McConnell strategically put the Green New Deal up to a vote in the Senate. All Republicans and a handful of Democrats voted against it. The remaining 43 Democrats voted "present", either in protest or because they recognized that when your opposition calls for a vote on your own side's proposition, it's a trap.

Nice bit of distraction while blocking the actual report we paid for.

Nah, the distraction is Smollett.

No, the vote was strictly a 'put your money where your mouth is' deal.

You literally can't "put your money" on a non-binding resolution.

It's not even a piece of legislation, it's a list of general ideas.

c'mon, flint: if the dems supported the GND then why not vote for it?

you know why

-----

The Senate voted on the Green New Deal today: 0 Yeas, 57 Nays, and 43 Senators voted PRESENT pic.twitter.com/nvcnXA7zPe

— Leader McConnell (@senatemajldr) March 26, 2019

*

3,000 Americans died in Hurricane Marνa. The Midwest is drowning as we speak. 100s of Flint families were pumped w/ poisoned water & our water infrastructure is imperiled across the country.

GOP thinks this is a joke.

They choose to laugh+delay.
We choose to lead.#GreenNewDeal

— Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (@AOC) March 27, 2019

-----

'delay': sure as shit some of that 'delay' would disappear if the folks who support the GND would actually 'support' the GND, but they don't, not really.

AOC embodies the Orwellian "duckspeak." I've never before encountered it so thoroughly.

Hello UG. Nice to see you here again.

Great, now I have to censor all my anti California comments and tirades.
