Biden's $2T 'Climate Agenda'

Joe continues to be moved to the far left, as his party becomes ever more socialist.

On Tuesday, the Democrat Party, via its presidential nominee stand-in and teleprompter reader Joe Biden, revealed its $2 trillion “climate agenda” that is essentially a slimmed-down version of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s economically untenable “Green New Deal.” Back in May, Biden, in an obvious effort aimed at pandering to his party’s increasingly powerful radical left wing, tagged AOC to co-chair his campaign’s climate platform along with former Democrat presidential candidate John Kerry. The resulting fruit is rotten to the core.

Sounding every bit the part of a radical climate alarmist, Biden declared, “There is no more consequential challenge that we must meet in the next decade than the onrushing climate crisis. Left unchecked, it is literally an existential threat to the health of our planet and to our very survival.”

The $2 trillion price tag exceeds Biden’s previous $1.7 trillion climate plan, and he claims the change is due to simply being “more ambitious.” The reality is more likely that his handlers decided he needed to show more deference to climate activists. The New York Post reports, “Biden’s announcement comes as the presidential wannabe courts idols on the left of his party including Bronx-Queens Congresswoman Ocasio-Cortez and Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) in the hope that they will support him and steer young voters his way in November.”

Biden is also attempting to tout the supposed economic “benefits” of his climate agenda, falsely insisting that his plan would create millions of new jobs, especially for union workers, as the U.S. transforms into a “carbon pollution-free electric sector by the year 2025.” This is a clear attempt to counter President Donald Trump’s infrastructure plan, while also deflecting the means by which Biden would “pay” for his plan: massive tax hikes.

His campaign noted that the plan would be paid for using “a mix of tax increases on corporations and the wealthy and stimulus spending, likely related to the coronavirus pandemic.” Yet Biden has already promised to roll back Republican tax cuts that benefit more than 80% of middle-class taxpayers. So, on the day before taxes are due, Biden proposes yet more massive spending that will demand even more milking of American taxpayers.
