Thus far, only one candidate, Amy Klobuchar, has explicitly stated she would not support the legislation, while Democrats including Kamala Harris, Elizabeth Warren, Kirsten Gillibrand, and Cory Booker have expressed their support.

But a seventh potential candidate in 2020, Ohio Democratic Sen. "It would seem to me we would then have a situation where the FAA could say for example, you know what, vacation travel, that's not essential". Ed Markey of MA, the proposal calls for dramatic steps to virtually eliminate United States greenhouse gas emissions by 2030. The ambitious proposal has been spearheaded by Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez.

Since the Green New Deal resolution was introduced last week, President Donald Trump, Republican lawmakers, and right-wing pundits have spread hysterical falsehoods about the measure and decried it as a "socialist fever dream" that would be political suicide for Democrats to support.

" Motown was an historically black label and the bulk of that Motown tribute was by Jennifer Lopez ", another critic said . Despite Robinson's defense of Lopez, many took to Twitter after the performance and offered a scorching critique.


Among the array of progressive policy aims called for under the Green New Deal are a complete shift to renewable and zero-emissions energy sources, a massive effort to revamp American infrastructure, a federal jobs guarantee and a goal of carbon neutrality by 2030.

"Broadly speaking, a vote on the resolution will do little more for Republicans than further elevate an issue on which they're deeply at odds with public opinion". But Trump's comments referred to a fact sheet of "Frequently Asked Questions" distributed by Ocasio-Cortez's office prior to a news conference last week.

As soon as the ridiculousness of the bill was pointed out, Ocasio-Cortez immediately had the bill yanked off of her website and republished it, accusing Republicans of spreading fake information about her legislation. "So, look, the political stunts are not going to get us anywhere".

"Along with abolishing farting cows, beefing up high-speed rail so that airplanes can be banned is a key element in the proposal, " the National Republican Congressional Committee said Tuesday. The legislation is widely expected to get voted down by a wide margin. Rather than expose of rift in the party, 43 Democrats made a decision to vote "present" as a show of frustration with the politically motivated maneuver. Ocasio-Cortez subsequently paired up with Markey to begin working on the resolution.

Connecticut Sen. Chris Murphy, another cosponsor of the Green New Deal who has said he has no plans to run, told CNN's Jake Tapper on Sunday he thinks some version of the plan is "absolutely realistic".

But, noting that the Green New Deal is extremely popular among the US public-with one survey showing that 57 percent of Republican voters and 81 percent of Americans overall support the ambitious idea-Markey concluded that "Republicans, climate deniers, and the fossil fuel industry are going to end up on the wrong side of history".
