Have to vote on it, it’s an emergency!
Via Daily Wire:
Democrats are panicking after Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said on Tuesday that Republicans intend to allow a vote on the Democrats’ massive government takeover, known as the “Green New Deal.”
“I’ve noted with great interest the Green New Deal,” McConnell said. “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.”
Democratic Sen. Ed Markey, who jointly introduced the Green New Deal last week with socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, claimed that McConnell allowing a vote on the bill was Republicans’ way of secretly “sabotaging” it.
“Don’t let Mitch McConnell fool you: this is nothing but an attempt to sabotage the movement we are building,” Markey tweeted. “He wants to silence your voice so Republicans don’t have to explain why they are climate change deniers. McConnell wants this to be the end, this is just the beginning.”
“This isn’t a new Republican trick,” Markey continued. “By rushing a vote on the #GreenNewDeal resolution, Republicans want to avoid a true national debate & kill our efforts to organize. We’re having the first national conversation on climate change in a decade. We can’t let Republicans sabotage it.”
