Republican senators praise spending deal as path to Trump border request

ICE police

The 17-member committee, comprising members of both House and Senate appropriations committees reached a deal "on principle" late Monday evening, which was swiftly excoriated by many conservative analysts on cable news and social media. We're having the first national conversation on climate change in a decade. Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D., Calif.) seemed to downplay the deal, referring to the bill as a "green dream".

The Green New Deal doesn't entirely halt the use of coal or oil, but seeks to offset that pollution through increasing forests, which absorb carbon dioxide.

"It will be one of several or maybe many suggestions that we receive".

"We welcome the enthusiasm that is there", she said in a news conference last week, later adding, "I'm very excited about it all, and I welcome the Green New Deal and any other proposals that people have out there".

Democrat and Republican establishment favored the deal, not surprisingly.

The Green New Deal would do none of those things, according to The Washington Post's Fact Checker, which analyzed what's actually in the proposal. "The Green New Deal resolution has struck a powerful chord in this country, and Republicans, climate deniers, and the fossil fuel industry are going to end up on the wrong side of history".

Republicans largely remained silent on the Green New Deal late a year ago when Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) and a cadre of left-leaning Democrats began demanding a select committee in the House devoted to the proposal.

When the resolution came out on Thursday, roughly 65 House Democrats co-sponsored it, while fewer than a dozen senators did the same. However, it's received far less support and more pause from moderate Democrats while receiving criticism from Republicans. His status as the vice chair of the bipartisan Problem Solvers Caucus suggests he could help woo Republican support for the measure. A spokesman for the majority leader told HuffPost on Tuesday that he will not be writing his own legislation to address the threat posed by global warming.

After widespread ridicule, Ocasio-Cortez removed from her congressional website an FAQ summarizing the plan. The ambitious proposal has been spearheaded by Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. "I really don't like their policy of taking away your auto, of taking away your airplane rights, of 'let's hop a train to California, ' of you're not allowed to own cows anymore!"

"Republicans don't want to debate climate change, they only want to deny it", Markey said in a statement. Say goodbye to dairy, to beef, to family farms, to ranches.

Sen. John Barrasso, R-Wyo., chairman of the Environment and Public Works Committee, however, called the plan "raw deal" that would drive "a stake into the heart of our economy", Politico reported.
