McConnell to call Senate vote on Democrats' Green New Deal

Green New Deal Set for Senate Vote in GOP Swipe at Ocasio-CortezMore

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. An outdated and since taken down FAQ on AOC's website confused things by promising economic security for those "unwilling to work".

"I've noted with great interest the Green New Deal, and we're going to be voting on that in the Senate", McConnell said at a Senate Republican news conference.

"We set a goal to get to net zero, rather than zero emissions, in 10 years because we aren't sure we'll be able to fully get rid of farting cows and airplanes that fast", a version of the document hosted by NPR reads.

But by bringing the measure up for a vote, McConnell will force Democrats to take a position on a plan that is increasingly a target of attacks by President Trump and other Republicans.

Markey's office responded with a statement chastising McConnell for threatening to call a vote on the resolution "without committee hearings, expert testimony, or a true national debate". More than 80 percent of registered voters supported the concept of a Green New Deal in a December poll by Yale and George Mason universities.

Democratic Sens. Cory Booker (N.J.), Kamala Harris (Calif.), Elizabeth Warren (Mass.) and Kirsten Gillibrand (N.Y.) - who are running for president in 2020 - have all endorsed a resolution in support of the Green New Deal introduced by Sen.

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.

"It is way out of the mainstream of the American public to the point that it is scary", Barrasso said.

"I think it is very important for the Democrats to press forward with their Green New Deal", he tweeted. She has opted to frame it as one of potentially many anti-climate-change proposals. "The green dream, or whatever they call it, nobody knows what it is, but they're for it, right?" she said.

McConnell sending Trump a clear signal is significant, as the Senate leader refused to let any legislation onto the Senate floor during the shutdown without a guarantee that Trump would sign it.
