That’s right. Must be in a bill form now since there the senate called for a cloture vote to advance it to an up or down vote in the senate.
Not a single Dem voted to do so. WOW
2 voted with the Republicans not to advance it (along with 1 independent who votes with the dems) for a vote of 57 nothing to not advance the bill. 42 dems decided to not have any balls and simply vote present.
The Green New Deal, a radical 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 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.”
There’s no hurry, it’s a political move according to the sponsor of the bill. They don’t really want a vote on it until AFTER the presidential election in 2020. Guess it must not be that important of an issue that they want to wait and debate 18 month +.
Democratic Sen. Edward Markey, who co-sponsored the proposed legislation with Ocasio-Cortez, said that the Green New Deal was intended to spur debate throughout the 2020 presidential election about how best to tackle the delicate issue of climate change – not to be put to a quick vote on the Senate floor.
