TRUMP’S MARCHING ORDERS: McConnell Trolls Dems, Calls For Green New Deal Vote

Published

on

In a surprising Trump-like move, Sen. Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has announced that he will be bringing the Green New Deal to the Senate floor for a vote. In a press conference, he tells reporters that he it will “give everybody an opportunity to see how they feel about the Green New Deal.”

The Green New Deal has been around for years, being used as a central tenet of the Green Party’s platform since 2012. But it is gaining steam due to a renewed push led by socialist Democrat Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York, who is pushing a House Resolution for the measure. The Senate companion bill is being pushed by Sen. Ed Markey of Massachusetts.

Proponents of the Green New Deal believe it will “eliminate the U.S. carbon footprint by 2030,” creating millions of jobs in the process.

The plan to do that includes eliminating domestic air travel in lieu of railways, promoting electric cars, and reducing the amount of “farting cows.”

President Donald Trump believes it is great that Democrats are pushing forward with the Green New Deal, just this week Tweeting about it.

Trump clearly sees this as a losing issue for Democrats, and wants them to be forced to go on record either for or against the issue.

Now McConnell is mirroring Trump’s calls, announcing a floor vote on the controversial issue.

Green New Deal has virtually zero chance of passing through the Senate, but the vote  will clearly put Democrats on record either for or against the measure.

House Republicans Hoping to Get Americans Back to Work By End of April

House Republicans are considering plans that would help Americans get back to work by the end of the month. Kevin Brady of Texas told reporters on a conference call that the caucus is preparing preliminary plans that phase the workforce back in at the end of April.

Our focus is on locking down the virus while we’re taking the steps now to prepare to reopen the economy by the end of the month if the virus permits.”

Brady was careful to qualify that there’s no guarantee the public health situation in the United States would allow such a development.

“I think we should all expect the jobs, the unemployment in the GDP numbers to feel brutal over the short term. It’s because they are. This economy is taking hits like we’ve not seen in most of our lifetimes. But it is just a short-term hit.

Initial social distancing guidelines set forth by the White House in conjunction with the CDC were extended from two weeks to April 30th earlier in the week, suggesting the executive branch may be cautiously looking towards the end of April to begin phasing out the unprecedented disruptions to everyday American life.

It is worth noting that an early cease to social distancing and commonsense measures to deter the spread of the Chinese coronavirus could prove to be even more harmful than the negative impacts to the economy since the beginning of the virus-related recession. This can’t be rushed. But the consequences of the economic damage are real, and all Americans should look to get everyday economic life up and running against as soon as possible.
