Life in the Green New Deal 'Paradise'? Nasty, Brutish, and Short. | WHAT REALLY HAPPENED


Life in the Green New Deal 'Paradise'? Nasty, Brutish, and Short.

Not long ago, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (@AOC — one of the best comedy accounts on Twitter) released (then retracted, and then disclaimed) the "Justice Democrats'" Green New Deal FAQ. (See @AOC and the Magic Choo-Choo.)

The GND's promises just didn't add up, but mere arithmetic often doesn't discourage a true believer. I started pondering what life would be like under the Green New Deal. (This is Part One of a two-part series. In the second part, we'll consider what can really be done to make transportation better.)

Welcome to the Green Paradise
The phone rings with its piercing "I don't care if you set do-not-disturb" ring. You wake, heart pounding. It's Mom.

"Mom? What happened? What's wrong?"

"It's your grandmother, honey. She's in the National Health — she fell and broke her hip."

"Oh my God! What are they doing?"

"Right now, they're keeping her comfortable. The Surgery Board meets today at 10, but she's 86, and, well..." her voice trails off.
