WIMPS… 43 Democrats Vote “Present” on Ocasio-Cortez’s Green New Suicide Pact — Final Vote 0-57!
NOT ONE SINGLE Democrat voted in support of the Green New Deal today in the US Senate.
The final vote was 0-57 with 43 cowardly Democrats voting “present.” They didn’t have the guts to support the monstrosity that would destroy the entire US economy in less than 5 years!

FOX News reported:
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.”
