On Tuesday, the fantastic visions of the 29-year-old former bartender who has come to be the face of the Democratic party were dealt a major blow in a humiliating vote in the U.S. Senate.
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s Green New Deal has been hailed by the growing lineup of clowns who will be competing for the party’s 2020 presidential nomination but has been widely panned elsewhere including by the borderline senile Nancy Pelosi who derisively referred to the socialist Trojan horse as the “Green Dream” last month.
According to an early draft posted on AOC’s website that has been mocked, the GND called for the elimination of air travel, the rebuilding of every structure in America to meet rigid guidelines, conversion to electric cars, paying the lazy to not work and oh, those farting cows.
Yesterday was the first chance for lawmakers to get on the record after Republican Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell defied Democrats by essentially forcing them to eat their own shit by calling a vote.
And that vote was a blow to AOC, the socialist ideologues and the special interests that would rake in trillions of dollars off of such a radical transformation of society.
FINAL VOTE on Green New Deal fails 0 – 57 with 43 Dems voting 'present.'
Jones, Sinema, Manchin, and King voted with Republicans.

Via The Daily Wire, “Ocasio-Cortez’s ‘Green New Deal’ Fails In Senate. NO Senators Supported It”:
Socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s (D-NY) “Green New Deal” overwhelmingly failed in the Senate on Tuesday when it was put to a vote, as not a single senator voted in support of it.
“Not a single senator backed her bill during the vote, a 57-0 filibuster,” The Washington Times reported. “Forty-three Democrats voted ‘present,’ refusing to take a stand.”
“Republicans said it was a devastating blow to the democratic socialist movement’s marquee proposal, which called for an upheaval in American energy, overhaul of the construction sector, and the largest expansion in history of the social safety net,” the Times added.
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said he was putting the far-left proposal to a vote to see which Democrats supported it.
“The American people will see,” McConnell said before the vote. “They’ll see which senators are so fully committed to radical left-wing ideology that they can’t even vote ‘no’ on self-inflicted economic ruin that would take a sledgehammer to America’s middle class.”
Democrats have had a nightmarish month and it just doesn’t end.
