Howard Schultz Gives the Dumbest Elected Official a Much Needed Reality Check

Howard Schultz, the former head of Starbucks and possible presidential candidate, came down on AOC and Democrats who believe in the Green New Deal. Schultz claims the Green New Deal is “unrealistic.”

“Going back to the Green New Deal, in the Green New Deal there is a proposal that says that by 2030 every building in America is going to be transformed to clean energy. Now, that’s a well-intentioned idea but it’s never going to happen.”

“Let’s propose things that are true, that are honest, that are sincere, and that are realistic.”

“There’s nothing free in America,” Schultz said. “So these proposals about Medicare for all, and free college, and a government job for everybody, that is not free. So someone is going to have to pay for that and that means that taxes for everyone is going to have to go up or someone’s going to have to wave a magic wand and do something that doesn’t exist but that has to be paid for by somebody and the difficulty in trying to pay for any of that is we’re sitting with twenty-two trillion dollars of debt that has to be addressed. So, it’s not realistic,” Schultz added.

Schultz is considering running as a self-described “centrist independent.” His message at Purdue is that Americans deserve better than the current political climate.

“I am considering a run because members of both parties are not yet doing the job they were elected to do,” said Schultz to the several hundred people gathered inside Purdue’s Fowler Hall.

To hear Schultz tell it, the American people are caught in the middle of an ugly political tug of war with neither side doing much good.

“The American people are exhausted by it,” said Schultz. “They want and deserve something new and something better.”

I wonder if AOC will come back at him or will this be another case like Ben Shapiro where she is not up to it.
