Green New Deal co-author upset Mitch McConnell wants to vote on it

February 13, 2019

  Last week the Democrats unveiled the Green New Deal which would set America back a couple of hundred years or so and yesterday Mitch McConnell agreed to bring the legislation to the floor for a vote in the Senate.

  You would think, if they were serious about saving the earth from global warming, the Democrats would be thrilled by the opportunity to pass a major part of their agenda but they are not. In fact Ed Markey, who cosponsored the legislation, is rather upset by the turn of events. Here is what he Tweeted out today about this:

And here is another one:

  So now voting on a piece of legislation is “silencing your voice” and that seems 180 degrees off to me. And when Ed Markey says that this will not allow people to debate this issue what he is really saying is the Democrats had no intention of passing this legislation but wanted instead to use it as a political issue for the 2020 election. That tells us all we need to know about how serious the Democrats are about this issue.
