Mitch McConnell closes in on AOC’s pet project: “I could not be more glad…”

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said Monday that he “could not be more glad” for the upcoming vote on the Green New Deal that Republicans believe will reveal just how liberal the Democratic Party has become.

“I could not be more glad that the American people will have the opportunity to learn precisely where each one of their senators stand on the “Green New Deal,” McConnell tweeted. “A radical, top-down, socialist makeover of the entire U.S. economy.”

In February, McConnell announced that he would force a vote in the Republican-held house on the aggressively progressive deal before the August recess, which could happen as soon as Tuesday, according to a report by NBC News.

“The proposal we are talking about is, frankly, delusional,” McConnell said on the Senate floor earlier in March. “It is so unserious that it ought to be beneath one of our two major political parties to line up behind it.”

As for the Green New Deal’s creator, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has been less than enthusiastic about the idea of the forced vote.

“The GOP’s whole game of wasting votes in Congress to target others “on the record”, for leg they have no intent to pass, is a disgrace,” Ocasio-Cortez tweeted. “Stop wasting the American peoples’ time + learn to govern. Our jobs aren’t for campaigning, & that’s exactly what these bluff-votes are for.”

However, it was reported earlier that even Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer is moving away from Ocasio-Cortez’s controversial plan.


According to a new report in The Hill, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer and other top Democrats are less than enthusiastic about Democratic socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s Green New Deal.

Schumer is considering an idea to “vote present” on the controversial legislation, according to The Hill. It remains to be seen if other Democrats will agree with Schumer’s plan, however others in his party seem split on the climate change legislation.
