BWAHAHAHAHAHA! Bitch McConnell is gonna put the Green New Deal up for a vote in the Senate and the Dimocrats are pissed because they don’t want to go on record as supporting the legislation.
“The Green New Deal is the only way to save the Earth from utter extinction. If you keep standing in the way, troglodytes, we are doomed.”
“Ok, Democrats, let’s vote on your non-binding resolution.”
“Why are you sabotaging our legislation!?”
If you think this is an exaggeration of the illogical position of Democrats and their Green New Deal, I give you Sen. Ed Markey.
For the record Senator Markey (Dingbat Taxachusetts) is one of the co-sponsors of the proposed legislation.
This week, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said he’s was going to put the Green New Deal up for a vote. Or, here’s how the Associated Press put it: “McConnell wields Green New Deal as bludgeon against Dems.” Now, of course, such a vote would be a political stunt; because the Green New Deal, introduced last week by Markey and Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, is, in many ways, a political stunt.
“This isn’t a new Republican trick,” tweeted Markey, who co-sponsored this non-binding resolution that will save the planet, “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.”
It’s kind of ironic hearing a Dimocrat bitching about not having a “national conversation” after the way they rammed Obummercare through Congress, but remember, the rules are different for Dimocrats and they can count on their propagandists in the Fake News Media to run cover for them.
What are Republicans “rushing” exactly? If Sens. Elizabeth Warren, Kirsten Gillibrand, and Cory Booker felt comfortable endorsing it, and thus making the plan part of their presidential aspirations, why shouldn’t the entire Senate vote on it, as well?
How exactly would a vote “sabotage” or “kill” a Green New Deal that is nothing but a resolution recognizing “the duty of the Federal Government to create a Green New Deal.” It’s a “show vote,” on purpose. It’s an affirmation of intent. Does Markey not support securing the future of his own prospective bill? Why did he file it? And how exactly could the co-authors of the Green New Deal not be organized? They’ve been scaremongering Americans about impending catastrophic climate change for the past 30 years, at least.
Moreover, Markey’s cosponsor, Ocasio-Cortez, has already written a broad proposal of policy aims that, in all honesty, would probably be the only way to achieve the goals set forth by Democrats. Has anyone asked Markey whether he believes Ocasio-Cortez’s wish list are worthy goals?
Of course not because that would be practicing real journalism.
Much of media coverage of the Green New Deal informs readers that climate scientists have warned that terrifying events will befall us soon if we don’t act immediately. What they don’t tell us is that anyone with even a rudimentary grasp of economic reality understands that a state-run economy that coerces Americans to generate 100 percent of their energy through inefficient and expensive renewable sources within 10 years would trigger a cratering of the US economy.
Which is pretty much what the Dimocrats want. It’s easier to implement a socialist dictatorship when everyone is poor, except for the ruling elite.
Sean Spicier (parody tweeter) had a good tweet about this.
Looking forward to watching Democrats filibuster the Green New Deal
