Biden’s latest move to the far-left will decimate American energy, costs taxpayers trillions, and destroy jobs.
Joe Biden emerged from his basement hideout today to make good on his pledge to kneel at the altar of the radical Leftists now running the DNC who have allowed him to be their Democratic presidential nominee.
The price for admission into their Marxist cancel culture club is steep: trillions of taxpayer dollars, millions of losses of good-paying blue-collar jobs, and giving away our hard-earned energy independence.
In true cellar-dweller fashion, Joe Biden proposed an energy plan to placate AOC, The Squad, and the Bernie Bros. all in one fell swoop.
Biden is proposing eliminating oil, gas, and coal from the U.S. power grid by 2035.
Yep, you read it right! No energy for you! Get a bike and a hamster.
- Biden says he would spend a staggering $2 trillion in four years on this and other pet causes, but he’s actually hiding the real costs to upend the U.S. energy system
- Prior estimates show eliminating oil, gas, and coal from the U.S. energy grid would cost trillions
- A Wood Mackenzie study found it would cost $4.5 trillion to enact such a plan, with a $35,000 per household cost
- The non-partisan American Action Forum estimated it would cost $5.7 trillion
Biden has now endorsed the George Soros far-Left climate change positions of Elizabeth Warren, AOC, Bernie Sanders, and Jay Inslee.
“Biden’s new proposals bring him closer to the positions of his more progressive former primary opponents, including Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren and Washington Governor Jay Inslee, whose campaign focused on climate change. Inslee had proposed a 100% clean electricity standard by 2035 that Warren later endorsed. A task force of allies of Biden and Senator Bernie Sanders offered a similar idea last week, recommending that Democrats commit to eliminating carbon pollution from power plants by 2035.” (Jennifer Epstein, Ari Natter, and Jennifer A. Dlouhy, “Biden To Call For $2 Trillion In Spending On Clean Energy, Bloomberg 7/13/20)
A National Bureau of Economic Research study found that the net cost of reducing greenhouse gas emissions by just 80 percent would cost up to $4 trillion, with up to $6 trillion in required investment.
More stunning In December 2019, Biden Said “Yes” when asked if he would be willing to “sacrifice” economic growth and “hundreds of thousands of blue-collar jobs” to transition to a “greener economy.”
Here is the transcript:
TIM ALBERTA: “Vice President Biden, I’d like to ask you. Three consecutive American presidents have enjoyed stints of explosive economic growth due to a boom in oil and natural gas production. As president, would you be willing to sacrifice some of that growth, even knowing potentially that it could displace thousands, maybe hundreds of thousands of blue-collar workers in the interest of transitioning to that greener economy?”
JOE BIDEN: “The answer is yes. The answer is yes, because the opportunity — the opportunity for those workers to transition to high-paying jobs, as Tom said, is real. We’re the only country in the world that’s ever taken great, great crises and turned them into enormous opportunities.” (Joe Biden, Remarks At A Democratic Presidential Primary Debate, Los Angeles, CA, 12/20/19)
So, I guess Biden thinks you should be a Walmart greeter.
Considering he has never held a real job in his entire life, it’s not entirely his fault. What does he know about getting another job?
Let them (blue-collar energy workers) eat cake.
