The “Green New Deal” failed its vote, to just begin the debate on the resolution, in the Senate 0-57!
That’s ZERO in favor of this whacky socialist proposal.
But there are a hundred senators, you may recall. So why are there only 57 votes?
Because 43 of our esteemed guardians of democracy (senators) are complete and utter cowards…, that’s why.
They chose to not vote “yea” or “nay,” but voted “present” instead.
The “Green New Deal,” is a sweeping democrat proposal, dreamed up by some of the more liberal and socialist leaning members of The House of Representatives, for dealing with climate change, and a favorite topic of discussion of the current democrat presidential candidates.
NONE of them chose to go on the record here in the senate and support this socialist dream scenario gone wild.
Not Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, not Sen. Amy Klobuchar, not Sen. Elizabeth Warren, not Sen. Cory Booker, not Sen. Kamala Harris, and not even Sen. Bernie Sanders could muster up the courage to cover the bill for the checks their mouths have been writing regarding “The Green New Deal” while on the campaign trail.
Like I said…, cowards, and misrepresentative shysters.
“The Green New Deal” is really less about climate change and more of a “radical, top-down, socialist makeover of the entire U.S. economy,” as described by Sen. Mitch McConnell, R-KY.
In keeping with their usual incomprehensible ramblings, the democrats, led by Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-NY, called the vote a “sham vote” that aimed to draw attention away from a real debate on the consequences of climate change.”
Ooooooooookay. So let me get this straight. This vote to begin debate on “The Green New Deal,” which is a proposal to deal with climate change, is a vote “aimed to draw attention away from a real debate on the consequences of climate change,” according to comrade Schumer?
“Climate change is an existential threat, and confronting it requires bold action,” Sen. Kamala Harris said in a statement following the vote.”
I guess voting “for” the “Green New Deal” wasn’t a “bold” enough action for her.
“Today’s #GreenNewDeal vote is a partisan stunt to side-step needed debate on climate action, and give Republicans cover to put oil lobby checks over our kids,… I don’t play ball with bad-faith farces. ” Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand tweeted after the vote.
My first question is “what the hell are you talking about?”
My next comment, Sen. Gillibrand, would echo my reply to comrade Schumer. So you’re saying this vote to begin debate on “The Green New Deal,” is a “partisan stunt to side-step needed debate on climate action…?”
“[McConnell’s] stunt is backfiring and it’s becoming clearer and clearer to the American people that the Republican Party is way behind the times on clean energy and that Democrats are the party willing to take action,” added Senator Schumer, who also asked, “… What’s the Republican Party proposal? Is it more coal?”
If I may…, most conservative Americans believe that even if humans are capable of affecting the global climate, there’s not a damn thing we (The United States alone) can do about it now that is going to make one bit of difference. We, of course, would prefer “clean” energy, and we want to move in that direction, but not a pace that would sacrifice our standard of living and our economic health.
How’s that for a response?
Isn’t that entirely reasonable?
CNN chimed in with an incredibly insightful observation when “reporter” Ted Barrett stated that the “Green New Deal” stalled in the Senate after, “largely political debate.”
You don’t say Ted? Political debate in the Senate? Really? Who’d a thunk it?
Sen. John Cornyn, R-TX, correctly pointed out that “The Green New Deal,” “is a “radical environmental policy that also includes Medicare for all, free college, and guaranteed jobs.” “You might as well throw in free beer and pizza!” he added.
Some administrative workers in the Senate claim to have heard Mr. Schumer whisper to his friends, “Hey…, ya…, we could spring for the pizza and beer if that’s what it would take.”
Just more WINNING.
And I’m not getting tired of it yet!
