Bernie Sanders Energy Plan Will Destroy Modern Medicine (Guest: Dr. Jane Orient)

September 10, 2019

Bernie Sanders energy plan and the Green New Deal are expensive and unrealistic. Both would set back modern society, leaving us with energy shortfalls, in economic decline, and undermine the nation's health care and emergency response systems.

The multi-trillion dollar energy proposal being pushed by Bernie Sanders will cost trillions of dollars but produce just a fraction of the energy we currently need. These plans will increase unemployment, reduce our standards of living and will wreak environmental havoc while doing nothing to prevent climate change.
