Senate Democrats Move to Block Green New Deal


(CNN)The Senate will vote Tuesday to take up the Green New Deal, the progressives’ prescription to battle climate change, but it is expected to be blocked by Democrats, who support many of the ideas in the plan but believe Republicans are trying to score political points by forcing a quick vote on the nascent proposal.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, a Kentucky Republican, has made clear he is pushing the vote to put Democrats — especially the many in the Senate who are running for president — on the record regarding the controversial plan written by liberal Democratic Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York and Sen. Ed Markey of Massachusetts, which Republicans argue is a socialist manifesto that will destroy the economy.
“I could not be more glad that the American people will have the opportunity to learn precisely where each one of their senators stand on this radical, top-down, socialist makeover of the entire US economy,” McConnell said Monday. “Every American taxpayer will get to learn if their senators support saddling our nation with the astronomical cost of this socialist fantasy — tens and tens of trillions of dollars, a tax burden that would be certain to hurt not just wealthy Americans but the middle class as well.”

    Liberals are hilarious!

    Screaming for decades now, “The end is near…we must do something!”

    Republicans: Great, let’s vote!

    Liberals: “No! You jerks, you can’t do that”.

    This means the end of the world, Jonestown type, alarmism on the warming religion is crap….OR

    Liberals have no courage of their convictions!

    Liberals are acting awful and disgusting either way!

    Stand up and be proud of your dictatorial super state advocacy you libs! Take pride in trying to make us Venezuela!

    Although you are averse to checking into the facts or the details on any subject, I’ll recommend once again that you investigate why the D’s want to block this vote.  Knowledge is Power!

  3. Kevin Scheunemann


    They are adverse because no one wants to admit their radical, totalitarian agenda on the record!

  4. Le Roi du Nord

    So are you saying the reason the D’d gave isn’t a reason, or that you don’t agree with it.  Or did you even take the time to do the research?

    Liberals are all cowards!

    If the world is ending in 12 years because of global warming, they should have been voting yes!

    The world is not ending, an in the end they really have no conviction to do what the liberals are flapping their mouth about!

    At least 4 Democrats had honesty to vote no.

  6. Le Roi du Nord

    “Liberals are all cowards!”

    No k, they aren’t.  You are making stuff up again..

  7. Kevin Scheunemann


    There was a chance to vote the courage of their conviction in their global warming alarmism and they shrunk like violets.

  8. Le Roi du Nord


    You are the last person to question the courage of others.  When you paint yourself into a corner you always hide behind your religious shield.

    Why are they having a vote without a hearing?? And why is McConnell afraid to have a vote on election reform? Me thinks it’s more than for righteous reasons. Awful, just awful.

  10. Pat

    House votes 420-0 for Mueller report to be released to the public. McConnell won’t bring it up for vote in Senate.

  11. Kevin Scheunemann


    Who cars about Mueller report.   there is nothing there.

    Are you one of these liberals persisting in the mindset that WI voters are all dupes of Putin?

    I hope not.

  12. Pat

    84% of the population would like to see the report released. I guess that 84% cares. Why is McConnell afraid of bringing it up for a vote?

  13. Kevin Scheunemann


    Great, release the report, but there is nothing there.

    In a world where Jussie Smollett gets away with the horrendous crap he does, nothing in Mueller report comes close to that disgusting crime.


  14. Pat

    So why is McConnell afraid to bring so many things up for a vote? And yet, he brings up a vote for the Green Deal without even a hearing.
    Awful, just awful.

  15. Kevin Scheunemann

    Trump is going to want this released. He will lean on it for a vote.

    Trump wants to frind it in all the liberals faces for their awful, reprehensible, behavior last 2 years.

  16. Pat

    But why is McConnell afraid to bring so many things up for a vote? And yet, he brings up a vote for the Green Deal without even a hearing.
    Awful, just awful.

  17. Le Roi du Nord


    trump has vowed to a lot of things, but really hasn’t accomplished much.  So don’t hold your breath on seeing the Mueller report in this lifetime….
