She’s one of the most visible and outspoken members of the Democratic Congress. She’s suggested banning motorcycles, trucks, donating her brain to science, and lowering the pay of our military members.

During last week’s budget planning session, Little Lady Leningrad brought up her “Green New Deal” program again, and suggested that a new tax on beef and steak products be levied in order to pay for the construction of twenty-five new wind farms across the country. According to her estimates, the farms will generate enough waste-free energy to power several large cities at a fraction of the current cost. But at what price?

And get ready to sacrifice Sunday’s church change for Taco Tuesdays.
