Green New Deal Vote Fails To Pass, Gets Zero Votes… With 43 Democrats Voting Present


The Green New Deal failed the Senate test vote as dozens of Democrats vote ‘present.’

This has been s a terrible week for liberals. But then again Good news for American Citizens is always bad news for liberals. Pretty sad that 43 Democrats were more worried about alienating some of their voters than voting No on such a ridiculous bill.

The Hill:

The Senate on Tuesday blocked the Green New Deal, a progressive climate change resolution that Republicans view as prime fodder heading into the 2020 presidential election.

The Senate voted 0-57 on taking up the resolution, with 43 Democrats voting “present.” The measure was widely expected to fall short of the 60 votes needed to overcome the procedural hurdle.

Most Democrats were expected to vote present, a move that allowed them to avoid taking a formal position. Sens. Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.), Kyrsten Sinema (D-Ariz.), Doug Jones (D-Ala.) and Angus King (I-Maine) voted with Republicans against the measure.

Republicans have seized on the measure as an example that Democrats are shifting to the left ahead of next year’s presidential election. Every Democratic senator running for the party’s nomination in 2020 has co-sponsored the Senate Green New Deal resolution. More

The Democrat’s pulled an Obama and voted “present” on their own bill… Now that’s really hilarious. I guess AOC isn’t the boss anymore.

Mike Lee officially became a General in the Great Meme War on the floor of the Senate… He’s poking fun at it but making some serious points too. 

Mike, you angered me when you voted against President Trump, but I have to applaud you for this presentation.
