1:43 am
whether or not candidates going to the democrat nomination start to explain to the public how this will impact them. if you look at the way the green new deal is marketed, focusing on job creation. if you look at bernie's plan, calls for free, virtually free, those are his words, virtually free energy. if you allow them to make these claims without explaining why does not free they will get away with it. you need to look at how you make this free when talking about nationalizing the energy sector and not charging people for those costs but we know what the cost will be, look at germany, the systems, doesn't just impact your air-conditioning and heating bill, it will impact the other sector as well because one of the advantages, the cheapest in the world. >> let's bring up the things that are being offered, net 0
