New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Massachusetts Sen. Edward Markey are the main members of Congress behind the “Green New Deal” sham proposal (that’s an absolute embarrassment by the way), and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has pledged to move it forward:

Hey, look at that! The Dems’ emergency proposal that they say would save the planet from a fiery demise will get a vote. Progressive climate change alarmists like Sen. Markey must be thrilled, right? Well, no:
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. https://t.co/GUxJ5HG2jb

Give McConnell at least a hundred “called your bluff” points. The Dems don’t want this steaming pile of multi-trillion dollar socialism brought to a vote because they don’t want to be on record.
