    Disagreed. It's no different than what happened in history but without the government shooting down citizens.

    Why would it require Medicare for all?

    I can just imagine a meeting of the cows:

    "This is the ninety-eighth annual meeting of the Bovine Sisterhood today. Prior to any other business, please let me note that the committee has before it, at this moment, a resolution to phase out all cow farts by the year 2030. All who are in favor of this resolution should respond by saying "Moo!"

    Well, something like that, anyway...

    What she's proposing is really no different than what our politicians currently do, tax and inflate the currency to get what she wants.

    She’s not proposing anything we haven’t heard in the past. No one has ever tried to combine them all into one gigantic program. The left always used the incremental approach in the last. I’m guessing that the modern young leftist no longer has the attention span needed for that method.

    And no one still has tried to do so. It's nearly impossible for the reasons I'm mentioned.

    One positive aspect of the New Green Deal.

    I was going to sell my guns to the government but you wouldn’t believe what came up during the background check

    If this green new deal is enacted as it's currently described, why would anyone want to get a job?
