TRUMP’S MARCHING ORDERS: McConnell Trolls Dems, Calls For Green New Deal Vote


In a surprising Trump-like move, Sen. Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has announced that he will be bringing the Green New Deal to the Senate floor for a vote. In a press conference, he tells reporters that he it will “give everybody an opportunity to see how they feel about the Green New Deal.”

The Green New Deal has been around by years, being used as a central tenet of the Green Parties platform since 2012. But it is gaining steam due to a renewed push led by socialist Democrat Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York, who is pushing the House Resolution. The Senate companion bill is being pushed by Sen. Ed Markey of Massachusetts.

Proponents of the Green New Deal believe it will “eliminate the U.S. carbon footprint by 2030,” creating millions of jobs in the process.

The plan to do that includes eliminating domestic air travel in lieu of railways, promoting electric cars, and reducing the amount of “farting cows.”

President Donald Trump believes it is great that Democrats are pushing forward with the Green New Deal, just this week Tweeting about it.

Trump clearly sees this as a losing issue for Democrats, and wants them to be forced to go on record either for or against the issue.

Now McConnell is mirroring Trump’s calls, announcing a floor vote on the controversial issue.

Green New Deal has virtually zero chance of passing through the Senate, but the vote  will clearly put Democrats on record either for or against the measure.
