Democrats rolled out their disastrous “Green New Deal” and sent many, like the Wall Street Journal’s Kimberley Strassel, into spasms of disbelief.

The columnist joined countless colleagues in mocking the radical legislation proposed by Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Sen. Ed Markey which calls for net-zero greenhouse gas emissions in 10 years, effectively eliminating all fossil fuel energy production as well as nuclear energy, basically rebuilding every building in America and making air travel unnecessary.

Strassel, a member of The Wall Street Journal’s editorial board, admitted that after reviewing the details shared by Ocasio-Cortez Thursday, she “was laughing so hard I nearly cried.”

Strassel continued her breakdown of the bill in a series of tweets that followed, assessing the plan that earned the support of nearly every Democratic 2020 presidential candidate including Senators Kamala Harris and Elizabeth Warren while getting slammed on social media.

She contended that delivering the necessary equipment and facilities that the deal required for “renewable electricity” would account for more space than all of the entire state of California.

“I would love to understand this logic,” Strassel tweeted after laying out some of the plan’s ambitious proposals, such as electrical charging stations being placed “everywhere” and single-payer health care.

Strassel noted, with tongue firmly planted in cheek, that a “key part” found in the accompanying “fact sheet,” explained exactly why fossil fuels could not immediately be eliminated.

Strassel pointed out that the freshman New York lawmaker, and self-proclaimed Democratic socialist, “is coming after ur air miles and bacon.”

Like many of her journalistic colleagues, Strassel questioned how the socialist dream plan would be funded, sharing the legislation’s incredible solution: print more money.

Ocasio-Cortez and her Democratic “Green New Deal” supporters are truly the gift that keeps on giving.

Strassel’s incredulity was shared by many who endlessly trounced the impossible plan on Twitter.
