Dems See Green New Deal Which They Won’t Pass Yielding Gains Or Something

Democrats totally see the Green New Deal gaining support despite the GOP bad-mouthing it

Democrats see Green New Deal yielding gains despite GOP attacks

Democrats are sensing political gains from the Green New Deal heading into Election Day, even as Republicans deride the progressive proposal and some Democratic candidates slink away from it.

The fight over the proposal — what’s in it and who supports it — has played out on the debate stage over the past month, with Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden showing he’s as eager to cast his climate plan as his own as President Trump is to tie the Green New Deal and Biden to socialism.

The battle underscores how less than two years after it was introduced in Congress, few voters fully understand what is and isn’t in the 14-page resolution introduced by Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) and Sen. Ed Markey (D-Mass.).

The resolution lacks any legislative language to enact its proposals, let alone ban meat or air travel as Republicans have suggested, but some Democratic congressional candidates have nonetheless distanced themselves from it as Republicans land some blows with their attacks.

But where Democrats sense success is in energizing voters around a massive investment in clean energy — a topic that unites the party and offers a pathway to growth amid an economic downturn.

Yes, so the nation can have rolling blackouts, planned and unplanned.

A Yale University poll last week found that 64 percent of voters expressed support for the Green New Deal.

That figure is in line with the share of voters who say they support Biden’s climate plan, which he has stressed won’t transition the U.S. away from fossil fuels as quickly as Green New Deal backers would prefer.

If this was true, then why has there been no vote on the GND in the House? In fact, there have been no committee hearings or anything on it. It was introduced, dumped in committee, and then shelved. Even AOC has not called for action on it. In the Senate, Mitch McConnell forced a vote on it and every single Democrat voted “present”, including the GND’s main sponsor, Ed Markey. If it’s so popular, why have Dems done nothing?

Markey told The Hill that the proposal has helped Democrats on several fronts.

“The Green New Deal has transformed the national discussion around the climate crisis. It has galvanized a movement of young, diverse activists who have made climate change an electoral powerhouse, and climate action a winning issue. We are seeing progressive candidates running, and winning, on their support for a Green New Deal,” Markey said in a statement.

“On Election Day, this movement of young climate activists will be the difference for Joe Biden and candidates up and down the ballot,” he added.

Yes, the same you climate cultists who refuse to practice what they preach. It’s just more spreading awareness while actually doing nothing. But, then, do most Warmists ever take action in their own lives?

    I went to Penn Hospital yesterday for my quarterly battery of lung tests. How lovely that crap is. Anyway, on the way home about 4pm we ran into a gaggle of “mostly peacefulâ„¢ ” joggers screaming their lungs out about black lives and waiving signs, smashing windows and beating cars with bats. My wife was fear stricken.

    I said not to worry and removed my Taurus PT99 from the arm rest as I explained these joggers were just Biden supporters. My wife agreed they were achieving the opposite. Of course she got nervous when they got closer to the car. Thankfully, since I had to carry oxygen etc. I was driving my Audi Q9 not her Bentley. I can imagine how a Bentley would attract joggers like a flame attracts moths.

    Fortunately they did not approach my car any further than about 50 feet. That avoided a lot of shootin’ and ‘splainin’. Still scared the bejeezers out of June. She never saw raving, screaming, flailing joggers in their natural habitat before.

    If Biden wins this is all that will be left of America. Rioting joggers and bitchin’ white Karens.

    The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Wednesday, shows that 52% of Likely U.S. Voters approve of President Trump’s job performance. Forty-seven percent (47%) disapprove.

    The latest figures include 41% who Strongly Approve of the job Trump is doing and 41% who Strongly Disapprove. This gives him a Presidential Approval Index rating of 0.

    He is climbing in the polls. That thar ZERO used ta be 10-12-15 to the minus for the Orange Man. Now it be zero. Ima thinking its time to tune up the fat lady and get out a fork, That guy hidin in his basement is gonna be goin to trial rather than goin to the Inaugration.
