Senate Rejects Ocasio-Cortez 'Green New Deal' 57 - 0

Mitch McConnell stages show vote in the Senate on Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez's green new deal

She also denounced the overall Republican strategy to portray climate change concerns as an issue of privilege. "We're feeling really good about where we're moving".

Markey said the special committee can help "build the political will" for taking action to address climate change. "Let's be clear, the majority leader did not call this resolution up for a vote because he thinks climate change is an urgent threat to our country".

Republicans, meanwhile, continued to mock the Green New Deal as a step toward socialism and pushed for a House vote similar to the one in the Senate.

Bright side. Sure, her numbers are tanking, but Ocasio-Cortez can take solace in the news that another Twitter-savvy, popular-within-his-party politician is doing quite well.

Republicans dismissed the plan as a government takeover of the economy that could bankrupt the nation with an unrealistic goal of obtaining net-zero carbon emissions within 10 years.

Supporters of the deal hope to eradicate fossil fuels by 2030.

Democratic Senators Doug Jones of Alabama, Joe Manchin of West Virginia and Kyrsten Sinema of Arizona voted "no".

In the win over the Badgers, Oregon's lead scorer was Payton Pritchard with 19 points, eight assists and five rebonds. The Pac-12 Player of the Year went into Friday's game averaging 19.4 points, 8.1 assists and 7.5 rebounds a game.

Russian military planes deliver troops and cargo to Venezuela
A picture of a Russian flagged aircraft posted on social media showed men in uniform clustered around it on the tarmac. The Russian personnel were involved in training and military cooperation with their Venezuelan counterparts.

Papazian said Ocasio-Cortez "parachuted" into Rep. Carolyn Maloney's (D-N.Y.) neighboring Congressional district and succeeded in killing the Amazon deal in Long Island City, Queens.

The Green New Deal goes far beyond energy to urge national health care coverage and job guarantees, high-quality education and affordable housing, as well as "upgrading all existing buildings in the United States" to be energy-efficient. But mostly they're ridiculous.

"We are already seeing, hearing, feeling and suffering the impacts of climate change with increased flooding, deadly forest fires and super-charged hurricanes fueled by climate change, but Republicans refuse to hold the hearings in Congress and invite the expert testimony to debate the issue", he said in a statement.

"It isn't about energy", Mullin said.

Senate Democrats unveiled the new panel just one day after Minority Leader Chuck Schumer called for the creation of a bipartisan Senate select committee on climate change in remarks from the chamber floor.

He said he was treating the plan "with the seriousness it deserves". Fully 67 percent said in the recent Siena poll that it was a bad thing for NY when Amazon pulled the plug, and when asked if Ocasio-Cortez was a "hero" or "villain" in that decision, New Yorkers split 12/38.

But Lee's use of eye-catching visual aids in his denouncement of the broad climate change measure didn't stop there.

But 73 percent of Republicans said she was bad for the party, a sentiment agreed to by only 9 percent of Democrats.
