GOP offers ridiculous response to Green New Deal

There’s plenty to debate regarding the Green New Deal, including the botched roll-out and its lack of specificity.

But the response from the GOP, particularly in the Senate, has been embarrassing.

The Republicans have never taken climate change seriously, and most Senators in the GOP just wanted to try to score political points leading up to a vote on the Green New Deal orchestrated by Mitch McConnell as a political stunt.

But it backfired, as the GOP Senators came across as clueless buffoons trying to stop progress. Senator Mike Lee (R-Utah) stole the show with a ridiculous floor speech talking about dinosaurs and having more babies.

The general outline of a Green New Deal as proposed by Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has many flaws, but the GOP’s response has been to demonize AOC as opposed to offering any real counter-proposals.
