    And now I have to say AGAIN, electric vehicles aside, the technology EXISTS to produce automotive engines that run of hydrogen, utilizing WATER as fuel with water vapor the only emission. This is just the TIP OF THE ICEBERG! Those in the shadows BEHIND the US and other governments are keeping a veil over technologies that would REINVENT the US and the world, and We The People need to lift that veil and take the human race FORWARD to the next levels! I HOPE the hell AOC and others in Congress are aware of this reality and prepared to implement the necessary actions to save our race and our planet.

    So, like last night I was, um, you know, watching late night television, ok? And, like they played a repeat of this episode. And I was like, "what?", really! Then I like, realized it was a repeat, but you know, like watched it anyway. I was like "That's cool, I'm still like, up, after you know, like moving around some furniture and like doing other things in the evening." So, like I watched the show and AOC looked kind of pretty, and I was all like "Like, I like her!" Now, it's like today - and this is how I like, talk now, you know?

    How does AOC plan on producing all this electricity to run her utopia? She wants to eliminate all the fuel for its production. I guess we could burn all the money we take from the billionaires. I know, we will harness all the hot air and gas from the politicians and media.

    Apparently she seems to have something that's totally missing with for the most part Republican politicians and the Trump crew; SHE'S A REAL PERSON! It's like airring out a stuffy room with fresh air! She makes them all look Shallow and Stupid. No wonder Trump supporter's and Fox don't like her; they're beneath her.

    If the green new deal is a congressional resolution why did the senate needed to vote on it? And why is it that when the voting ended why did the green new deal seem to had ended as well?

    Why should we pay for your education? My wife works her ass of at school and because of that is only left with $7,500 in student debt. Totally manageable and she earned it! No one should be entitled to free secondary education.

    "They're suggesting the Green New Deal is about what we have to give up, what we have to cut back on"
    Did she not read what she wrote? The whole thing is literally about what we have to eliminate and by when! In gavtvproposes nothing but vagueness as a solution!

    AOC is retarded.
    She fails to realize that the government will only provide what it can afford.
    What makes her think the government will be able to provide everybody a luxurious lifestyle with above average living conditions and nice spacious homes?
    What world does she think we live in, lala land?
    This is not some Disney fantasy, it's the real world.
    Somebody needs to slap this chick back into reality.

    Without fossil fuels, the price of renewable energy would be so high that average Americans wouldn't be able to afford it.

    health care is a right???? is food a right? is housing a right? is education beyond high school a right? are utilities a right? is your cell phone a right? is your car/transportation a right? I think what she is really trying to say is that we should all trust in her and her cronies to provide for us our basic "rights", regardless of who has the drive, wherewithal, motivation, ability, and resources to provide all these "rights" to the masses. I think Adolf Hitler tried this, if history serves me correctly, it didn't end well.

      History does not serve you correctly you are a retard.
      How just how do you listen to her and come away with yeap she is just like Hitler?
      look America produces vate amounts of wealth by 2020 70% of all profit created in America will go to the 1% she is suggesting we spend that wealth on healthcare and education instead of endless war.
