McConnell says he’s going to put Democrats on the record as to their support for the Green New Deal, proposed by radical socialist Ocasio-Cortez, by holding a vote in the Senate on the deal:

McConnell has his ups and downs. He was great on Kavanaugh by has been milktoast on this latest border deal.
But I do like this move by McConnell to allow a vote on this crazy proposal. He knows it will fail – the question is just by how much? Will most Democratas reject it out of hand? We know several Democrats running for president have vocally supported it – Harris and Booker – but will they support it with their votes?
If I were a Democrat in the Senate who didn’t want to go on the record on this radical socialist proposal, I’d simply not vote at all. I wonder how many will try to hide their support for it by not voting? My guess is the numbers will be YUGE!
