Critics have long said that Sen. Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., was a little wacky when she decided to run for president.
Now it seems she’s just off her rocker entirely.
Warren was speaking to an organized CNN Town Hall in Jackson, Mississippi when she laid out a utopian plan for America — that would cost taxpayers more than $100,000,000,000,000.00 dollars. Here were the talking points:
- Implementation of the Green New Deal (GND), which proposes getting rid of cows, cars and planes.
- Universal child care.
- Slavery reparations.
- Complete infrastructure rebuild.
- Free preschool.

Vote for her and she promises to start the free handouts right away. There were many questions during the town hall, but none of them address how or who was going to pay for any of it. The pitch sounds lovely to victimhood-obsessed liberals wanting handouts. But the reality is that all of these programs would cost approximately $600,000 per household according to the Congressional Budget Office.
“That’s how we build a future,” Warren said, “and I’ll add one little piece to is and say when you take a look at the Green New Deal, understand this is about building the infrastructure for the 21st century, for a sustainable world.”
The Green New Deal would cost taxpayers approximately $93 trillion. But that’s just the beginning.
Warren wants to invest a whopping $700 billion on universal child care. It’s easy, she said. Just tax the 75,000 richest families in the U.S.
There’s also promises about cash payouts based on America’s history of slavery from 155 years ago.
“I believe it’s time to start the national, full-blown conversation about reparations,” Warren said.

Fox News reports that calculating the cash value of slave labor measured from 1776 to the Civil War’s end could total anywhere from around $6 to $14 trillion.
The terrors of slavery will always be horrific, but would pay it and how is the government supposed to decide who gets it — and should the government even be trusted to redistribute it?
That’s not a concern for Warren.
She’s just eager to buy votes.
