Not a single Democrat voted for the “Green New Deal,” proving they don’t actually believe what they say
03/28/2019 // Ethan Huff // Views

In what obviously came as a shock to many, the Senate recently voted on Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez's (AOC) so-called "Green New Deal," and wouldn't you know it – not a single member of Congress, including Democrats, voted in favor of it.

With a final vote of 0-57, with all 43 Democrats simply voting "present," the cow fart-banning, fossil fuel-eradicating, economy-destroying socialist mess was finally put to rest – much to the chagrin of AOC, who almost immediately chastised all of her colleagues for not supporting her pipe dream legislation.

The non-binding resolution quite obviously failed to reach the 60 votes that would have been necessary for actual debates to begin, revealing the utter ridiculousness of the proposal right out of the gate. It's also now obvious that AOC and her ideas exist on the absolute fringe, garnering total bipartisan opposition.

Even avowed socialist Bernie Sanders of Vermont, who technically identifies as an "independent," voted "present" on the Green New Deal, suggesting that he, too, thinks it's just plain crazy and will never work.

"The vote had been teed up by Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., in a bid to make Democratic senators – including several 2020 presidential candidates – go on the record about the measure," Fox News reported.

"McConnell had called the proposal 'a radical, top-down, socialist makeover of the entire U.S. economy.'"

Even Democrat Senator Ed Markey, who co-authored the Green New Deal, didn't vote in favor of it

Hilariously, even AOC's partner in crime, Democrat Senator and Green New Deal co-author Ed Markey, reportedly gave a "present" vote rather than support his own bill, leaving AOC all alone in her quest to stop the world from allegedly ending in 12 years due to cow farts.


"The American people will see," McConnell stated confidently before he put the Green New Deal up for a vote. "They'll see which senators are so fully committed to radical left-wing ideology that they can't even vote 'no' on self-inflicted economic ruin that would take a sledgehammer to America's middle class."

Even more hilarious was AOC's post-vote claim that she somehow "encouraged" her colleagues to vote "present" rather than in favor of the Green New Deal – offering no explanation as to why she would do this – only to proceed into a typical rant about climate change.

"McConnell tried to rush the #GreenNewDeal straight to the floor without a hearing," AOC whined on Twitter. "The real question we should be asking: Why does the Senate GOP refuse to hold any major hearings on climate change?"

And leave it to Leftist Democrats still in favor of the Green New Deal to double down on their support for it, even going so far as to claim that it's still very popular and that people just love it.

Sean McElwee, writing for the failing New York Times, actually published an article entitled, "People Actually Like the Green New Deal," that tries to whitewash the rejection of the Green New Deal by both aisles of Congress, insisting that the plan somehow has bipartisan support.

"McElwee's finding is that people love greenie-weenie schemes if you emphasize the benefits and promise that the costs will be minimal and paid for by someone else," writes Kevin D. Williamson for National Review. "One wonders whether McElwee ever has met a conservative."
