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.

DEMOCRAT DISASTER: McConnell to Call Full Senate Vote on the ‘Green New Deal’
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell announced Tuesday night his plan to call a full Senate vote on the Democrats’ recently unveiled ‘Green New Deal,’ demanding liberal lawmakers go “on the record” regarding the massive government expansion project.
McConnell was speaking with reporters at the US Capitol when he confirmed the vote; saying he’s “noted with great interest” Rep. Ocasio-Cortez’ newest proposal.
The "Green New Deal" will hit the Senate floor for a vote, according to @senatemajldr.

“I’ve noted with great interest the ‘Green New Deal.’ We’re going to be voting on that in the Senate; giving everybody an opportunity to go on record and see how they feel about the ‘Green New Deal,’” said McConnell.
BOOKER GOES BERSERK: Explodes, Says ‘Green New Deal’ Same as FIGHTING NAZIS
Sen. Cory Booker doubled-down on Rep. Ocasio-Cortez’ ‘Green New Deal’ Friday; telling a crowd of supporters the fight against climate change is the same as those who fought against Nazi Germany during World War II.
“We have to deal with this, our planet is in peril. We need to be bold, that’s why I co-sponsored the resolution for the Green New Deal,” said Booker.
“We are a nation that has done impossible things before. We need to be bold again in America. When the planet has been imperiled in the past, who came forward to save earth from the scourge of Nazism? We came forward,” he added.
You can’t make this up.
