McConnell Plans To Bring Green New Deal To Senate Vote

‘Brilliant!’ Trump supports Democrats’ Green Dream to ‘eliminate all planes, cars, cows & military’

He noted that the core of the Green New Deal is moving to a zero-carbon energy system within ten years, which would decimate many industries related to oil and gas production.

He said Ocasio-Cortez does not support some of the more outlandish left-wing proposals, which were saved before they were taken off her website.

The climate measure is already supported by at least five senators seeking the Democratic nomination for president: Cory Booker of New Jersey, Kirsten Gillibrand of New York, Kamala Harris of California, Elizabeth Warren of MA and Amy Klobuchar of Minnesota.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) announced Tuesday that he'll bring up progressives' widely mocked Green New Deal for a vote.

That's the plan by newcomer Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., and Sen. Her chief of staff, Saikat Chakrabarti, tweeted that they had worked on the Green New Deal "in collaboration with a bunch of groups and offices over the course of the last month. The green dream, or whatever they call it, nobody knows what it is, but they're for it, right?" she said.

The name, Green New Deal, references the New Deal of the 1930s that President Franklin Roosevelt implemented to aid Americans suffering in the Great Depression by embarking on huge government-led infrastructure projects.




But the numbers are growing. "We will be that lantern on the shore", Ocasio-Cortez said.

"Republicans don't want to debate climate change, they only want to deny it", Markey said in a statement. Ocasio-Cortez's spokesman also sent reporters a memo in which the congresswoman's office contradicted the resolution by taking positions on agricultural emissions, nuclear energy and air travel that did not appear in the formal legislation. Ed Markey, and quickly became the subject of harsh criticisms. The Resolution would mean an end to "American energy" as well as "a little thing called air travel", - said the President on Monday evening in the town on the border with Mexico.

"There's another victim of the Green New Deal, it's ice cream".

Sen. John Barrasso, R-Wyo., chairman of the Environment and Public Works Committee, however, called the plan "raw deal" that would drive "a stake into the heart of our economy", Politico reported.

On "America's Newsroom" Tuesday, Hilton said Trump wasn't criticizing the literary merits of the proposal, but it's policies, which Hilton said would have "devastating" real-world consequences.
