ㅤ"’The American people will see, they will see which of their senators can do the common sense thing and vote no on this destructive socialist daydream. And they will see which senators are so fully committed to radical left-wing ideology that they can’t even vote no on self-inflicted economic ruin,’ Mitch McConnell said."
ㅤ”The AFL-CIO Energy Committee has issued a letter to the Democrats pushing for a Green New Deal, rejecting the proposal as ‘not achievable or realistic,’ according to the Washington Examiner.
ㅤThe AFL-CIO’s letter was written on behalf of eight other unions, including North America’s Building Trades Unions and United Steelworkers, and sent to Sen. Ed Markey, D-Mass., and Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., who introduced the Green New Deal resolution last month.
ㅤ’We welcome the call for labor rights and dialogue with labor, but the Green New Deal resolution is far too short on specific solutions the speak to the jobs our members and the critical sectors of the economy,’ the AFL-CIO said in the letter. ‘We will not accept proposals that could cause immediate harm to millions of our members and their families. We will not stand by and allow threats to our members’ jobs and their families’ standard of living go unanswered.'”
