Senate to vote Tuesday on Green New Deal

NEW YORK (1010 WINS) — The Senate is supposed to vote Tuesday on Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s Green New Deal.

Democrats don’t want to vote, but Republicans are pushing for it as they want to get Democrats on record on what Majority Leader Mitch McConnell calls a “radical top-down socialist makeover of the economy with its call to get rid of air travel and flatulent cows.”

Democrats plan to counter McConnell’s move by voting present instead of for or against the Green New Deal, which they argue is more of an aspirational document, rather than legislation ready for a vote.
