Kimberly Strassel reads the Green New Deal: ‘I was laughing so hard I nearly cried’

We’ve heard plenty of takes on Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s Green New Deal Thursday, and we’ve also learned that 2020 presidential contender Kamala Harris has signed on to co-sponsor it. But we’re still not sure … it’s a genuine House resolution, but people like Dave Weigel are telling us that it shouldn’t be taken literally.

Here’s Hot Air’s John Sexton with a summary.

Wall Street Journal columnist Kimberly Strassel read the Green New Deal and says she was nearly in tears laughing by the end of it.

Sure, it would be “impossible” to build a wall on the southern border, but install a high-speed rail network that would replace air travel and do it in a decade? Sure. Hey, remember when President Barack Obama said part of the 2009 stimulus bill would be used to build a high-speed rail network joining the country? And how he promised to convert the entire White House fleet of cars to electric vehicles within one year of becoming president? Good times.

Has this hot mess been restored to Ocasio-Cortez’s website yet so more people can laugh at it?
