“Green New Deal” gets crushed in the U.S. Senate


When the “Green New Deal” began to gain traction in the U.S. Congress, Senate Democrats praised it, while Republicans like Florida Senator Rick Scott called it the “Green Job Killer” that would “destroy our economy.”

Now the moment of truth has come for the “New Deal” in the senate, and Rep. Ocasio-Cortez’s measure has been summarily defeated in the senate

Don’t blame Republicans, blame Democrats, who all voted “present,” refusing to openly lend their support for the controversial proposal. Even the bill’s senate sponsor, Sen. Ed Markey, refused to vote ‘yes’ or ‘no.’
