because it blew up in her face.
She did Stupid all by herself.
There still working on convincing us that this is what we want.
Because they screwed up and put their actual proposals on it. Certainly some erstwhile person managed to save a copy of it. Of course her henchpersons have already declared those to be “doctored” copies...............
This communist does not need any help in looking stupid
It would have been fun, to see a Saturday night Live type satire of Ocasio-Cortez and her green new deal.
Of course the liberal “comedians” at such programs, would never make fun of her.
Because her job and diet cause her to pass a lot of gas?
Dilbert would have been better...
The guy was scary!
Maybe the Russians *dun dun dun* hacked the website and put the document there to make her look bad.
Boeing went WTF
I’m convinced someone on her staff is being paid to undermine her since she seems unwilling to take direction from her party leaders. Watch for more of the same kind of sabotage if I’m right.
RE: She did Stupid all by herself.

The Sierra Club, The Natural Resources Defense Council, the Environmental Defense Fun and the Audobon Society.

So, she’s got a SLEW OF INDIVIDUALS and GROUPS ( including Nobel Prize winners ) behind her, why take it down?
You are earning your paychecks from the Deep State and me!
Destroy the evil America and Trump with your Green Dreams, aka nightmares.
Im in love with those eyes. Does our Congressional Health insurance cover that operation? If so, where do I sign up?
“Silly” how about - barking moon-bat, stark raving lunatic proposals.
My DW is fairly non-political, but when shown the document, she questioned the sanity of the writer....
I dunno... I’m kinda intrigued by the idea of underwater high-speed trans Atlantic choo-choo trains.
The floating bridge idea is... ...innovative, as is the submarine vacuum tunnel concept. Both sound very Roddenberry to me. Many strong engineering problems would have to be solved — at vast expense. Plenty good government jobs (or contractor jobs: just as good) would really spin off many fine new imaginative products.
I think she’s an Occasional Genius!
/sarc — for the humor-challenged.
I hope she stays in the public eye and
