Democrat Senator Ed Markey sponsored the Green New Deal resolution everyone is talking about and introduced it in the Senate for consideration. According to the architect, Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the planet has only 12 years left! Time is ticking and we really need to have the government to step in and help us.
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell agrees that we need to put this to a vote. Apparently, Senator Markey thinks voting on legislation he is sponsoring is.. is..
a bad idea?
So McConnell is pushing Markey’s legislation forward to a vote. It is a non-binding resolution. It is an important commitment towards solving a serious problem. We are talking about the extinction of the planet and the sponsors all believe this will save us. These are smart, elite elected officials who know better than us and want to help us!
And yet, if we vote now, it’s the same as silencing people and makes Republicans climate deniers?
There is dumb, and there is stupid. And then there are democrats and liberals.
