Schumer Counters McConnell's 'Cynical Show Vote' on Green New Deal

Pelosi said that House Democrats and committee leaders would be more keen on crafting actual legislation to combat climate change and other issues incorporated in the Green New Deal, rather than the resolution-which in its current form, is nonbinding.

The Western Caucus bills the forum as the "first in-depth public review" the Green New Deal has gotten from Congress since it was introduced by Democratic New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez in early February. The Senate resolution says that the federal government should create a Green New Deal "to achieve net-zero greenhouse gas emissions through a fair and just transition for all communities and workers" and calls in part for "meeting 100 percent of the power demand in the United States through clean, renewable, and zero-emission energy sources". "I've noted with great interest the Green New Deal, and we're going to be voting on that in the Senate to give everybody an opportunity to go on the record", McConnell told CNBC. Durbin said on MSNBC's "Morning Joe".

There are no specifics provided in the whole overview and FAQ of this Green New Deal, and that is what is confusing the media and population in general.

"The basic idea is that the times for gradual solutions on climate change are passed", Roberts said.

Ocasio-Cortez and Sen. Ed Markey, D-Mass., unveiled a blueprint of their Green New Deal resolution at the beginning of the month; since then, it's garnered the support of several notable Democratic senators, including presidential hopefuls Sens. "And I know what I'm doing". But curiously enough, this planned vote was met with outrage from the very people claiming to champion the proposal. The Green New Deal also addresses many topics including universal healthcare, green investment and free college. Despite criticism of the senator's seemingly dismissive reaction, Clarke tells the Guardian the moment was "instrumental in moving the Green New Deal forward".
