Campaign Press Release - FACT CHECK: Kamala Harris Supports AOC's Socialist Green New Deal

October 07, 2020

Harris was all for the $93-trillion manifesto to exterminate cows, ban airplanes, and kill millions of jobs.

Kamala Harris is the most radical, far-left vice presidential nominee in modern history, so it's no surprise that she has fully embraced the AOC's socialist, job-killing, anti-energy agenda known as the "Green New Deal."

  • One study found that the radical Green New Deal endorsed by Harris would kill 5.2 million jobs and cost an average family $165,000.

The Green New Deal would dictate every aspect of our lives, eliminate consumer choice, decimate manufacturing and farming communities, and permanently crush the American economy -- and Kamala Harris fully embraced it.

  • Harris is a cosponsor of the Green New Deal legislation in the Senate and was the first Democrat presidential candidate to endorse the Green New Deal.

  • Harris said "I support a Green New Deal" and bragged about her own energy plan being the "most aggressive and progressive."

  • Harris described the "principles behind" the radical Green New Deal as "sound and important"

  • Harris said she would support eliminating the Senate filibuster to pass a Green New Deal.

From restricting cars and ending air travel to discouraging Americans from eating meat, the Green New Deal would be an unmitigated disaster for virtually every American.

  • According to a now-deleted fact sheet released by socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the Green New Deal would eliminate "farting cows and airplanes" and provide "economic security" for anyone who is "unwilling to work."

  • The Green New Deal would cost up to $93 trillion over 10 years, according to one estimate. The infrastructure alone would cost the U.S. an estimated $5.7 trillion.

  • Electricity bills would skyrocket, with the average American household's utility bill increasing by up to $3,900, and the average household cost surpassing $35,000 per year.

  • Green New Deal activists have their eyes set on Americans' straws, cheeseburgers, and light bulbs to "change our energy consumption."

Like Joe Biden, Kamala Harris is another anti-energy radical, supporting policies that would destroy American energy production.

A Biden-Harris Administration would relegate American farming and manufacturing to near-extinction, ship more jobs overseas, and take more of Americans' hard-earned money.
