Speaking during his opening monologue on ‘Hannity’ Thursday night, Sean weighed-in on Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’ ‘Green New Deal’ proposal; saying the program would cost “trillions and destroy capitalism.”
“Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and other Democrats released their radical and extreme Green New Deal today,” said Hannity.
“We’re going to demand every business and house in the country be rebuilt, we’re going to offer free college, free housing, free healthcare, free retirement, everything’s free. The reasoning is the earth’s going to end in twelve years, so we’ll do this in ten years. It’s going to cost trillions and destroy capitalism,” he added.

Recently sworn-in Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez finally lifted the curtain on her ‘Green New Deal’ Thursday; calling for sweeping environmental and energy changes as House Speaker Pelosi dismissed the policy as a “Green Dream.”
The proposal calls for a 10-year transition from fossil fuels towards 100% renewable energy across the country, as well as sweeping social changes including new infrastructure, a revamped healthcare system, and a federal jobs program.
“The Green New Deal fully tackles the existential threat posed by climate change by presenting a comprehensive, 10-year plan that is as big as the problem it hopes to solve while creating a new era of shared prosperity,” says a summary of the legislation.
