McConnell: We will vote on the 'Green New Deal'

McConnell told reporters on Tuesday that he did intend to call for a vote, saying that he wanted "to see how [Senate Democrats] feel about the Green New Deal".

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell announced Tuesday he'll bring Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez's signature climate proposal to a vote on the Senate floor - a move created to put Democrats on the spot.

"I've noted with great interest the Green New Deal".

Republicans largely remained silent on the Green New Deal late previous year when Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) and a cadre of left-leaning Democrats began demanding a select committee in the House devoted to the proposal.

Directly after his speech in El Paso, Trump got a peppered answer by Ocasio-Cortez: "Ah Yes, a man who cannot even read the Briefings, which are written in full sentences, provides literary criticism of a Resolution of the house of representatives", back wedged to the 29-Year-old via Twitter.

It called for a 100 percent reduction in fossil fuel emissions by 2030.

"This is now a voting issue across the country", Markey said.

An outline and FAQ for the proposal includes several jaw-dropping action items, including the eventual elimination of "necessary" air travel and "economic security to all those who are unable or unwilling to work". One of the best was the acknowledgment that even the authors' best efforts would not be enough to get rid of "farting cows" and air travel within 10 years. While Democrats did not specify a price tag, some Republicans predict it would cost in the trillions of dollars. A woman described a date with Ansari, which she said ended with him pressuring her into performing oral sex.

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. Edward Markey, both Democrats, isn't binding and has drawn harsh criticism from President Donald Trump and other Republicans.

Democratic Sens. Elizabeth Warren of MA and Cory Booker of New Jersey, who have both announced their bids for the 2020 nomination, have signed on as Senate co-sponsors of the Green New Deal.
