(CNSNews.com) - Straight from the "Green New Deal" resolution comes a statement that the federal government has a "duty" to create a social, environmental and economic transformation of the United States so all Americans -- especially "frontline and vulnerable communities" -- achieve "unprecedented levels of prosperity and economic security."

The "Green New Deal" reads in part:

Resolved, That it is the sense of the House of Representatives that—

it is the duty of the Federal Government to create a Green New Deal...to promote justice and equity by stopping current, preventing future, and repairing historic oppression of indigenous communities, communities of color, migrant communities, deindustrialized communities, depopulated rural communities, the poor, low-income workers, women, the elderly, the unhoused, people with disabilities, and youth (referred to in this resolution as "frontline and vulnerable communities").

Note: It appears that one prominent "victim" group was omitted from the list above: LGBT. And "women" alone comprise slightly more than half of the U.S. population, according to the most recent Census.
