Sen. Cory Booker fired-back at critics of the Democrats’ ‘Green New Deal’ this week; saying it’s an outright “lie” that the massive federal program -estimated to cost $7 trillion- would “hurt the economy”
“This is the lie that’s going on right now,” said Booker from the pivotal primary state of New Hampshire Monday.
“This lie that’s being put out – that somehow being green and responsible with the environment means you have to hurt the economy – a lie,” he added. “We environmentally retrofitted our buildings. Saves taxpayers money, created jobs for our community and lowered our carbon footprint.”
A recent report from the Wall Street Journal revealed it cost the New York City Housing authority $2,000 per apartment to switch to LED lighting.
“One recent project focused on 23 housing developments, and changing the light bulbs and fixtures there cost $33.2 million,” write the Journal.

BOOKER GOES BERSERK: Explodes, Says ‘Green New Deal’ Same as FIGHTING NAZIS
Sen. Cory Booker doubled-down on Rep. Ocasio-Cortez’ ‘Green New Deal’ Friday; telling a crowd of supporters the fight against climate change is the same as those who fought against Nazi Germany during World War II.
“We have to deal with this, our planet is in peril. We need to be bold, that’s why I co-sponsored the resolution for the Green New Deal,” said Booker.
“We are a nation that has done impossible things before. We need to be bold again in America. When the planet has been imperiled in the past, who came forward to save earth from the scourge of Nazism? We came forward,” he added.
You can’t make this up.
