Climate Change Dispatch by Breck Dumas 2/14/2020

Rep. Dan Crenshaw (R-Texas) did not let Democratic presidential candidate Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) get away with touting the radical Green New Deal on Thursday, simply asking the self-described democratic socialist why he did not vote for the measure when he had the opportunity.

What are the details?

Sanders tweeted, “I make no apologies for proposing the boldest and most aggressive climate proposal with our Green New Deal. This is a climate emergency.”

“Then why didn’t you vote ‘YES’ for the Green New Deal when it came to the Senate Floor?” Crenshaw replied. “Maybe because it’s not a plan. Or a good deal. Or even ‘Green.’ It’s a 3rd grade science project that isn’t based in science or engineering.”

From the article....

“Sanders tweeted, “I make no apologies for proposing the boldest and most aggressive climate proposal with our Green New Deal. This is a climate emergency.”

“Then why didn’t you vote ‘YES’ for the Green New Deal when it came to the Senate Floor?”


Because, similar to Medicare for All, they don’t want the public to know the details
I have little interest in streamlining government or in making it more efficient, for I mean to reduce its size. I do not undertake to promote welfare, for I propose to extend freedom. My aim is not to pass laws, but to repeal them.
