CNBC ^

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said Tuesday that the Senate would vote on the Green New Deal introduced last week by Sen. Edward Markey, D-Mass., and Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y.

"I've noted with great interest the Green New Deal, and we're going to be voting on that in the Senate to give everybody an opportunity to go on record," McConnell told reporters.

The bill, which is not expected to pass the Republican-dominated upper chamber, could force some Democrats to make a politically awkward calculation.

Theater on theater. The “bill” is a resolution wish list, not a set of laws. It’s theater, not legislation.

Trump’s description of it as a high-school paper with a poor grade was exceedingly generous.

A vote on the "Green New Deal" will turn AOC into chop-chop salad.

More like a hostage-taker's list of demands...
...or a terrorist's manifesto.

Yes. This is why we should capture the votes from EVERY lawmaker on EVERY bill so that their tomfoolery will be on record.

This is not good. Once they submit these types of bills, if libs ever control of the two other branches... will make it much easier to pass this crap Same with recent gun legislation.

That might be, but you and many others don’t get it. By putting this up for a vote, we get to see WHO voted YEA or NAY.

Yeah, it seems that regardless of the dozens of items in the bill, most everyone is interested In the juvenile bathroom humor.

That’s just absolutely bonkers. Of course, the dems are all going to be in favor of it just to make a point and what then when it backfires as it will. It’s touted as only a “resolution” anyway, not a bill. Can’t we get a Congress that consists of 535 adults and not adolescents? Wish we had the power to FIRE them all with very, very few exceptions!!

Whatever - show votes. McConnell trying to be cute, but all he’s doing is giving this airhead congresswoman more free press.
