AOC Pushes ‘Green New Deal’ to Ban Gas Stoves from Public Housing, Fund Socialist Schemes

Radical Democrat Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) is planning to roll out an updated version of her “Green New Deal” that seeks to advance the globalist agenda and fund social schemes with American taxpayer money.

AOC’s updated “Green New Deal” seeks to remove all gas stoves from public housing to “fight climate change,” among other measures.

It also pushes for the funding of socialist schemes such as the creation of universal healthcare and guaranteed income programs.

Socialism was the central theme of AOC’s Green New Deal when she unveiled it in 2019.

Back then, AOC’s plan sought guaranteed income programs that would pay people a taxpayer-funded wage if they were “unwilling to work,” even if they were able to.

The new version appears to have carried over these socialist schemes but added some new additions to advance the globalist green agenda.

On Thursday, AOC, Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT), and other radical legislators launched the “Green New Deal for Public Housing Act” in Washington, D.C., according to Politico.

The bill says it aims to “provide economic empowerment opportunities in the United States” by making public housing climate-friendly, according to its text.

The legislation would effectively mandate the electrification of almost every aspect of public housing, including the deployment of electric vehicle (EV) chargers and the replacement of gas stoves.

The bill is designed to “reimagine and reinvigorate public housing in the United States” and reverse “many of the environmental injustices that public housing residents have faced,” AOC told Politico.

According to the Department of Housing and Urban Development, approximately 1.2 million American households are living in public housing.

The bill would require “electric appliances to replace appliances reliant on fossil fuels, such as gas stoves and hot water heaters” in America’s public housing.

It also demands the buildout of “electric vehicle charging infrastructure for public housing residents and visitors,” according to its text.

EVs tend to cost significantly more than gas-powered models, with the average EV costing consumers about 25% more than the average automobile, according to Green Cars.

It is unclear why AOC and her allies believe people in public housing would be driving expensive electric vehicles.

Ocasio-Cortez and other left-wing lawmakers have previously attempted to pass Green New Deal legislation in 2019 and 2021.

However, both of those efforts flopped due to the sweeping and expensive nature of the legislation.

The initial version of the Green New Deal called for numerous left-wing proposals, including forcing the American economy to move away from fossil fuels within ten years and eliminating cattle farming.

It also pushed socialist/communist policies including the creation of universal health care, guaranteed income programs, and job programs.

In the text of the legislation, it called for “social, economic, racial, regional and gender-based justice and equality and cooperative and public ownership.”

The Green New Deal for Public Housing would require taxpayers to fund the implementation of “photovoltaic glass windows” in public housing, as well as “all-electric state-of-the-art efficient appliances,” according to its text.

Additionally, the bill would require applicants looking for government grants to carry out these changes to submit “a signed acknowledgment indicating a commitment to transition all public housing owned or managed by the eligible entity into zero-carbon homes not later than 10 years after the date on which the eligible entity receives the grant,” according to its text.

The bill would also require the government to “give preference” to grant applicants that have formed partnerships with organized labor.

Preferred applicants would also include those that provide “training and employment opportunities reserved specifically for local low- and very low-income people that were formerly incarcerated” and “stipends valued at not less than $250 per week” for people participating in relevant workforce development programs.

Meanwhile, the socialist provisions in the bill have little to do with “climate change” at face value.

It would require “the establishment and leasing of commercial activity that offers public housing residents on-site access to goods and services” such as high-quality healthcare, dental clinics, bookshops, cheap organic groceries, and tutoring centers, according to its text.

The legislation would also require the government to subsidize centers for seniors and children at or around public housing developments, as well as community gardens and high-speed internet, according to its text.

The bill also would mandate the government to facilitate “the establishment or improvement of dedicated infrastructure for transportation by bicycle, including lanes, parking spots, and the bulk purchase of enough bicycles to offer 1 bicycle to every low- and very low-income public housing resident.”
