During last night’s Democrat debate, Joe Biden was asked a tough question:
“As president, would you be willing to sacrifice some of that growth, even knowing potentially that it could displace thousands or hundreds of thousands of blue-collar worked in the interest of transitioning to the greener economy?”
Without taking a breath, Biden confirmed he would,
“The answer is yes. The answer is yes because the opportunity for those workers to transition to high paying jobs is real.”
Ted Cruz had the perfect response to Joe:
Keep in mind Trump stands in stark contrast to Biden's outlook as the economy underneath our president continues to grow, and new jobs are created every day!

Fox News has more to say:
Former Vice Preisdent Joe Biden made clear at Thursday night’s Democratic presidential primary debate that he’d sacrifice economic growth due to a boom in oil and natural gas production and potentially risk displacing hundreds of thousands of blue-collar workers in order to combat climate change.
Moderator Tim Alberta asked: "Three consecutive American presidents have enjoyed stints of explosive economic growth due to a boom in oil and natural gas production. As president, would you be willing to sacrifice some of that growth, even knowing potentially that it could displace thousands, maybe hundreds of thousands of blue-collar workers in the interest of transitioning to that greener economy?”
“The answer is yes,” the former vice president said.
But Biden -- the front-runner in national polling in the Democratic nomination race -- emphasized that “the opportunity for those workers to transition to high-paying jobs ... is real.”
“We’re the only country in the world that’s taken great, great crises and turned them into enormous opportunities,” Biden added.
Townhall also commented:
ormer Vice President Joe Biden stated he is more than willing to "sacrifice" the ongoing economic growth, resulting in the displacement of thousands of blue collar workers, in order to shift towards a more green economy.
"The answer is yes, because the opportunity, the opportunity for those workers to transition to high paying jobs, as Tom said, is real," Biden said during the sixth Democratic presidential debate on Thursday.
"We’re the only country that’s taken great, great crises and turned them into enormous opportunities. I’ve met with the union leaders. For example, we should in fact be making sure right now that every new building built is energy contained, that it doesn’t leak energy, that in fact we should be providing tax credits for people to be able to make their homes turn to solar power," he continued.
