The Senate had the opportunity to vote on the Green New Deal bill introduced by the Freshman Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. After the controversy that was sparked by the unrealistic utopia bill, the Republican Senator Majority Leader Mitch McConnell decided to put the bill for a vote on the Senate floor.
Despite the fact that Democrat Senators such as Kamala Harris, Cory Booker, Bernie Sanders, Kirsten Gillibrand, and many others openly praised the Green New Deal in their presidential campaigns and television interviews, not one voted in favor of the bill and instead voted “present” on Tuesday, March 26th.
The Green New Deal bill is dead for now with 57-0 votes against it. Apparently all the Senate Democrats do not believe that the Green New Deal bill will prevent the world from ending in 12 years, as Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez would like for everyone to believe.
According to the freshman House Representative Ocasio-Cortez, she runs the Democrat party to the point where all of the party members followed her instructions to vote “present” instead of following their beliefs to save the planet by voting “yea.”
