Kamala Harris on New Green Deal price tag: “It’s not about a cost”

Rate this post

From Fox News: Democratic presidential hopeful Kamala Harris pointedly declined in an interview broadcast Sunday to put a price tag on the Green New Deal and “Medicare-for-all,” which she has endorsed wholeheartedly even as Republicans cite nonpartisan cost estimates of trillions of dollars for each unprecedented proposal.

Harris, D-Calif., joined Sens. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., and Cory Booker, D-N.J. to co-sponsor the Green New Deal resolution earlier this month. The resolution’s botched rollout included the release of an official document by New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s office that promised economic security even for those “unwilling to work,” as well as the elimination of “farting cows” and air travel.

“There’s no question we have to be practical. But being practical also recognizes that climate change is an existential threat to us as human beings,” Harris began. “Being practical recognizes that greenhouse gas emissions are threat to our air, and threatening our planet. And that it is well within our capacity as human beings to change our behaviors in a way that we can reduce its effect. That’s practical. Of course we can afford it.”

CNN’s John King asked Harris for her response to conservative arguments that progressive proposals could end up doing more harm than good, by crippling the U.S. economy even as major polluters like China continue unabated.

According to the Mercatus Center at George Washington University, for example, Ocasio-Cortez’s plan for universal Medicare would end up costing more than $30 trillion, even after factoring in the sweeping tax hikes that would offset the expense by only roughly $2 trillion. Charles Blahous, a senior strategist at the Mercatus Center and an author of the study, later charged that Ocasio-Cortez had wildly misinterpreted his study to try to argue that “Medicare-for-all” would save money.

“One of the things that I admire and respect is the measurement that is captured in three letters: ROI,” Harris responded. “What’s the return on investment? People in the private sector understand this really well. It’s not about a cost. It’s about an investment. And then the question should be, is it worth the cost in terms of the investment potential? Are we going to get back more than we put in?”

Harris’ loose invocation of an economics term echoed language by Ocasio-Cortez, who has repeatedly and confidently said “there’s a little thing in economics known as externalities” to justify her Green New Deal proposal.

Silly Kamala…if you are going to calculate the ROI you’d know that the benefit would have to be divided by the cost of the investment. That’s how this ratio works.

But I know math doesn’t really apply when sucking us taxpayers dry.

  1. Please, it is Nude Green Eel Alt-right Pepe’s next door neighbor and sometimes main squeeze.

     
  2. Is Kamala Harris in competition with Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez for the Democratic Socialist Economics Idiot award?

     
    • She worries me none. This wannabe will not make the cut, Jamaican-Indian-American Kamala lacks the kind of savvy needed to run for public office, and there are the smart old goats that will crush her aspirations, she doesn’t fit the swamp clan, neither is known for any political accomplishments other than courtrooms in CA and her “benefactors”. She is just a woman using the opportunity to make a name and run for governor or any other government job making money with taxpayers “contributions”.

       
      • Born with a limited gray matter and an advanced stage of stupidity, Magpie Ocasio-Cortez is just a useful instrument in the hands of communist party mogul Bernie Sanders, working the strings in the liberal moppet show,

         
      • Hoping that some of those “smart old goats” are big Pharma and the health insurance companies…..not saying I agree with what’s going on with either, (among other atrocities) they both publicly conspired with Obama to create Obamacare b/c…why? (still can’t figure out)…..they must have thought they were “buying time” (supported financially by the big unConstitutional Obama slush fund into which he reached to support his Obamacare) or something…I know my own HMO thought this…..thought the “health care payer-Gods” were coming to “save them” against the onslaught of non-payer illegals in their emergency rooms here in CA….which did not pan out much. And, additionally, they are both anti-capitalist “price-fixers” IMO just b/c “they can.” But, please tell me that they MUST recognize the AOC’s and Kamala Harris’s of our day for what they are—socialists who will wipe them out of business ENTIRELY…instead of “just” the business “remodeling” of the Obama years. This is why I hope their capitalist hearts are aimed with daggers against AOC and the likes of Kamala Harris and good OLD OLD OLD OLD OLD Venezuelan butt-kissing Bernie Sanders.

         
  3. April 15 is not far away, anyone want K. Harris or A. Ocasio-Cortez to prepare their tax returns?

     
  4. Great, then you pay for it…

     
  5. “The Cost” will be the only story if our nation is stupid enough to be suckered into this rancid green deal.

     
    • You can say that again Trail!

      I have two words about this woman. Liar. Sociopath.

       
      • Who has a “jewish” handler, who is her husband To help prepare for their “Super Government” as the prayer in the Conservative “jewish” tradition called it.

         
        • Oh yes, they have plans. They ALWAYS have plans:
          WHAT TALMUDICS THINK

          Historically, Jews had always thrived in nations and empires with multicultural, pluralistic and tolerant environments, while they fared badly in strong ethnic or nationalistic societies. European Jews have always been the emblematic stranger or ‘other’. Therefore, by definition, a society where the stranger is welcome is good for the Jews, although they have not always appreciated this link. The future of European Jewry is dependent on our ability to shape a multicultural, pluralistic and diverse society. ~ Göran Rosenberg, Jewish author and journalist

          **********

          American Jews are committed to cultural tolerance because of their belief ~ one firmly rooted in history ~ that Jews are safe only in a society acceptant of a wide range of attitudes and behaviors, as well as a diversity of religious and ethnic groups. It is this belief, for example, not approval of homosexuality, that leads an overwhelming majority of U.S. Jews to endorse ‘gay rights’ and to take a liberal stance on most other so-called ‘social’ issues. ~ Charles Silberman, Jewish writer and journalist

          **********

          The Jew … Judaizes … he provokes religious indifference, but he also imposes on those whose faith he destroys, his own concept of the world, of morality, and of human life. The Jews detests the spirit of the nation in the midst of which they live. ~ Bernard Lazare

           
          • Wow.
            Thank you, Lophatt, for these quotes.
            They explain what I’ve always wondered — Why Jews, ahem, Khazarians, want to live in a society awash in amorality and immorality.

             
            • I think it goes beyond wanting to feel safe and there are plenty of other quotes to back that up. Sure there may be a few Jews of other generation that had that fear. But what can we say of the presetn perverse generation of Jews who continue in their quest to tear down, and destroy everything, even with their own homeland now. They have had a plan for world domination from the get go- their idea of being ” chosen”. If it were only about feeling safe you wouldn’t see the pushing of every perversion that goes against traditional cultures, esp. Christianity. I really think E. Michael Jones captures the Jewish spirit in his book The Jewish Revolutionary Spirit.
              With their rejection of Jesus they rejected God. They are anti- Logos, and have put themselves in Gods place. Tikkon Olum is not repairing the world. The world doesn’t need repairing if most even tired to follow Jesus. Tikkon Olum is remaking the world according to their image – Satanic Judaism.

              I think I already posted this the other day- if not I meant to. It supports the quotes Lophatt shared above within an larger article. http://www.thetruthseeker.co.uk/?p=184090

              Also, this is a good article on the question of Jewish destructive behavior from the European perspective pre WWII.

              https://www.theoccidentalobserver.net/2017/05/10/the-jewish-question-suggested-readings-with-commentary-part-one-of-three-the-enlightenment-and-jewish-emancipation/

               
              • Yes, it goes much deeper than the quotes I provided. In fact, I rather carefully chose those as they were the least “antagonistic” of the ones I have.

                I like yours as well. I have suggested Douglas Reed’s “The Controversy of Zion” many times and it’s free on line. It is very easy to understand, it is, however, unique as there are no other groups I’m aware of that come close to this level of control and destructive behavior.

                Reed does the best overview of the subject I’ve ever read, and I’ve read several. It is also telling that although the Jews complain about articles and books exposing this behavior, they seldom, if ever, deny the behavior itself.

                Further, I understand the motivators and excuses, none of them make the behaviors any more tolerable. The Church used to teach about this in the interest of protecting parishioners. All that sort of came to a screeching halt after Vatican II.

                To deny these things is to deny reality itself. This is similar, although not exactly like racial discussions. Willful ignorance never resolved anything nor helped anybody to understand the world we inhabit.

                Many have studied this and many have had their lives irreparably harmed as a result. We are immeasurably in their debt.

                 
              • To add just a few words on your links. I would not argue with them, but as most do, they start “in the middle” so to speak. This is why I recommend Reed. I think it is easier to understand if we start from the “Return” from the first diaspora.

                Deuteronomy was the first book they produced in exile. It actually stands the oral tradition on its head. Along with the others it establishes the temple cult and with it, the authority of the Sanhedrin.

                Once that was accomplished they forever after had a pool of obedient workers to carry out their plans going forward. With the advent of Christianity and the writing of the Talmud, the destruction of Christianity and everything connected to it became the prime directive.

                So, while we look at individual practices and destructive behaviors today their roots are firmly rooted on their return from Babylon with the help of Cyrus the Great. Napoleon’s inquisition was amateur work for them by then.

                 
                • I really should read Douglas Reeds’ book, but I hate reading in depth stuff online. Anything that goes at length or requires some digesting I like to have in my hands when I read. I imagine this book is hard to get a hold of in print.

                  I’m kind of laughing because you mentioned I didn’t go back far enough, and wasn’t perhaps blunt enough. Well I am right there with you, my natural tendency is to cut to the chase and not mince words, but I try not to push too hard with this subject. If someone is showing interest I have learned I can’t hit them on the head with a sledge hammer right off the bat- it usually doesn’t go so well.

                  I knew the Jews brought most of their nasties out of Babylon, but I haven’t read the details of that history myself to be of any edification to others. And I didn’t know about Cyrus the Great. My, isn’t it interesting that Israel has minted a temple coin with Trump and Cyrus on it? All that aside I think E. Michael Jones thesis has great merit. They are anti- Logos. And if a group is anti- Logos it can be no surprise that they are destroyers. Jones does a pretty good job of showing how they have been in constant revolt since the fall of the Temple and that has nothing to do with being ” safe”.

                   
              • Thanks, Lana, for the 2 links.
                It still boggles my mind why Khazarians want to live in the chaotic-debauched society they’ve actively degraded.

                 
            • Thank you. It’s depressing, but it “is what it is”.

               
      • Well, if you don’t like that one, try this one! I’m serious, you can’t make this stuff up:

    • I actually see this as the final stage. This is where The Odor “makes their announcement”. They have pushed it to a point where one either has to abandon all their beliefs and jump ship or go down with this ship of fools.

      There is no way to “compromise” with any of their garbage any longer. It is their way or the highway. So it looks like a road trip to me. Their agenda is deliberately insane. Anyone who can sign up to that needs institutionalization.

      Now these scummy political hacks, like Kamala (is my Willy Brown?) Harris, are just mouthing the lines they’ve been given by their owners in The Odor. They don’t care whether they “make sense” or not. Worse, they are DEMANDING complete and total adherence to their creed.

      People don’t know which bathroom to use. They don’t want to be straight, they’d rather be perverts. They like to murder babies. The world is ending in twelve years. Wow. Where do I sign up?

       
  6. Harris is just ANOTHER Leftist fraud…

     
  7. I’m not even sure its legal for a federal representative to receive honors from a seditious organization. I hope this means she’ll be moving to Tijuana.

  8. The mixed race evil golem Kamala Harris has a “jewish” handler, who is her husband. Kofi Annan the former head of the UN was another.

    • Well, isn’t THAT special? Looks like she’s on the fast track with her owners. And all this time I thought she was a Hindu who liked “dark meat”. A pair of lawyers nonetheless. It’s a cinch neither knows both their parents.

       
  9. Of course it is not about cost.

    It is about power.

     
  10. Another grab at a global tax, based on a “theory” that is just that, a “theory”. Problem is, the schools and the government teach theories as if they are laws.
    Oh, and I wonder if Hellery Clinton is going to try and force us to get the mark of the beast using “medicare” as the dodge again.

     
    • Oh yeah, soon they’ll have us all wired up so they can dispense a few “credits” for out allowance if we keep mooing gently and don’t cause any trouble. They will watch us shuffle, THX-1138-like from our work station to our stack and pack box and we will acquire “social credits” that may allow us to go to the park or something if we’re good.
