Rush Limbaugh: Sen. McConnell Calling Dems' Bluff With Green New Deal Vote

Posted February 15, 2019

The bill has 67 co-sponsors in the House, where Democrats are in the majority, and 11 in the Senate, where Republicans outnumber Democrats. "Now that is what the American people hate about Congress - the pointless partisan games". Republicans oppose the resolution.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell walks to the Senate floor in Washington, D.C., on January 31. "The first question Republicans should answer is: What is their answer on climate change?".

Democrats in the Senate say they welcome Majority Leader Mitch McConnell's plan to force them into hard votes on the Green New Deal.

"I've noted with great interest the Green New Deal, and we're going to be voting on that in the Senate, give everybody an opportunity to go on record and see how they feel about the Green New Deal", McConnell said.

"My constituents are obviously very concerned about this notion that we are somehow going to transition over the course of 10 years here to an economy that is entirely run on green energy", Cheney said during a Natural Resources subcommittee hearing.

It's no wonder McConnell seemed uncharacteristically gleeful when he said he'd be bringing the Green New Deal to the Senate for a vote. Ocasio-Cortez subsquently paired up with Markey to begin working on the resolution.

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". Five of the declared candidates for the party's presidential nomination have signed on as co-sponsors of the measure in the Senate: Kirsten Gillibrand of New York, Kamala Harris of California, Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts, Cory Booker of New Jersey and Amy Klobuchar of Minnesota.

While backing of the far-left proposal will ultimately improve their liberal bona fides and their support from the Democratic base, the support of the plan will undoubtedly be the target of attacks during the general election.

At a rally Monday night in El Paso, Trump mocked the Green New Deal, saying, "It sounds like a high school term paper that got a low mark".

Spearheaded by Ocasio-Cortez, of NY, and Democratic Sen. Ed Markey (D-MA).The plan goes far beyond energy to urge national health care coverage and job guarantees, as well as high-quality education and affordable housing.

"Don't let Mitch McConnell fool you: this is nothing but an attempt to sabotage the movement we are building".

Sen. Brian Schatz (D-Hawaii) criticized Republicans on Tuesday for pledging to hold what is essentially a show vote on the Green New Deal, given that they have not advanced any serious efforts to address climate change. The entire goal of this move is to stop the back and forth nonsense that could end up doing more harm to Republicans in the public eye and McConnell sees that.
