Suicide Is Painless, Not for the people of course. The Green New Deal IS the best and fastest way for "Redistribution of Wealth" NOT by the way of Utopia, but by way of sucking the money from the very poor and up the ladder as far as tolerated. The fills the coffers full for the Ruling Class. By the .........Oregon is owned by the Democrats.
Who will benifit, People of Color, only and The Democrats. Remember nothing is Racist , when the Democrats do it.
No American City Has Ever Tried a Climate Justice Tax Like the One Portland Is Launching. What’s the Plan?
It’s a local version of the Green New Deal proposed in 2019 by U.S. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.
In just a few months, the city of Portland will begin investing the proceeds from a groundbreaking new tax on large companies.
No other city in the U.S. has such a tax.
"It's a model for the rest of the nation," Mayor Ted Wheeler said recently. "A beacon and a testament to our community's belief in doing things a different way."
The Portland Clean Energy Community Benefits Fund, or PCEF, will raise as much as $60 million a year from a new tax on big retailers. The money is supposed to supply clean, efficient energy and jobs to people the city has long slighted.
The overarching goals: to provide members of underserved communities with valuable skills while insulating, caulking and tweaking inefficient heating and cooling systems and installing rooftop solar panels at the homes of low-income Portlanders.
The new tax, and the still-developing ideas for how to spend the money, signal a sea change in Portland politics.
At its core, the concept transfers wealth from big corporations such as Walmart to low-income Portlanders of color. It's a local version of the Green New Deal proposed in 2019 by U.S. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.). It's also part of a larger political effort to reshape who calls the shots—and who benefits—in America's whitest big city.

Oh, sure. That's the spin. But groundbreaking? No way and no how!In just a few months, the city of Portland will begin investing the proceeds from a groundbreaking new tax on large companies.

The fact is at its core it's no more than the typical Leftist tax & spend policies solely designed to sound good (hence the nimble & nifty descriptor change from 'carbon' to 'climate justice' to enhance emotional appeal!) & embiggen government
Different, he says? Ha! Ya, it's repackaged but it's just the same old BULLSH-T"It's a model for the rest of the nation," Mayor Ted Wheeler said recently. "A beacon and a testament to our community's belief in doing things a different way."
Let's hope the rest of the nation sees the Mayor's model for what it is: a bait and switch where it's sold as some sort of Mercedes-Benz masterpiece of social engineering but it's really a cash-guzzling poor handling piece of sh!t Yugo
Ooo. That comes out like it's a way dirty low down "Green New STEAL". Can't you be a good girl and at least throw in some scary apocalyptic stuff, like if nation-wide we don't all start taxing & spending like there's no tomorrow there'll BE no tomorrow??
