Mitch McConnell Considers Putting Green New Deal Up For Vote, Sen. Ed Markey Melts Down

Yeah, so this happened

McConnell to bring Green New Deal to vote, forcing 2020 Dems to go on record on radical plan

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said Tuesday that the Senate will vote on the Green New Deal – endorsed by nearly all top 2020 Democratic presidential candidates – in an effort to force Democrats to officially go on the record for the radical proposal.

“I’ve noted with great interest the Green New Deal,” McConnell told reporters. “And we’re going to be voting on that in the Senate. We’ll give everybody an opportunity to go on record and see how they feel about the Green New Deal.” (snip)

But McConnell’s move to bring the plan to a vote on the Senate floor will be a key test for Democratic presidential candidates such as Sens. Kamala Harris, Cory Booker, Elizabeth Warren, Kirsten Gillibrand, who are running on the progressive platform in 2020.

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.

This should be good. As I wondered yesterday “Democrats to complain that this is a “stunt” soon, as they really do not want to go on record with this resolution.” I’ve also Tweeted and commented many times that Cocaine Mitch should force Dems to go on the record in the Senate. And, here we go

In other words, forcing Democrats to go on the record with a vote, one in which they will get to give short statements prior to, is a “stunt.” How is allowing a vote “silencing your voice”? Remember, Markey isn’t just any old Democrat Senator: he’s the main leader on the Senate side for the GND. Seriously, why would he submit the resolution in the Senate, just like AOC did in House, if you didn’t want a vote on it?
