New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has finally revealed her grand scheme to regulate cow farts.
The part of her Green new Deal that was ridiculed the most has now been explained by the 29-year-old.
But the thing is, the idea and the reasoning behind it is still ridiculous.
The explanation was made on the premiere of Showtime’s “Desus & Mero,” The New York Post reported.
According to an initial outline of the measure, the freshman Democrat and Sen. Edward Markey (D-Mass.) said they “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.”
The language was later changed to “emissions from cows.”
On Thursday night, comedy duo Desus Nice and The Kid Mero asked Ocasio-Cortez why she thought the initial reaction to the Green New Deal focused on bovine exhaust.
“In the deal, what we talk about, and it’s true, is that we need to take a look at factory farming, you know? Period. It’s wild,” she said.
“And so it’s not to say you get rid of agriculture, it’s not to say we’re gonna force everybody to go vegan or anything crazy like that,” Ocasio-Cortez said.
“But it’s to say, ‘Listen, we gotta address factory farming. Maybe we shouldn’t be eating a hamburger for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Like, let’s keep it real,’” she said.
“But we have to take a look at everything,” she said. “and what we need to realize about climate change is about every choice that we make in our lives, you know?”
She also defended her tax idea for the ultra rich that would tax them 70 percent for income above $10 million.
“It really comes down to the question of, ‘Isn’t $10 million enough?’ Like, when does it stop?” ocasio-Cortez said.
“At what point is it amoral that we’re building Jeff Bezos a helipad when we have the most amount of homeless people in New York City?” she said.
This is the issue with socialists. They believe they get to decide what others are allowed to earn.
Yes it would be nice if rich people donated more and did everything in their power to help those less fortunate.
But that is their decision to make with their cash. It is not for government to rob them and redistribute.
