Senate rejects Ocasio-Cortez's Green New Deal in 57-0 vote blasted as a 'sham' by Dems

Senate rejects Ocasio-Cortez's Green New Deal in 57-0 vote blasted as a 'sham' by Dems | 26 March 2019 | The Green New Deal failed to pass a procedural vote in the Senate Tuesday, with Democrats slamming the GOP motion as a "sham" and with two exceptions voting "present" in protest. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell put the ambitious plan to create jobs and improve the environment to a vote to force Democrats to take a public stand on the measure and try to divide the party's moderates and progressives. The final vote was 57 against and no one for the plan, with 43 Democrats voting present. Red State Democratic Sens. Joe Manchin of West Virginia and Kyrsten Sinema of Arizona voted no.
