Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has really rocked Democrats by forcing them to vote on the “Green New Deal.” This will expose which politicians support the radical deal and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer is not happy about it.
A fuming Schumer took to the Senate floor to directly call out McConnell opening his tirade with, “I heard Leader McConnell knocking the Green New Deal.”
Oddly though, that was all the focus the “Deal” itself would get. Schumer’s attacks sidestepped defending the actual proposal and essentially devolved to a tantrum that climate change was bad.
“I would ask the leader, and we’re gonna keep asking him and every Republican in this chamber what they would do about climate change, about global warming,” Schumer ranted. “So Leader McConnell, do you believe that climate change, global warming, is real?”
Despite those questions not having anything to do with why the outrageous proposal needed to be carried to a vote, Schumer still burst out, “Until Leader McConnell and his Republican majority answer those questions, the games they are playing here will have no meaning!”
“This is not a debate!” he added. “It’s a diversion, it’s a sham!”
McConnell really should be commended. By using the proposal to expose socialist Democrats, he’s getting some use out of legislation that would otherwise be a total waste of time. He’s previously intoned that the deal is a “fantasy novel masquerading as public policy.”
