Seeking to score points among climate alarmists, Democratic candidate for president, Joe Biden, unveiled his climate change agenda. It makes AOC’s Green New Deal look like a walk in the park. Biden vows to sign sweeping orders on his first day in office, forcing his agenda onto the American people. The price tag for his “green” plan? You won’t be able to afford it.
Democrats love preaching about climate change. There’s a good reason why. It is the never-ending boogeyman that they can us to push their radical, socialist agenda.
Don’t be fooled, even “Joe Six-pack” once a middle-of-the-road Democrat, wants to burden the U.S. with massive government overreach, bloated spending, and heavy taxes. All trademarks of socialism.
Like the rest of the left, Biden is using the threat of climate change to seek his terrible goals. Climate change is meant to strike fear into the hearts of Americans—so we’ll vote away our futures.
The earth’s climate is changing? And it’s our fault!? Then we must elect men who will cripple our economy, pass heavy regulation, destroy jobs, and (conveniently) help other nations get richer and richer.
Climate change “solutions” always involve massive spending by the government, more taxes, painful regulation on every industry, and more jobs fleeing overseas. Not to mention, it forces us to buy energy from other nations, instead of generating it for ourselves.
Well, Joe just unveiled his climate change plan—and guess what? It’s just as bad as AOC’s.
Using the Green New Deal as a framework, the clear front-runner right now in the race for the 2020 Democratic presidential nomination announced he’s “calling for a Clean Energy Revolution to confront this crisis and do what America does best – solve big problems with big ideas.”
The price tag for the proposal — named ‘The Biden Plan for a Clean Energy Revolution & Environmental Justice’ — is $1.7 trillion over the next 10 years. Biden’s campaign said this would be supplemented by leveraging more than $5 trillion in additional private sector and state and local investments. This is considerably less expensive than the Green New Deal itself, for which cost estimates range as high as $93 trillion…

So, let’s break this down. In order to “fix” climate change (a concept not every agrees is either real or man-made), Joe Biden wants to spend over $6 trillion dollars—most of it taken from private companies.
He also plans on getting rid of Trump’s tax cuts—which has helped millions get jobs and earn higher pay.
Um… does this make any sense to you? In order to fix something most people doubt is even real, Biden wants to destroy our economic prosperity. But it gets worse. Biden has vowed to be even more intrusive and abusive of his power than Obama was.
[T]hey said that if elected president, on his first day in office Biden would sign a series of executive orders “with unprecedented reach that go well beyond the Obama-Biden Administration platform and put us on the right track.” [Source: Fox News]
Is Joe an idiot? Does he not realize that people voted for Trump because they were sick of Obama’s abuse of power? Now he’s promising to be even worse than Obama—from day one!
Never mind the fact that America has been leading the way on environmental responsibility since the 1970s. Never mind the fact that Obama’s environmental regulations forced companies to shift jobs overseas, crippled our energy independence, and put trillions of dollars in the hands of China and OPEC nations.
Biden’s plan would be even worse. We’d stop drilling for oil and mining for coal. Manufacturing jobs and office jobs would flee to other nations. The cost of food, energy, and basic necessities would go through the roof. Companies would shut their doors, crippled by the $6 trillion tax Biden puts on them.
But sure, it’ll “save” the environment. Good job, Joe.
