It Is Easy to Tell House Leaders Don’t Really Support the Green New Deal

The unveiling of the “Green New Deal” has enough signs to signal that the House Democrat leaders view their Progressive Caucus with possibly more contempt than the House Republicans view the Freedom Caucus. Neither party unveils anything like this if it is going to be considered a signature issue.

The outline that ties to the resolution is riddled with typographical errors, grammatical errors, and weird omissions. It puts in language about cow farts and suggests the government will impose vegetarianism on the nation. It wants nationwide rail to eliminate nationwide air travel. The Hawaii delegation won’t be down for that one. It calls for the elimination or renovation of every single building in the United States. It goes to great lengths to avoid any discussion of costs.

Sympathetic reporters will call it “ambitious,” but it is actually the farcical document of zealots. It will be used by the GOP to scare the public about costs and the Democrats’ ambitions. It will be used by business interests to extract concessions from House leaders.

Simply put, there is no way in hell Nancy Pelosi would let this go forward as a signature Democrat initiative in its present form because she knows the political ramifications of it. That and the shoddy work product suggest there is far more opposition to this than is advertised among Democrats. Likewise, Pelosi’s public comments suggest this will wind up being scaled back dramatically.

Unfortunately for the Democrats, this is clearly the work product of zealots and scaling it back or redirecting it could cause a serious rebellion among that party’s progressive members.
