Mitch McConnell to bring green new deal up for a vote

February 12, 2019

  By now you have heard about the green new deal that Democrats are rallying around. While this radical plan has been endorsed by most of the Democrats who are running for President, as well as some of the Democratic voters, it has met with quite a bit of ridicule by the right. And for good reason.

  Well, Mitch McConnell has decided to call the Democrats’ bluff and will bring this bill up for a vote in the Senate. Here is more:

The Washington Post’s Robert Costa tweeted Tuesday morning: “McConnell is considering taking up the green new deal for a vote in the Senate as a way to rattle Sen Dems, per a McConnell aide here at the [Capitol].”

Mitch McConnell has now confirmed the report:

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) confirmed Tuesday afternoon that he will bring a vote on the Green New Deal, telling to reporters on Capitol Hill: “I’ve noted with great interest the Green New Deal. And we’re going to be voting on that in the Senate. Give everybody an opportunity to go on record and see how they feel about the Green New Deal.” Read Breitbart News’ original report below. 

  I think this is a fantastic move, let’s get it on record exactly how many Democrats really believe this radical plan is a good idea. It is easy for the Democratic Presidential candidates and leftist voters to claim they support this measure when they know it will not pass, but it is altogether different when you have to actually vote on it.

  I believe many of the Democrats are claiming to support this legislation to placate their base and this vote will force them to make a decision to either show their base they are serious or to show the rest of America they are not radicals and that was a vote they were anticipating they would never have to take.
