Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell plans on bringing the so-called Green New Deal to a vote, presumably in the hope of forcing the numerous Senate Democrats who will potentially be their party's 2020 presidential nominee to stake out a position on the controversial set of policy proposals.
Markey and Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of NY led the unveiling of a resolution laying the groundwork for aggressive policy proposals created to combat climate change, which critics argue could be too costly to the economy and in some cases outright not feasible.
One day after McConnellsaid he would hold a vote on the progressive bill that would curb air travel, cut all fossil fuel use, and establish additional entitlement programs, Limbaugh said the move was a stroke of genius.

The Senate Majority Leader won't be unprepared for such a contest, however. Edward J. Markey (D-Mass.), who co-sponsored the resolution in the Senate, said the proposal's principles "resonate with the American people - a mission to save all of creation by investing in massive job creation".
Ocasio-Cortez countered that Trump is not equipped to give criticism of her House resolution since he "can't even read briefings written in full sentences". He wants to silence your voice so Republicans don't have to explain why they are climate change deniers. The ambitious proposal met a reality check Tuesday as California Gov. Gavin Newsom declared there "isn't a path" for completing a high-speed rail line between Los Angeles and San Francisco - although Newsom's office said later that he isn't walking away from the project.
