Angus King joins Republicans to reject Green New Deal resolution

Angus King joins Republicans to reject Green New Deal resolution”

"Make no mistake Republicans want to force this political stunt to distract from the fact that they neither have a plan or sense of urgency to deal with the threat of climate change", said Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, a Democrat from NY. That left the final vote at 57-0 against the resolution, with 43 members voting present.

Three Democratic senators crossed the aisle to vote "no" on the Deal, as did Independent senator Angus King, who usually votes Democratic. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell called the proposal "a radical, top-down, socialist makeover of the entire USA economy".

"This is not an elitist issue; this is a quality-of-life issue", Ocasio-Cortez said during a House Financial Services Committee meeting. Call them elitist", she said, adding: "People are dying, they are dying, and the response across the other side of the aisle is to introduce an amendment five minutes before a hearing and a markup?

Changes coming at FAA after crashes, watchdog says
Six 737 MAX 8 and 9 planes were at the Orlando airport at the time the grounding order was given, Fox 35 reports. The FAA only allows airlines to fly Max 737 planes that don't have passengers on board.

Offered a chance to respond by Representative Maxine Waters, Ocasio-Cortez did-and created a viral moment that registered some 3 million views by early Wednesday morning, The Guardian reported.

"There's this obsession with perfectionism: 'What about Clause 2a?'" she says. Climate change has emerged as a prominent issue for voters, but Democrats will need to maneuver GOP attacks about the hefty price tag likely associated with the plan. In a floor speech illustrated with a series of entertaining charts, Lee pointed out that of the few concrete policies connected to the Green New Deal, most-such as eliminating cows and airplanes-are clearly absurd. But the push for the Congressional resolution has already changed the conversation on climate change in Washington and forced a discussion on the issue.

All of the Democratic senators running for president co-sponsored the Green New Deal resolution, including Sens.

Patriots owner Kraft to reject plea deal
Kraft's attorneys are now negotiating with prosecutors over a potential plea deal and the viability of the state's case. Jupiter police have said Kraft was caught on surveillance video on both occasions, January 19 and January 20.

"Like many other women + working people, I occasionally suffer from impostor syndrome: those small moments, especially on hard days, where you wonder if the haters are right", Ocasio-Cortez tweeted. As McConnell explained on Twitter, his aim was to show voters which Democrats backed the radical restructuring of the US economy that such a bill would entail.

"This image has as much to do with overcoming communism in the 20th century as the Green New Deal has to do with overcoming climate change in the 21st", Lee said, presenting the image on a large poster. So it's not a question of whether we're going to spend the money, because-I'm very sad to say that the government knew that climate change was real, starting as far back as 1989, when NASA was reporting this. Ed Markey, D-Mass., failed in the Senate on Tuesday after Republicans pushed the controversial bill for a vote.

Following the disastrous vote for Ocasio-Cortez, the young socialist took to Twitter to try to save face, declaring that she told her Democratic colleagues to not vote for the proposal. But what Duffy was attempting was an amendment to a homelessness bill which would have removed that part where the bill had to live up to green new deal standards.

"McConnell tried to rush the #GreenNewDeal straight to the floor without a hearing", she wrote.
