So... if the wealthy are the cause of climate change... why don't we just put them on a table, make them comfortable... while we decide if we should abort them?

Whoa now... 

 

The cause of climate change is clearly cow toots. 

 

The cost, however, for my liberal colleagues to get re-elected and live like kings on governmental expenditures is extensive and requires rich people taxation to fund it. 

 

This results in greater socialism, which results in a worse economy, which means less money for people to be able to afford food, which leads to less cows, and thereby less cow tooting.

I take it you don’t believe in climate change, living wage and healthcare. Her ideas are to help the poor and middle class. This is something new because normally politicians work for the filthy rich.

The very first draft had reference to the basic living wage being for people who were unwilling to work as well as those who were unable. 

Suffice to say that once people found out about that the bit in bold disappeared quickly.

OOOOHHH... Now THAT's an idea.

It's almost better than the government printing money to pay for a transpacific-to-transcarribean high speed rail connecting Hawaii and the Bahamas to mainland USA running across the southern border ON TOP OF A 20-ft WALL!

Actually, it didn't.  The whole document/FAQs/etc disappeared quickly... well, as much as it can disappear off the internet.  The mad scramble for excuses ranged from the Republicans doctoring the document to a draft got mistakenly published to somebody made a mistake in the communications department.  If they would have just said "the dog ate the homework" it would have been more believable.

Either way, the whole thing makes it very, very clear that AOC is well divorced from reality.

I've even heard rumors that the Democrats in her home state are looking to redistrict her district out of existence so that they can justify getting rid of her.

If any of it was really concern for the environment, there's nothing stopping them from reducing their own impact without needing any legislation.  Forcing others to do it isn't about the environment; it's about power.  Same for helping anyone; their millions/billions won't be available to feed or clothe or "provide a minimum standard of living" for anyone.
