The Green New Deal will play a role in our politics in 2020. A new bill before Congress shows a good example of how it will be implemented. We lay out what to watch for as the year progresses.
The reading list:
- The Markey-Cortez GND resolution. Only 14 double-spaced pages. Worth a read.
- The New Deal
- FDR on Socialism
- $150B in 2019
- We found $2T to fight in Iraq, from nowhere, so why not a GND?
- Cortez gives a 'concrete' example of the sorts of bills that make up the GND.
- The Hill reports on the Cortez bill
Because we recognize the necessity of personal accountability for our actions, because we accept responsibility for a building a durable future and because we believe it is our patriotic duty as citizens to speak out, we must insist the United States transform it’s energy sector, over the next decade, under a just and equitable plan, that uses regulations, investments and a price on carbon to safeguard our collective future.
Thanks for listening.
