The Green New Deal Policy - Political Parties and Stances

The Green New Deal, a proposal originally championed by Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, includes a plan to sweepingly modernize and adjust US infrastructure to meet environmental standards. If passed, the bill would funnel billions of dollars into updating infrastructure; $34.85 billion would be allocated towards water infrastructure projects, $150 billion towards broadband infrastructure, and $75 billion for transportation infrastructure. Polling shows that the Green New Deal is overwhelmingly popular among Democratic voters (87% support) while just a minority (28%) of Republicans support it.

Holtz-Eakin, a former director of the Congressional Budget Office estimates that the Green New Deal could cost upwards of $50-$90 million.
