“Green New Deal” is dead on arrival in U.S. Senate

With the Mueller investigations finding no wrong-doing or “no collusion” between the Trump administration and Russia, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R) has set a trap for Senate Democrats, and will force them to vote on Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s “Green New Deal” proposal.

Sen. Ed Markey’s bill will fail in the senate.

It won’t fail because it could not muster enough supporting Democratic votes, but rather because senate Democrats are expected to vote “present,” a perceived cowardly move that would keep them from being forced on the record with the controversial and “radical” piece of legislation.

Trending: Progressive Democrats really do hate Matt Gaetz

Would you believe that Markey will be one of those “present” votes?

Markey’s colleagues in the senate, announced presidential senate candidates Corey Booker, Kamala Harris, Amy Klobuchar, Kirsten Gillibrand, Bernie Sanders, and Elizabeth Warren, have all expressed their support for the GND.

With that said, will these senators stay loyal to the plan?

Moderate-Democratic Senators like Arizona’s Kyrsten Sinema, who have not shown support by Markey’s bill, are expected to vote” No” on the measure.

Texas Senator John Cornyn (R), who could face a tough reelection in 2020, believes that the GND, which is being pushed by “21st century socialists” is “so radical” that “even Democrats are preparing to duck the vote this week.”

This “Green New Deal” or “Green Job Killer” as Florida Senator Rick Scott (R) has calls it, is all-but dead on arrival.
