McConnell: Senate to Vote on Green New Deal So Lawmakers Can ‘Go on Record’
We generally speaking are not McConnell fans. He is definitely one of the people in the GOP who has consistantly battled the few actual small government anti-crony people in Congress. (Though he and Rand seem to have a working relationship.) But fair is fair, this is a great move.
The resolution, which was introduced by Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D., N.Y.) and Senator Ed Markey (D., Mass.) on Friday, provides a sweeping list of climate-change- and social-justice-related measures including the refurbishing of every structure in the country with renewable-energy technology and the creation of millions of federally funded jobs in the green-energy sector.
A “frequently asked questions” document that accompanied the resolution referenced the complete elimination of air travel and farting cows. Ocasio-Cortez has since disavowed the FAQ, which was posted on her website, and suggested her political enemies disseminated the document to sabotage the proposal.
