Seems that the Democrats cannot function without the hypocrisy.
They have used the “Green New Deal” as proof of their determination to fight ‘climate change’ while berating the Republicans as being opposed to anything that seeks to reduce this ‘climate change’. They also try to convince the public that this is the kind of regulations that the American people approve of to fight the ‘climate change’ war and defend the planet.
Further, these people keep hammering that action(s) must be now ….. we can’t wait any longer and can’t afford to waste time debating the proposed legislation. In fact, our most recent village idiot – Ocasio-Cortez – tells us that, without action, the planet only has another 12 years if nothing is done.
Now comes reality!
Mitch McConnel seems to agree with the Democrate sense of haste and is bringing the bill that all of the Democrats are pushing and campaigning on. And, the Democrat response?
Dems scream after Mitch McConnell schedules a vote on their own Green New Deal
There’s nothing quite like handing Democrats What They Want.
So to accommodate them, wily old Republican Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has scheduled a vote on freshman socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and her sidekick Sen. Ed Markey’s much-vaunted “Green New Deal,” just to help them out.
But wait. The Senate lefties are not happy about it.
All that methane-filled and benzene ring-infused hot air about cutting cow farts, getting rid of cars, ending jet travel, and retrofitting every building in America to ‘go green’ — the plan which was so quickly signed onto by nearly all major Democratic presidential candidates, and then pulled from the website — suddenly isn’t quite what Democrats want to go on the record about these days.
So we see headlines like this:
McConnell Trolls Democrats By Pledging A Vote On The Green New Deal -Huffington Post
and “concern” from Democrats such as this:
Sen. Brian Schatz (D-Hawaii) criticized Republicans on Tuesday for pledging to hold what is essentially a show vote on the Green New Deal, given that they have not advanced any serious efforts to address climate change.
But a seventh potential candidate in 2020, Ohio Democratic Sen. Sherrod Brown, pointedly declined Tuesday to attach his name and dismissed liberal activists’ contention that he has to support the Green New Deal in order to prove his commitment to the issue.
“I don’t need to co-sponsor every bill that others think they need to co-sponsor to show my progressive politics,” Brown told reporters.
Don’t let Mitch McConnell fool you: this is nothing but an attempt to sabotage the movement we are building. 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.
