Senate blocks Green New Deal proposal

Featured Posts

The Senate on Tuesday voted down a procedural measure to advance the Green New Deal, a wide-reaching proposal that would address climate change.

The final tally was 0-57.

Forty-three Democrats voted "present" in protest of the measure, even though many of them have said that they support the framework of the resolution. Democratic Sens. Joe Manchin of West Virginia, Angus King of Maine, Kyrsten Sinema of Arizona and Doug Jones of Alabama voted no with the Republicans.

Ahead of the vote, Senate Democrats blasted the vote as a “sham.” Democratic Party leaders said they believe Republicans used the vote as a political ploy to divide Democrats on a high-profile progressive idea. Instead, Democrats want members of the Republican leadership to schedule hearings rather than bringing the legislation straight to the floor for a vote.

"Kyrsten Sinema of Arizona...voted no with the Republicans."

She's the only bisexual Dem to not support the Green New Deal.

Voting present means they didn't vote yes or no. Just that they were present for the vote.

It's basically a protest vote in this case.

It was a joke, I'm confused

OH MESS I wasn't directing it at you

Joe Manchin claims to be a centrist, both sides are the same, always compromise etc.

He's quite comical

They didn't vote yes because there isn't an actual bill yet. The GOP Senate just brought this up as a political sham tbh.

They are making it seem like no Democrats support it.

AOC actually encouraged them to vote present in protest.

Some more on this ...

 

.....

I think  that making environmentally friendly business practice economical  and a priority is a good idea.  ... However

I vote <present>  as to the process  being proposed in this resolution...

The far left seems to miss the point with economic issue..

Also.   .

I fail to see any connection to the sexual orientation issue  here.. 

like a cat in a sil, I observe life, moving and still. My words give a clue,look inside to see whats true
