Does everybody just love parroting Trump? Is that what SoH is boiling down to?

Statement from AOC's office: "We set a goal to get to net-zero, rather than zero emissions, in 10 years because we aren't sure that we'll be able to fully get rid of farting cows and airplanes that fast."

Farting cows? People are upset over a clear joke? Is everyone on the right a snowflake now?

Trump: ' "You're not allowed to own cows anymore." He added that the plan would "shut down American energy" and "a little thing called air travel." '

Facts: The Democratic plan would do none of those things. Trump chose to ignore the actual provisions of the plan, which calls for a drastic drop in greenhouse-gas emissions from fossil fuels such as oil, coal and natural gas but would not ban methane-emitting cows or air travel.

That came from Cortez’s own mouth in an interview... but they are trying to point out her irrational way of thinking before she gets too popular. She is kind of using similar tactics as Trump where she tries to get the media’s attention... But it’s false to say the right has become snowflakes... Conservatives are doing the same exact thing liberals did to Trump now and during his campaign probably at lesser intensity and this cycle is called politics.

"Irrational way of thinking," except for the part that a huge majority of Americans in both parties are supporting ideas that she is now expressing and representing. Healthcare, education, the environment - are you gonna tell me that the polls and the voters are wrong too? Trump intentionally bullsh*tted everyone to hype up the media and his base. Ocasio-Cortez is hyping up her base (progressives) and even republican voters who are tired of getting screwed. The media is unintentionally giving her coverage - same outcome as Trump but just a different method. So, the huge amount of real American voters that want to support ideas like this - they're all irrational and crazy too?

They are misinformed because they aren’t given the consequences that comes with what she wants: Government-run Healthcare which will cost trillions not to mention if she makes private-insurers give up their healthcare... 80-90% don’t want a bill that takes away their private healthcare... Now climate change, many republicans actually believe in climate change, but not in the way Cortez thinks... If you can name me one Republican who would want to ban planes and their own car for a greener US while economical competition like China and Russia are producing the majority of it... Why should we ruin our economy while other countries don’t give a shit... And stats have proven that climate change will not affect us until Hundreds of years from now... But I agree with slow gradual transition to greener energy, but you can’t just totally abolish it... It has to take generations.

Don’t love or hate. I support many goals and the investment in green tech industry, but I don’t like the package and disapprove of half-baked legislation not having specific budget appropriations.

I don’t hate it but it’s a little over the top. We need to start doing more about climate!

Anyone that loves it either doesn’t know anything about it, was tricked by AOC and staffs blatant lies, or is a straight communist

Anti American and anti constitution. The rest is just ridiculous virtue signaling.

It’s not feasible. It’s a nice wish list but nothing more

Do you support every home and business that currently use NG or oil for heat and hot water to replace their systems?
