Buttigieg: Green New Deal resolution 'the right beginning'

‘Brilliant!’ Trump supports Democrats’ Green Dream to ‘eliminate all planes, cars, cows & military’ Dem Sen. Murphy: Green New Deal Comparable to Moon Landing

Democratic presidential contender Pete Buttigieg on Sunday endorsed a Green New Deal, saying the blueprint needs fine-turning but provides a framework for addressing climate change and revamping the Rust Belt economy.

During her appearance on the NPR podcast a couple of days back, Democrat Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez outlined her stance in regards to her monetary policy and how she plans to restructure the social/economic framework of the USA if her freshly proposed "Green New Deal" is passed by the senate. After suggesting that conservatives were somehow to blame, her team now says we should all forget about the document because it was just an "early draft" that they accidentally posted and distributed to major news outlets.

"I think it's the right beginning", Buttigieg said of the resolution on CNN's "State of the Union" with Jake Tapper.

Wanting to know if the same people who support the New Green Deal would still support it after hearing what was actually in it, Campus Reform's Cabot Phillips headed to the University of Miami to find out.

"It's definitely a great idea".

One student's initial perception of the deal was that it was "progressive" and would help "push the world forward".

Mickelson was standing on the 17th tee when he heard the horn sound to stop play, and he shook his head. Casey finished with a birdie that was worth $152,000 because he wound up alone in second place.

When he told students what, exactly, was in the deal, responses changed. Another added, "sometimes you need to take extreme measures to save the environment, but I think this is too extreme". "I think it'd be great for us!" exclaimed one.

"If we didn't do that, we'd be killing ourselves basically".

Originally conceived in the mid to late 2000s by journalists such as Thomas Friedman of The New York Times and advocated by political organizations such as the Green Party and the Sunrise Movement, the Green New Deal includes a transition towards 100% renewable energy by 2030, upgrading towards energy efficient infrastructure, expanding public transportation, and guaranteed job program with a higher wage and better benefits through increased federal investments.

"I have a 10-year-old and a seven-year-old", he continued.

Some of the strongest responses came to Ocasio-Cortez's team's goal laid out in the since-deleted FAQ of giving every American "economic security" even if they are "unable or unwilling to work".
