Americans overwhelmingly oppose expensive Green New Deal programs.
A new poll from Competitive Enterprise Institute reveals that Americans’ financial dedication to the Green New Deal that leftists have been demanding for several years already is lagging.
Just a little bit.
The proposal as outlined by some members of Congrss would cost taxpayers up to $93 trillion, which the Foundation for Education pointed out at nearly $600,000 per U.S. household was “truly astounding.”
Yet “most Americans aren’t even willing to sacrifice $50 a month to mitigate climate change,” the report said.
The CEI results sampled 1,200 registered voters on environmental issues, and the margin of error was 2.83%.
Lots of people, “a strong majority,” said they were somewhat or very concerned about climate change, FEE documented.
But the key question was, “How much of your own money would you be willing to personally spend each month to reduce the impact of climate change?”
Nothing, said 35%.
Another 15% said they give up $1-$10 and 6% said $11-$20.
