Rush Limbaugh: Sen. McConnell Calling Dems' Bluff With Green New Deal Vote

Sen. Sherrod Brown D-Ohio speaks at a rally in Brunswick Ohio Jan. 30

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said he plans to put the Democrats' Green New Deal to a vote so "everyone can go on record and see how they feel about" the measures created to fight climate change. Barrasso represents the coal-producing state of Wyoming. "Say goodbye to dairy, to beef, to family farms, to ranches". Almost all Democrats in Congress who are running for president in 2020 have expressed support for the measure.

"I'll vote against socialism every time", Gardner said in a brief interview yesterday echoing Republican talking points against the plan.

"What is their answer on climate change?" "I think people should call his bluff".

"Economic security for all who are unable or unwilling to work". "I hope that we can have a vote on this, I hope that we can vote on it every day". Read Breitbart News' original report below.

The Green New Deal would do none of those things, according to The Washington Post's Fact Checker, which analyzed what's actually in the proposal.

As it turns out, Democrats aren't too eager to vote on it. Sen.

But, confident that the calculated ploy will backfire on the GOP, climate groups and progressive lawmakers are telling the Republican leader: "Bring it on". "It's his effort to try to kill it", he said.

The Green New Deal resolution unveiled last Thursday is a nonbinding measure meant to define the scope of what future legislation requires to make a serious dent in surging greenhouse gas emissions. The ambitious proposal met a reality check Tuesday as California Gov. Gavin Newsom declared there "isn't a path" for completing a high-speed rail line between Los Angeles and San Francisco - although Newsom's office said later that he isn't walking away from the project.

"There's another victim of the Green New Deal, it's ice cream".

"Republicans, climate deniers, and the fossil fuel industry are going to end up on the wrong side of history".

Sen. Brian Schatz (D-Hawaii) took to Twitter to highlight the Republicans' lack of a climate strategy.

"Republicans don't want to debate climate change, they only want to deny it", Markey said in responding to McConnell.

"We set a goal to get to net zero, rather than zero emissions, in 10 years because we aren't sure we'll be able to fully get rid of farting cows and airplanes that fast", a version of the document hosted by NPR reads. "It's obvious that the "Green New Deal" has unleashed incredible enthusiasm". Many are also saying the deal would severely hurt the economy.

While McConnell seems to think that getting Democrats on the record backing the Green New Deal will help the GOP politically, the New Yorker's Osita Nwanevu noted that supporting the bold measure "isn't very fraught with political risk for most Democrats".
