Comrades, are you trying to seize control of the means of production?  Then here's great news for overthrowing an evil Capitalist business!

Sanders introduces bill to ban fracking

Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) this week introduced a bill that aims to ban hydraulic fracking. 

The bill was introduced on Tuesday and is titled "a bill to ban the practice of hydraulic fracturing, and for other purposes," according to the Library of Congress, though the text of the legislation was not available on the site. 

Sanders has called for a ban on fracking while campaigning for the Democratic presidential nomination, as has Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.). 

Sanders tweeted about the bill, which he said was also worked on by Sen. Jeff Merkley (D-Ore.) and Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) and Darren Soto (D-Fla.) on Thursday. Merkley was listed as a co-sponsor. 

The tweet included a video of actor Mark Ruffalo talking about a potential federal ban fracking. 

"Mark Ruffalo just spoiled Bernie and AOC's bill to ban fracking," the video said.   ...

Some of those Dem’s with grandiose plans spending trillions in a short amount of time are just plain whacko. A measured approach of 100-200 billion per year over a couple decades is more practical as tech advances. A plan to make every building efficient for example would be a better bang for the buck. Regulations that would not allow an inefficient building to be built another lower cost regulation. These solutions don’t pack political punch though.
