Skip to comments.Ocasio-Cortez Takes Credit for Not Getting Any Votes in Favor of Her Green New Deal
Posted on 03/27/2019 10:18:23 AM PDT by Responsibility2nd
Democratic New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez claimed on Tuesday not a single Senate Democrat voted in favor of the Green New Deal because she asked them to vote present.
Because I encouraged them to vote present, along w/ others, Ocasio-Cortez responded when Republican Wyoming Sen. John Barrasso asked her why Democrats ducked going on the Senate record in support of her radical anti-climate change resolution.
The New York congresswomans response came only hours after the Senate voted 57-to-0 to kill the Green New Deal, which was introduced by Ocasio-Cortez and Democratic Massachusetts Sen. Ed Markey. Three Democrats voted against the resolution: Arizona Sen. Kyrsten Sinema, West Virginia Sen. Joe Manchin and Alabama Sen. Doug Jones. The remaining Democrats, including Markey, all voted present.
Ocasio-Cortez also attacked Republicans on Saturday for bringing her proposal to the Senate floor for a vote.

Even House Rats like Pelosi are against her Green New Deal.
Because she be da boss!
I meant to do that!
WATCH AND ENJOY:
Sure she did.......
Besides not attending sessions when he was a Senator, he voted "Present" 163 times.
For my next trick I will ask my district to vote me out of office.
So maybe that’s what they should do with the rest of their dumbass proposals. Vote present! Boy that will sure show us uneducated Trump supporting hix! That will be a great campaign slogan for 2020 - VOTE PROGRESSIVE! We’ll always be present not to progress!
Spin, of course, is taking negative news and reframing it as positive, making DEFEAT sound like Victory.
But it has to be believable, Sandy. You lost and should own up to it, not try to gaslight the public. How stupid do you think we are?
She tried this with the Amazon debacle, and no one was buying. 25,000 jobs, millions in tax revenue, and she said it was a bad idea and turned it down. Another "victory" for your constituents?
So how do you know when you're at TLOS? Your allies' eyes roll, they get quiet and they start to edge away from you. That's when you know you've jumped the shark...
McConnell should have left the Green Deal alone. It will be forgotten now before 2020 election.
Stupid enough to elect Obama TWICE.
It’s great for the DemoRATS to see who is actually running their Party now. A know nothing ex waitress and a couple of missing Cli** muzzie sharia subjugated women!-)
nah- Trump will say during the election “The green new Deal was so terrible, noone in their party dared even vote for it because even they realize it would completely bankrupt this country. I took office to fix the looming bankruptcy that obama foisted on America, and now the left want to go right back to bankrupting us? What is wrong with these people? Do they truly hate American and prosperity?
If you folks are sick and tired of winning, sick and tired of prosperity, sick and tired of keeping more of what you work so hard for, then vote democrat, vote for the green new deal- but if you like being prosperous, like having jobs to choose from, like having your border secure, like choosing your own doctors (Remember when obama lied to everyone and said we could keep our own doctors with his abomination called obamacare?) If you like a president that fixes things instead of constantly destroyign them like the democrat party does, then reelect Me!”
I doubt they will run her again. She's disruptive.
[[How stupid do you think we are?
Stupid enough to elect Obama TWICE. ]]
Sadly that was true- all obama had to do was offer ‘free stuff’ and people fell all over themselves trying to get to booths to vote for him
The ‘new progressives’ are offering the moon in regards to ‘free stuff’- we better hope there are enough people this time around that will see through their BS and vote republican- people unfortunately quickly forget how bad things were under obama, and might just vote socialist again - especially if it means ‘setting a precedent, like electing first gay president, or first woman president or some such nonsense- people unfortunately tend to vote on feelings rather than substance and truth-
I’m just hoping there are enough people who have been shaken out of their fantasy ideals to realize a republic needs sensible reality based opportunities, and vote Trump again, and fall all over themselves voting for ‘free stuff’ Independents are wishy washy-
That was demographics and a lot of cheating. Basically, he beat out the Electoral College by capturing “select” districts. We’ll never know how much cheating really occurred but I believe and always will, tht it is the ONLY way he could have won.
Nitwittery is very strong in this one.
