    Green New Deal Fails Senate Test Vote As Dozens of Democrats Vote 'present'

    The Green New Deal, a sweeping Democratic proposal for dealing with climate change, fell at the first hurdle Tuesday as the Senate failed to reach the 60 votes necessary to begin debate on the non-binding resolution, with 42 Democrats and Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., voting "present."

    No senator voted to begin debate on the legislation, while 57 lawmakers voted against breaking the filibuster. Democratic Sens. Doug Jones of Alabama, Joe Manchin of West Virginia and Kyrsten Sinema of Arizona joined 53 Republicans in voting "no." Sen. Angus King, I-Maine, who caucuses with the Democrats, also voted "no."

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

    Why would you write legislation you don’t want a vote on?
    How did somebody with zero experience in law co-write a bill and have it published in less than a month?
    who did the research for this?
    Who funded the research for this?
    How much will this cost?
    How will it be paid for?
    What happens if the wealthy fuck off to a tax shelter?
    Who will be taxed in the event the wealthy leave?
    Why are Dems refusing to vote for it, even if it is a “stunt”?

    I can't believe how many times the Dems have lost lately. They need to focus on their party imploding instead of Trump

    I don't think they know they've lost because they just keep on with the same old shit.

    They definitely lose all the time now, and they definitely don’t see it as a loss. Their minds are so warped, there’s no showing them the truth. In their minds, they win all the time
