Disgraced Former Rep. Justin Amash Forms Alliance with AOC, Says ‘Libertarians and Progressives Can Be Great Allies’
Disgraced former Congressman Justin Amash of Michigan has formed an alliance with Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) and is hosting events with the far-left ‘Squad’ member.
He proclaimed that “libertarians and progressives can be great allies” in a social media post thanking Ocasio-Cortez for addressing students at the University of Chicago on Thursday.
The tweet can be seen here:
Ocasio-Cortez is pushing one of the most dangerous agendas in legislative history that would totally decimate what is left of libertarian and conservative values in America. Amash is helping her goals forward by giving her a captive audience of indoctrinated students to work over with her socialist rhetoric.
Big League Politics has reported on Ocasio-Cortez’s ambitions to destroy capitalism, impoverish billions, and create the most ghastly totalitarianism the world has ever known:
“In the latest display of liberal, faith-based eco-fanaticism, newly-elected U.S. Rep. Ocasio-Cortez is attempting to force a “green ‘new deal’” on the American people, according to reports.
Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s “new deal” is a very expensive deal. It is, in fact, fiscally impossible without expanding U.S. GDP (total wealth created by American people in a single year) by four times its current size, according to Douglas Holtz-Eakin, former director of the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office (CBO) from from 2003 to 2005.
Holtz-Eakin is now head of the right-of-center think tank “American Action Forum,” which released the report.
In fact, current unfunded federal liabilities owed to the rest of the world, i.e. America’s creditors — the countries who own U.S. treasuries and to whom America must pay annual interest in order to even turn the lights on and pump clean water into our communities — exceed $80 trillion (four times world GDP).
When such figures are taken into account, it’s not difficult to understand how some in Congress and the public may identify mathematical deficiencies in Cortez’s ambitious “green” agenda.
The so-called “Green ‘New Deal’” may tally between $51 trillion and $93 trillion over 10-years, concludes American Action Forum.
“The Green New Deal is clearly very expensive,” the group said in its analysis. “It’s further expansion of the federal government’s role in some of the most basic decisions of daily life, however, would likely have a more lasting and damaging impact than its enormous price tag.”
“That includes between $8.3 trillion and $12.3 trillion to meet the plan’s call to eliminate carbon emissions from the power and transportation sectors and between $42.8 trillion and $8.6 trillion for its economic agenda including providing jobs and health care for all,” reports Bloomberg.
Cortez’s “green” agenda is nothing more than the latest manifestation of “Watermelon Marxism” — green on the outside, but red on the inside.“
Amash does not seem to understand American values, and his game of footsie with AOC demonstrates that clearly.
