Controversy is brewing in the senate as Senator Mitch McConnell, Senate Majority Leader (R) is under fire from Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio Cortez  (Representative D-NY 14th District) as McConnell has stated, “What McConnell’s doing is that he’s trying to rush this bill to the floor without a hearing… without working through committee — because he doesn’t want to save our planet. Because he thinks we can drink oil in 30 years when all our water is poisoned,” she reportedly said.  Cortez, commonly known by her initials AOC has proposed a Green New Deal, which is what Sen. Lamar Alexander describes as, “ Basically, it is an assault on cars, cows, and combustion. With nuclear power available, the Green New Deal’s strategy for fighting climate change with windmills makes as much sense as going to war in sailboats.”

The Senate is set for a test vote on Tuesday afternoon March 26. McConnell tweeted Monday that, “I could not be more glad that the American people will have the opportunity to learn precisely where each one of their senators stand on the ‘Green New Deal’: a radical, top-down, socialist makeover of the entire U.S. economy.”
