Senate Democrats Introduce Green New Disaster Deal Alternative

They’re trying to avoid voting on the Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez/Ed Markley resolution

SENATE DEMOCRATS INTRODUCE TONED-DOWN ALTERNATIVE TO THE GREEN NEW DEAL

Senate Democrats introduced a toned-down alternative to the Green New Deal as members stress over having to vote on the controversial resolution.

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer and Delaware Sen. Tom Carper introduced a two-page alternative to the Green New Deal resolution Thursday that Republicans are calling a ploy to avoid voting on a “socialist” bill.

“I don’t blame Senate Democrats for trying to duck this big green bomb,” Republican Wyoming Sen. John Barrasso said in a statement. “You can’t escape the fact that nearly every Democrat senator running for president supports it.”

“The Senate will soon be voting on the Green New Deal, and Democrats will have the chance to vote for the radical policies they say they support,” Barrasso said.

Instead of demanding sweeping societal change, the Democrats’ new resolution simply asserts climate change is real, primarily caused by human activity and that Congress “should take immediate action” on it. (it really is that simple.)

Democrats have been floating the idea of voting “present” when the GND comes up for a vote, except for a few like West Virginia’s Joe Manchin, who is a “no vote.” Will all the Senate Democrats running for president and have already thrown their support behind the GND also vote “present”?

Schumer and Carper sent a letter to Republican colleagues Thursday asking them to co-sponsor the resolution. Schumer also took to the Senate floor Wednesday to challenge Republicans to come up with an alternative to the Green New Deal.

Yeah, here’s a better plan: Congress should require all members who support this scam to give up their own use of fossil fuels and live in tiny homes, handwash clothes, no use of ice, etc. BTW, where’s Chuck’s plan?

    Dear Sen. Schumer,

    Yes
    No. Although if you’d stop politicizing it we may be able to ascertain if humans play any
    part and if so how much.
    No. Congress should never take “immediate” action about major policies without a real two
    sided discussion on the pros and cons and without considering all costs carefully.

    Now Senator Schumer, I have three questions for you:

    Are babies in the womb human with DNA?
    Once a baby is born is he not a breathing human being?
    Should Congress take immediate action to save born alive humans?

    Sounds like the esteemed Senator Schumer wants to have something on which his Comrades — the capitalization was intentional — can vote “Aye” without it actually doing anything. I certainly have no problem with the Democrats not doing anything.

    “Do you believe..”. Very scientific. I believe in Santa Claus…

    He doesn’t “believe” it either. For him, it’s just another horse to ride to personal wealth and power. Keeping the minions excited about things helps him do that.

    If Chuckles Schumer really believed in “Climate Change” He should give up all modern conveniences starting with electricity. live without it for the rest of president Trumps terms and then see how he likes clime change then.
