Wolf on The Green New Deal Resolution from January 2019 here and here.
Wolf: "I like it, as an outcome, I know we probably need it, but it is definitely short-circuiting one of the pillars of our democracy, which is that the bill gets to be drafted by people’s representatives, and passed by the people’s representatives, and these 15 people [making up the committee] and Nancy Pelosi don’t get to say what’s in the bill, right? That’s kind of called Fascism."
"I love local solutions but this is a federal bill and it's a federal action and so this is a gigantic power grab to intervene in how local communities do business and maybe the climate crisis has led to a situation which we just need to suspend local municipalities right to make their own municipal laws I don't think so."
The Green New Deal s like "The Bush people” declaring “that the war on terror was going to go on for 99 years."
