Democratic Sen. Ed Markey unloaded on Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell on social media Tuesday; directly accusing the GOP lawmaker of “sabotaging the movement” by calling for a full vote on his ‘Green New Deal.’
“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,” posted the ‘New Deal’ author.
This isn't a new Republican trick. By rushing a vote on the #GreenNewDeal resolution, Republicans want to avoid a true national debate & kill our efforts to organize. We’re having the first national conversation on climate change in a decade. We can’t let Republicans sabotage it.
