Democrats are terrified.
The far-left base of the Democrat party is raising demands for the Green New Deal to a fever pitch.
But Chuck Schumer and the old guard liberals are terrified of the bill for one daunting reason.
Despite the deafening lies from the Left, the Green New Deal is a radical law that would devastate the economy. And the American people aren’t blind to this fact.
The Green New Deal is wildly unpopular with voters and could spell doom for the Democrats’ electoral chances in 2020.
In fact, many on the less extreme left already recognize this fact.
“Get ready for the Green New Deal to be one of the biggest buzzwords in electoral politics in decades,” said Marc Morano, publisher of Climate Depot. “Both the GOP and Democrats will love to denounce and praise it.”
Even House Speaker Nancy Pelosi refused to hold a vote on the Green New Deal. Calling it the “green dream” she dismissed the bill as soon as it came up in the House.
Now, that threat is about to leave a permanent mark on their records.
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has scheduled a vote to take place in the U.S. Senate.
With control of the Senate in Republican hands, McConnell will command a roll call vote, capturing every Democrat on record.
This news is terrifying for Chuck Schumer and his cohorts as they’re all trying to walk a fine line. And the line is only getting slimmer.
Cries from the liberal base grow every day to pass the bill despite any electoral consequences. But although many Democrat senators are in safe blue states, a dark record here could shatter their hopes of defeating President Trump in the 2020 election.
So Schumer and his allies have developed a plan to try and skirt flak from both sides.
The idea is to vote present on the bill and avoid the attacks from the center and the right for backing a plan that will devastate the American economy, and perhaps escape the vitriol of the left for outright opposing it.
But that is a mark Schumer is likely to miss.
With leftists like Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez beating the war drums for Democrats to fall in line with her global warming agenda or else while she says she will “run train” for Progressives, it’s unlikely the Senate liberals will escape unharmed.
Even still, Schumer is planning to submit a watered-down resolution. The goal is to have a vote liberals can campaign on with faux support for the debunked global warming agenda to appease their base.
All the while, of course, they plan to light into Republicans, especially President Trump, for opposing non-existent plans to combat the idea of global warming. Of course, if Democrats refuse to back the Green New Deal they have no other alternatives in place.
So it seems, either the Democrats do not consider global warming serious enough themselves to take action on it, or they’re simply incompetent at their jobs. The answer may be both.
