"I'm trying to draft another one, which might be more acceptable, but it's not done yet", Feinstein told E&E News last night.
On the Senate floor today, McConnell acknowledged dissent among Democrats over whether a Green New Deal is the right way to go, but added that "it looks like, one way or another, the Democratic Party as a whole is eager to get behind this thing". Their hope was to sway Feinstein's vote in favor of the proposal.
McConnell panned specific parts of the bill on upgrading all existing buildings in the United States and building new buildings to be green compliant, meeting 100 percent of the power demand in the United States without fossil fuels, and building out high-speed rail at a scale where air travel stops becoming necessary. A polite legislative campaign for the Green New Deal isn't going to cut it - these people are literally making money from killing the planet and dooming humankind.
