McConnell Pulls BRILLIANT Move On ‘Green New Deal,’ AOC, Dems In Disbelief

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell pulled a brilliant move on Tuesday on the socialist “Green New Deal,” and Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Democrats are in complete disarray.

While speaking to reporters from Capitol Hill, McConnell announced that the Senate will hold a formal vote on the “Green New Deal.”

“I’ve noted with great interest the Green New Deal. And we’re going to be voting on that in the Senate. Give everybody an opportunity to go on record and see how they feel about the Green New Deal,” McConnell said.

His plan is to put Democrats, especially those running for president in 2020, on the record if they support the trillion-dollar socialist climate change plan.

How do we know Democrats were stunned by the brilliant political move?

Soon after his news conference, Sen. Ed Markey, one of the co-sponsors of the Green New Deal, accused McConnell of trying to “sabotage” discussion on climate change by allowing a vote on the Green New Deal.

“Don’t let Mitch McConnell fool you: this is nothing but an attempt to sabotage the movement we are building,” Markey wrote in a tweet.

He added in another tweet: “He wants to silence your voice so Republicans don’t have to explain why they are climate change deniers. McConnell wants this to be the end, this is just the beginning.”

Ocasio-Cortez also lashed out on Twitter:

Ocasio-Cortez, Markey, and Democrats have been demanding Republicans address climate change and discuss their bill.

In response, McConnell grants their wish and says he will allow the full Senate to vote on the Green New Deal to see if it passes.

Then, Markey and Ocasio-Cortez lash out at McConnell and accuse him of sabotaging the resolution when he’s literally giving Democrats what they want.

Democrats are freaking out because they know the deal has no chance of passing the Senate and will likely suffer a humiliating defeat.

In addition, Americans will also be furious when they learn just how much this socialist measure will cost them.

A new study reveals the price tag for Green New Deal comes out to $7 trillion.

A recent study from PJ Media found that the estimated $7 trillion projected cost is painfully low, and that it could actually cost nearly $50 trillion, which would be roughly seven — SEVEN — times more than that.

According to an eye-popping PJ Media analysis based on a new report from Power the Future, the “Green New Deal” proposed by democratic socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) would cost more than 8,000 times as much as President Donald Trump’s border wall.

The “Green New Deal” will cost approximately $49.109 trillion in the first ten years, enough to fund Trump’s border wall 8,616 times over. The president is requesting $5.7 billion for the wall.

Ocasio-Cortez has also called for a smart power grid to replace the U.S. power grid, an estimated cost of $338 billion on the low end ($476 billion on the high end), according to the Electric Power Research Institute. This kind of transition may be a good idea in general, but it drives up the cost of the “Green New Deal.”

All that “free” stuff Ocasio-Cortez keeps promising sure is expensive.
