U.S. The Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, DN.Y., has been involved in Republican Congress on Saturday in search of a "bluff" vote for his proposed Green New Deal – a move that other Democrats also ridiculed as a political axillary .
"The whole GOP game of wasting votes in Congress to target others 'on record', for leg [legislation] they have no purpose to pass, is a shame , "Ocasio-Cortez tweeted. "Stop wasting Americans' time to learn to manage. Our jobs are not for the campaign, and that's exactly what bluff-votes for."
The freshman Democrats have touted Green New Deal as an effort to get rid of the US of greenhouse gas emissions while generating millions of high paying jobs. Ocasio-Cortez referred to climate change as a "generational" issue, described it as "our World War II" for the younger.
The Republican fought the ambitious plan as socialism and cited its price tag which could reach trillion dollars.
There is almost no shot in the Senate, which will require 60 votes to advance. The Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., Is scheduled to vote on a scheme plan for Monday, when the senators return after a one-week recess.
"Leader McConnell thinks that the Green New Deal is just a resolution of the Green New Deal is a revolution," says US Sen Edward Edwardey, D-Mass., One of the leading plan authors. "The Green New Deal is moving forward with a strong chord in this country, and it is a conscious movement of young people who are ready to do the fix for the issue for their generation."
The law exists as an unrecognized resolution, which does not require government to do anything.

By pushing for a vote, McConnell expects to see how far Democrats want to align themselves with the new progressive wing of the party.
"Just a well-fashioned, country-oriented country. Nature's diversity of the 20th century," McConnell said in a recent speech. "Our Democratic colleagues have taken all the philosophies of the debunked of the past hundred years, combined them into a giant package, and threw a small & # 39; green & # 39; paint on them to make new ones these."

Some Democrats say they plan to vote "current" in the resolution to imply their opposition to what they call "sham" falling that attempts to release the debate to the public by blocking public hearings or witnesses the consequences of climate change.
