Sen. Kamala Harris joined nearly every other candidate for the Democratic Party’s 2020 presidential nomination in endorsing the progressive disaster known as the “Green New Deal.”
The California Democrat co-sponsored the bill introduced by Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez on Thursday and was almost instantly mocked for it.

The radical legislation proposed by Ocasio-Cortez and Democratic Senator Ed Markey aims to achieve net-zero greenhouse gas emissions in 10 years, effectively eliminating all fossil fuel energy production as well as nuclear energy, calls for basically rebuilding every building in America and making air travel unnecessary.
And that’s just for starters.
The AOC/Markey Green New Deal promises much more than net-zero emissions. It promises jobs, justice, health care, education, — all that, plus ‘economic security for all who are unable or unwilling to work.’ https://t.co/gUgKGNgfO8 pic.twitter.com/mjllxMhsJJ

Several senators and Democratic presidential hopefuls, including Cory Booker of New Jersey, Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts, New York’s Kirsten Gillibrand and former Texas Rep. Beto O’Rourke, endorsed or expressed support for the “Green New Deal.”
If we want to live in a world with clean air and water, we have to take real action to combat climate change now. I’m proud to join @RepAOC and @SenMarkey on a #GreenNewDeal resolution to fight for our planet and our kids’ futures.

The open support coming in from many of the Democrat Party’s presidential candidates, and potential candidates, signals a ‘remarkable’ shift to the far-left as noted by New Time’s Shane Goldmacher.

The same support was not initially offered by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi who appeared to dismiss the proposal by the freshman New York lawmaker and self-proclaimed Democratic socialist.
“It will be one of several or maybe many suggestions that we receive,” Pelosi said Thursday “The green dream or whatever they call it, nobody knows what it is, but they’re for it right?”

As the framework of the plan to combat global warming was released Thursday, it was roundly condemned on social media.
1) By the end of the Green New Deal resolution (and accompanying fact sheet) I was laughing so hard I nearly cried. If a bunch of GOPers plotted to forge a fake Democratic bill showing how bonkers the party is, they could not have done a better job. It is beautiful. #GreenNewDeal

Now that we see what the Green New Deal is, anyone who takes it seriously cannot be taken seriously

Just read the @AOC “Green New Deal.” What a doozy.
Reads like a poorly-argued paper from a college sophomore after years of mindless left-wing indoctrination.
The Socialist-from-the-Bronx-who-is-actually-from-Westchester is a textbook combination of lunacy, idiocy & fantasy.

Despite Harris claiming she was “proud” to co-sponsor the disastrous plan, she quickly became the target of mockery on social media as many questioned the wisdom of a presidential candidate endorsing a socialist’s dream bill.
Then can you explain what you plan to do with all the cows? We could send them to Cow Fart Island, I guess, but they’ll still be ruining the environment. Should we launch them into space instead? Please advise. https://t.co/UyZMaSCeFI

I’ll take “How to torpedo your presidential hopes” for $200, Alex. There is no way that you truly believe that the majority of the country wants this

You must not really want to be President

Well, we now have Warren and Harris out of the fight, with Shultz splitting the Dem vote. 2020 should be hilarious.
