SEAN HANNITY (HOST): This is where the Democratic Party is going. I mean, (Rep. Alexandria) Ocasio-Cortez, the Green New Deal. You know what the estimated cost of this is? $40 trillion in its first 10-15 years. Do you know what the goal is? To remove America from all fossil fuels by the year 2030. It's an unmitigated disaster. It would result in poverty, it would result in lost jobs, lost productivity, GDP, we wouldn't have the money for any of this. Just like her $32 trillion Medicare-For-All policies. But nobody in the media is going over how absolutely cost-prohibitive all of this is. When has government ever done anything, right, that instills confidence in you?
