Bernie Sanders: $16 Trillion ‘Green New Deal’ Plan Will ‘Pay for Itself’ Blah Blah Blah

Epoch Times: Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), a self-described socialist who is vying for the Democratic presidential nomination, released a “Green New Deal” plan that his campaign estimates will cost $16 trillion.

Sanders, who was runner-up to Hillary Clinton in 2016, says that the United States “must act immediately” to combat “the climate crisis,” calling it “the single greatest challenge facing our country.”

“Climate change is a global emergency. The Amazon rainforest is burning, Greenland’s ice shelf is melting, and the Arctic is on fire. People across the country and the world are already experiencing the deadly consequences of our climate crisis, as extreme weather events like heat waves, wildfires, droughts, floods, and hurricanes upend entire communities, ecosystems, economies, and ways of life, as well as endanger millions of lives,” he said on his campaign website.

“Communities of color, working-class people, and the global poor have borne and will bear this burden disproportionately.”

“The scientific community is telling us in no uncertain terms that we have less than 11 years left to transform our energy system away from fossil fuels to energy efficiency and sustainable energy, if we are going to leave this planet healthy and habitable for ourselves, our children, grandchildren, and future generations,” he added. more here

  1. Pays for itself is the sales technique of every door to door cookware salesman.

    The home security system that’s “free” but we run your credit and make you sign a 3 year, $30 a month contract “pays for itself”.

    The electrostatic air filter for your HVAC that costs more than 20 years of regular air filters “pays for itself”. Note: your HVAC won’t last 20 years.

    I’d like to hear from people the things they bought that actually did pay for themselves.

    I bought a car battery charger that paid for itself because it was less than half of a tow charge I would have paid. But it didn’t cost $16,000,000,000,000.00.

    I saw some statistic that said 1 million seconds is 11.5 days. But 1 billion seconds is 31.7 years.

    1 trillion seconds is like 31,709 years.

    These communists who are tightfisted with their own money, like Sanders staffers running to press when he wouldn’t pay them 15 an hour, or his wife defrauding her university – a billion, a trillion? What’s the difference?

    It’s a lot. And the interest on $16,000,000,000,000.00 would make a donkey choke. At 3% it’s like $480 billion dollars a year. That’s the “deal” interest and not the whole government.

    These are people who do not pay their loans back because they have no character. As I recall, the government nationalizing student loan debt was going to be a moneymaker too and now they’re floating debt forgiveness as a vote buying scheme.

  2. I’m surprised he didn’t say it would make a profit. Oh wait, socialists don’t believe in profit. Except for themselves.

  5. Yo, Bernie!

    As an American, you are free to pay for whatever stupid shit you believe without involving me. So do it! Gather the money from your cronies and fellow travellers, and Have At It! The government has NO AUTHORITY to satisfy your mental delusions – PERIOD. Look it up. Show me where, in our Constitution, the Federal Gov’t has any authority to take MY money to satisfy your delusion? The Globaloney Warming Hoax does NOT confer upon you or your greedy cohorts unlimited access to my wallet.

    Simply put: I have not agreed to your dictatorship – and I never will – regardless how many drooling, nose-picking, fart-cupping retards you can gather.
    Got it?

    izlamo delenda est …

  6. Isn’t that what every ponzi/pyramid scheme tries to sell?
    How’s Social Security, Medicare, Obamacare working out for you?
    One thing you can rely on gov.: fucking up whatever it is so thoroughly that there’s never any going back.
