Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D, NY) is terrified of the upcoming Senate vote on her New Green Deal proposal that she has laid before the House. She has her fear on display in this tweet of hers:
The GOP’s whole game of wasting votes in Congress to target others “on the record”, for leg [legislation] they have no intent to pass, is a disgrace. Stop wasting the American peoples’ time + learn to govern. Our jobs aren’t for campaigning, & that’s exactly what these bluff-votes are for.
Apparently, Progressive-Democrats’ jobs aren’t for actually voting on the proposals they make. It seems that Progressive-Democrat proposals aren’t actually serious policy ideas; they’re just virtue signaling.
There’s this, too, from some number of Progressive-Democratic Senators:
Some Democrats said they plan to vote “present” on the resolution to signal their opposition to what they call a “sham” vote….
These guys, if they follow through with just kicking back with their feet up on their Senate desks, will be doing more than just cowering away from being on the record in the man-caused climate debate. They’ll be betraying their constituents who hired them and sent them to the Senate to do more substantive things than just being…present.
Is that why, maybe, that Progressive-Democrat are so terrified of folks actually going on the record on Ocasio-Cortez’ “climate” proposal? Is that why, maybe, that climatistas, including other Progressive-Democrats, are so terrified of differing opinions on the state and trend of our climate—terrified to the extent that they’re trying to make disagreeing with them on climate a crime?
Because they might be found to be who they really are?
