Bernie Sanders to Fund ‘Major’ Multitrillion-Dollar Plans with Military Cuts, Taxes, Lawsuits

By HANNAH BLEAU

Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) on Monday released a fact sheet explaining how he will fund his “major” multitrillion-dollar campaign proposals — the Green New Deal, free college, housing for all, etc. — and revealed that he will pay for them through a combination of cutting military spending, creating new taxes, and enacting penalties on the fossil fuel industry in the form of lawsuits.

While Sanders has released a suite of lofty plans with the promise to improve the lives of middle class and low income Americans, critics have repeatedly asked the socialist senator to explain how his administration will pay for his grandiose proposals.

His campaign released a fact sheet on Monday listing each of his “major plans” and providing a line on how he will make it a reality.

His $16.3 trillion Green New Deal plan, perhaps one of his most prolific proposals, will be paid for, he claims, through a variety of methods including slashes in military spending and lawsuits against the fossil fuel industry.

He is calling to reduce defense spending by $1.215 trillion “by scaling back military operations on protecting the global oil supply.” His campaign claims he will raise $3.085 trillion by “making the fossil fuel industry pay for their pollution, through litigation, fees, and taxes, and eliminating federal fossil fuel subsidies.” He expects to garner another $6.4 trillion “from the wholesale of energy produced by the regional Power Marketing Administrations.”

“This revenue will be collected from 2023-2035, and after 2035 electricity will be virtually free, aside from operations and maintenance costs,” his website states.

Sanders also claims his Green New Deal plan will create 20 million jobs, which will effectively create a new tax base and eliminate the need for $1.31 trillion in “federal and state safety net spending due to the creation of millions of good-paying, unionized jobs.”

His campaign actually argues that enacting his multitrillion-dollar climate change proposal will save the United States $2.9 trillion in the next decade, $21 trillion over the next 30 years, and  $70.4 trillion over the next 80 years.

“If we do not act, the U.S. will lose $34.5 trillion by the end of the century in economic productivity,” he claims.

That is far from Sanders’ only proposal. Offering free college and cancelation of student debt will cost, according to his estimates, $2.2 trillion. Sanders claims the plan is “fully paid” for with a “modest tax on Wall Street speculation,” contending that it will raise more than enough — $2.4 million over the next decade.

Sanders says his $1.5 trillion housing for all plan and $1.5 trillion universal child care/pre-K plan will be paid for with “a wealth tax on the top one-tenth of one percent – those who have a net worth of at least $32 million.” He claims it will raise “a total of $4.35 trillion.”

His other plans rely almost entirely on new taxes on the wealthy. His vow to erase $81 billion past-due medical debt will be “fully paid for by establishing an income inequality tax on large corporations that pay CEOs at least 50 times more than average workers.” Additionally, Social Security expansion will be paid for, he says, with a tax on Americans with incomes over $250,000.

Instead of explicitly stating how Sanders will fund his Medicare for All plan, which some experts say could cost over $60 trillion over the next decade, the fact sheet simply touts a “menu of financing options that would more than pay for the Medicare for All legislation he has introduced,” which includes raising taxes on the middle class.

Per the fact sheet, those options include:

  • Creating a 4 percent income-based premium paid by employees, exempting the first $29,000 in income for a family of four.

  • Imposing a 7.5 percent income-based premium paid by employers, exempting the first $1 million in payroll to protect small businesses.

  • Eliminating health tax expenditures, which would no longer be needed under Medicare for All.

  • Raising the top marginal income tax rate to 52% on income over $10 million.

  • Replacing the cap on the state and local tax deduction with an overall dollar cap of $50,000 for a married couple on all itemized deductions.

  • Taxing capital gains at the same rates as income from wages and cracking down on gaming through derivatives, like-kind exchanges, and the zero tax rate on capital gains passed on through bequests.

  • Enacting the For the 99.8% Act, which returns the estate tax exemption to the 2009 level of $3.5 million, closes egregious loopholes, and increases rates progressively including by adding a top tax rate of 77% on estate values in excess of $1 billion.

  • Enacting corporate tax reform including restoring the top federal corporate income tax rate to 35 percent.

  • Using $350 billion of the amount raised from the tax on extreme wealth to help finance Medicare for All.

The release of the fact sheet follows Sanders growing frustration over the mounting questions over the costs of his massive proposals.

Anderson Cooper grilled Sanders on the costs of his various proposals during the presidential hopeful’s recent sit-down interview with 60 Minutes.

“But you say you don’t know what the total price is, but you know how it’s going to be paid for. How do you know it’s going to be paid for if you don’t know how much the price is?” Cooper asked.

“I can’t rattle off to you every nickel and every dime,” Sanders said. “But we have accounted for — you talked about Medicare for All — we have options out there that will pay for it.”

Problem Solved! 😂

SURPRISED? GRETA THUNBERG’S “COACH” A SOROS, BILL & MELINDA GATES OPERATIVE

Surprised? Greta Thunberg's "Coach" A Soros, Bill & Melinda Gates Operative

The same globalists seem to have financial ties to every major propaganda movement

 – SEPTEMBER 24, 2019

16-year-old climate opportunist Greta Thunberg is being pushed by the worldwide establishment after speaking in front of Congress, the U.N., meeting the Pope and being the face of this weekend’s climate protests.

How did this teenage girl become such a dominant figure in the issue of climate protection?

It turns out there are powerful forces behind the sudden rise of the Swedish adolescent, including some of the usual suspects.

A woman who accompanies Thunberg to most public events is German climate activist Luisa-Marie Neubauer.

EuropeReloaded.com reported, “Thunberg soon also got her own coach – a well-known climate activist from Germany by the name Luisa-Marie Neubauer (pictured). What is the likelihood of a young girl who starts a school strike outside the Swedish parliament, getting schoolchildren from all over the world to join her cause and fight against climate change? And how often do 16-year-olds have their own coaches?”

It turns out Neubauer is the “Youth Ambassador” of the “ONE” foundation, an international lobbying organization funded by George Soros, Bill and Melinda Gates, Bono and others.

In a tweet from 2018, Neubauer wrote, “Perks of being a ONE Youth Ambassador: you get to meet awesome ONE campaigners all over the world.”

According to the “ONE” website, “ONE originated in conversations between Bill Gates and Bono in the early 2000s about the need to better inform Americans about extreme poverty around the world.”

“Together with Melinda Gates, Bobby Shriver, George Soros, Ed Scott, Bob Geldof, and Jamie Drummond, they created an anti-poverty advocacy organization called DATA that focused on deploying celebrities and other influential individuals to urge world leaders to take action on specific development issues,” the site continues.

Like anti-gun activist David Hogg, the globalist establishment is shoehorning Thunberg into the public spotlight to further their agenda even if it means taking advantage of a teenager with Asperger’s.

Watch Greta Thunberg Channel Hitler In Hate-Filled Rant

The new face of eco-fascism speaks!

9/24/2019

Eco-fascist Greta Thunberg released a hate-filled rant and looked at President Donald Trump with a gaze that would turn mortal men to stone.

In this video, Alex Jones explains how this young girl has been manipulated to become a pawn of the globalists, saying, “Greta Thunberg is a victim. Greta Thunberg is Autistic, she has Asperger’s. And like so many other children in history who have been handicapped, she has been taken advantage of by her Antifa parents and by the left.”

500 Scientists Write U.N.: ‘There Is No Climate Emergency’

THOMAS D. WILLIAMS, PH.D.

More than 500 scientists and professionals in climate and related fields have sent a “European Climate Declaration” to the Secretary-General of the United Nations asking for a long-overdue, high-level, open debate on climate change.

Just as 16-year-old Swedish climate activist Greta Thunberg addressed the U.N. Climate Action Summit in New York accusing world leaders of robbing her of her future, scientists were begging the United Nations to keep hysteria from obscuring facts.

“Climate science should be less political, while climate policies should be more scientific,” the declaration states. “Scientists should openly address the uncertainties and exaggerations in their predictions of global warming, while politicians should dispassionately count the real benefits as well as the imagined costs of adaptation to global warming, and the real costs as well as the imagined benefits of mitigation.”

The scientists underscored the importance of not rushing into enormously expensive climate action before fully ascertaining the facts.

“There is no statistical evidence that global warming is intensifying hurricanes, floods, droughts and suchlike natural disasters, or making them more frequent,” they declared. “However, CO2-mitigation measures are as damaging as they are costly. For instance, wind turbines kill birds and bats, and palm-oil plantations destroy the biodiversity of the rainforests.”

The signatories of the declaration also insist that public policy must respect scientific and economic realities and not just reflect the most fashionable frenzy of the day.

“There is no climate emergency. Therefore, there is no cause for panic and alarm,” they note. “We strongly oppose the harmful and unrealistic net-zero CO2 policy proposed for 2050.”

“If better approaches emerge, and they certainly will, we have ample time to reflect and adapt. The aim of international policy should be to provide reliable and affordable energy at all times, and throughout the world,” they state.

In particular, the scientists criticize the general-circulation models of climate on which international policy is currently founded as “unfit for their purpose.”

“Therefore, it is cruel as well as imprudent to advocate the squandering of trillions on the basis of results from such immature models,” they propose. “Current climate policies pointlessly, grievously undermine the economic system, putting lives at risk in countries denied access to affordable, continuous electrical power.”

“We urge you to follow a climate policy based on sound science, realistic economics and genuine concern for those harmed by costly but unnecessary attempts at mitigation,” they declare.

Swedish Teen Greta Thunberg Screams at World Leaders at UN Climate Summit, ‘You Have Stolen My Childhood… How Dare You!’ (VIDEO)

 

First they trotted out David Hogg to lecture us on the 2nd Amendment, now a 16-year-old from Sweden is lecturing us on non-existent global warming.

16-year-old Swedish ‘Climate Change’ activist Greta Thunberg appeared before the UN on Monday and held back tears as she angrily accused world leaders of ‘stealing her childhood.’

The Marxist Globalists stole her childhood by feeding her lies and propaganda about global warming — she believes the lies so she is now living in fear.

Thunberg has a myriad of mental health issues. She is autistic, has obsessive-compulsive disorder, and suffers from Asperger syndrome and the left is pushing her out onto the world stage and exploiting her.

“This is all wrong. I shouldn’t be up here. I should be back at school on the other side of the ocean,” Thunberg said.

“You have stolen my dreams and my childhood with your empty words. We are in the beginning of a mass extinction and all you can talk about is money and fairy tales of eternal economic growth. How dare you,” a visibly upset Greta Thunberg said Monday as she opened the United Nations Climate Action Summit.

WATCH:

Last week Greta Thunberg appeared before US lawmakers to lecture the US on the climate hoax.

Meanwhile China and India continue to be the world’s biggest polluters because Climate Change legislation isn’t about the environment, it’s about a global scheme to redistribute wealth.

Marxists always prey on the innocent and children.

Watch: Twerking Climate Activists Block DC Roads, Disrupt Morning Commutes Confetti, Litter Everywhere… to Save the Planet

CAP

BY AMANDA HOUSE

Climate activist groups plan to “Shut Down D.C.” early Monday morning, aiming “to take action all over the district to disrupt business as usual.”

The protest follows a weekend of climate strikes across the country and coincides with the United Nations Climate Action Summit in New York.

According to the event’s facebook page: They “will block key infrastructure to stop business-as-usual, bringing the whole city to a gridlocked standstill.”

“Parents, workers, college students, and everyone who is concerned about the climate crisis will skip work and school and put off their other responsibilities to take action on the climate crisis,” the page adds.

“This is the mass uprising that everyone with climate anxiety has been waiting for,” the event’s facebook page continues. “This is an uprising for life itself, fighting back against the forces of destruction. This is your chance to take action to save the people, plants, and animals you love. Let’s rise to the challenge and shut down DC!”

Throughout the event, the protesters can be seen dancing in front of cars and throwing confetti into the air. When asked about the litter, one activist told Breitbart News that the confetti is “biodegradable.”

At one point, the protesters walked to the nearby Wells Fargo building to protest against the bank’s involvement in financing the Dakota Access Pipeline and the Keystone XL Pipeline.

Local authorities and news outlets have been trying to warn commuters of the disruption:

SHIP CARRYING ‘CLIMATE CHANGE WARRIORS’ CONCERNED ABOUT MELTING ARCTIC ICE GETS STUCK IN ICE

Ship Carrying 'Climate Change Warriors' Concerned About Melting Arctic Ice Gets Stuck in Ice

Well, this is awkward.

 | SEPTEMBER 11, 2019

A ship carrying passengers who included a group of ‘Climate Change Warriors’ who are concerned about melting Arctic ice got stuck in the ice halfway between Norway and the North Pole.

Oh, the irony.

“Arctic tours ship MS MALMO with 16 passengers on board got stuck in ice on Sep 3 off Longyearbyen, Svalbard Archipelago,” reports the Maritime Bulletin. “The ship is on Arctic tour with Climate Change documentary film team, and tourists, concerned with Climate Change and melting Arctic ice.”

The passengers were safely evacuated by helicopter.

“Something is very wrong with Arctic ice, instead of melting as ordered by UN/IPCC, it captured the ship with Climate Change Warriors,” joked Erofey Schkvarkin.

The story is similar to a 2014 incident when a Chinese icebreaker had to be sent to rescue dozens of global warming researchers and environmentalists who got stranded on a ship which got stuck in the Antarctic ice.

Poster child environmentalist Greta Thunberg has not commented on the latest incident.
