Rep. Liz Cheney Goes On 'Hooey' Rant About The Green New Deal

Source: Huffington Post

Rep. Liz Cheney of Wyoming, the third-ranking House Republican, falsely claimed Tuesday that the Green New Deal seeks to “outlaw” airplanes, cars, gasoline and “probably the entire U.S. military.”

Cheney’s comments, which came during a congressional hearing on climate change, parroted a tweet that President Donald Trump posted last week....To be clear, the Green New Deal says nothing about eliminating airplanes, cars or the military. Instead, the non-binding resolution ― introduced last week by Ocasio-Cortez and Sen. Ed Markey (D-Mass.) ― outlines lofty goals of reaching net-zero emissions by 2050, building climate-resilient infrastructure and reversing income inequality by creating high-wage green jobs.

Rep. Jared Huffman (D-Calif.), one of nearly 80 co-sponsors of the resolution, said Cheney’s line of questioning was “based on absolute hooey” and that no supporter wants to ban air travel.

“That’s absolutely crazy,” Huffman said.

1. This is an example of why this country cant EVER completely and fully recover from the stolen

2016 presidential election orchestrated by the KGB and GOP.

Republicans now have a new normal from which to spew their hate and lies and that new line of normal will surely destroy our balance that was always teetering due to the cons but we had it, I dont see how we get it back, ever.

To support rump you support murder, fascism and the end of democracy.

14. THIS! And they are getting conspicuously crazier as a result. If we do this long enough --

and let's hope we do -- they will implode under the weight of their own insanity.

17. Yet a poll taken just a month ago actually shows that most Republicans support...

...the contents of the Green New Deal, but only if you don't tell them the Democrats are leading the way to planetary survival.

They would give up the planet for a short-term "win".... makes one wonder if the solution to dealing with the losing third of America is finding alternative ways for them to have success disassociated from Republican hucksterism.

15. The GOP found that this kind of talk worked with Obamacare

Remember the death panels that they got their followers so whipped up on? It's the same concept, they know their base loves crazy government conspiracy theories so they love spoon feeding them. It's sad how easy it is really.

Liz Cheney calls for House vote on Ocasio-Cortez’s Green New Deal

BY TIMOTHY CAMA - 02/13/19 12:49 PM EST

The No. 3 Republican in the House is calling on Democratic leaders to hold a vote on the Green New Deal, an aggressive plan to fight climate change.

Rep. Liz Cheney (Wyo.), chairwoman of the House Republican Conference, said a vote would help the American people learn where lawmakers stand on the non-binding resolution that she and others have painted as a socialist plan that would ruin the economy.

“We think Democrats need to be held accountable,” Cheney told reporters Wednesday. “If they support this as they say they do, and as their presidential candidates do, then let’s have a vote on it and see to what extent they’re all going to get behind moving towards this kind of fantasy.”

Cheney, whose state is the nation's top coal producer, said the Democrats backing the proposal “have said they would attempt to eliminate all planes, all air travel, within a decade. The results would be the elimination also of gasoline, the elimination of cars as we know them now.”

The resolution, introduced last week by Ocasio-Cortez and Sen. Ed Markey (D-Mass.), calls for a quick, 10-year plan to reach net-zero greenhouse gas emissions in the United States, through an aggressive increase in renewable energy, plus a jobs guarantee and other provisions.
