Democrat leader Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez`s Green New Deal received a damning rebuke yesterday as a vote brought forth in the senate received 0 votes. Not a single democrat voted for this atrocity of a bill which is estimated to cost over $93 billion, and several democrats wound up joining with republicans in voting against it making the final vote 57-0. We`re curious as to why no democrats voted on the Green New Deal. Democrat leader Ocasio-Cortez says it was because she told them not to take a vote on it, but the more likely reality is that they know a vote to support their leaders bill could be a job ending vote. Seeing as how climate change is our World War 2 and that if we don`t combat it the world will end in 12 years, you`d think saving humanity from farting cows would be worth the risk.
In a related note, Senator Mike Lee seems to have really triggered the left with his speech in opposition to the Green New Deal which, among other things included a picture of Ronald Reagan shooing a machine gun while riding a dinosaur carrying an American Flag. In his speech he even references one of the greatest movie series ever- Sharknado 😀 You can watch that speech in the video below posted from his youtube page
The solution to climate change is not this unserious resolution, but the serious business of human flourishing – the solution to so many of our problems, at all times and in all places: fall in love, get married, and have some kids.https://t.co/N2gYdJFldt pic.twitter.com/ekoFlaECSd
