McConnell: Senate Will Vote on ‘Green New Deal’ So All Lawmakers Can ‘Go on Record’Majority Leader Mitch McConnell announced Tuesday that the Senate will vote on the “Green New Deal” resolution introduced last week by a coalition of progressive lawmakers vowing to entirely erase greenhouse gas emissions within ten years, while simultaneously creating millions of jobs in a government-subsidized green energy sector. Give everybody an opportunity to go on record and see how they feel about the Green New Deal,” McConnell said during a Monday press conference.
