes to command Americans to “upgrade or replace every building in the US for state-of-the-art energy efficiency.”

“Even the solutions that we have considered big and bold are nowhere near the scale of the actual problem that climate change presents to us, to our country, to the world,” Ocasio-Cortez said in an interview on NPR on Thursday according to The Hill.

“This is really about providing justice for communities and just transitions for communities. So, really the heart of the Green New Deal is about social justice.”
