Green Is Not Good

No green deal for him:
"I read that by 2030 they're suggesting that every building in America becomes clean energy, conforms to clean energy, just to put that in perspective, because it's not realistic, that would mean that between 2,000 and 3,000 buildings a day would have to be reconstructed to conform to what they're saying," Schultz said. "So let's be sensible about what we're suggesting,"

Schultz' comments are likely to further raise tensions between him and Democrats running against Trump. Several Democrats have said Schultz' candidacy would only split the anti-Trump vote and help Trump win re-election in 2020.

Schultz pledged that he would drop out if it becomes clear he can't win and that his campaign is only helping Trump, but said it's too early to make that assessment. In the meantime, he also criticized the "Green New Deal's" employment guarantee provision.

"I don't understand how you're going to give a job for everybody, how you're going to give free college to everybody, how you're going to create clean energy throughout the country in every building of the land," he said. "I think it's immoral to suggest that we can tally up $20, $30, $40, $50 trillion of debt to solve a problem that could be solved in a different way."
Especially when it might not be that big of a problem...
