Letter: Sen. Lee has no solution to our problems

(Courtesy of CSPAN) Sen. Mike Lee uses an image of Ronald Reagan on a velociraptor to denounce the Green New Deal.

A few days ago, Sen. Mike Lee said: “The solution to climate change is not this unserious resolution … The solution to so many of our problems at all times and in all places is to fall in love, get married and have some kids. ... Problems of human imagination are not solved by more laws, they’re solved by more humans.”

Lee equated his statements to the more babies we have the more innovative ideas we will have in the future when they grow up.

I have to agree with the senator, as there is no chance he will come up with any idea that will benefit us today. However, the best response to his rambling statement on the Senate floor with pictorial displays was given by Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.

“If this guy can be a senator, you can be anything.”
