They are running for cover.
According to Breitbart News, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell slammed Democrats for not letting Republicans “fund hospitals or save small businesses unless they get to dust off the Green New Deal.”
McConnell said, “Here are some of the items on the Democratic wishlist over which they choose to block this legislation last night. Tax credits for solar energy and wind energy, provisions to force employers to give special, new treatment to big labor, and listen to this, new emissions standards for the airlines.”
She added, “Are you kidding me? This is the moment to debate new regulations that have nothing whatsoever to do with this crisis? That’s what they’re up to over there. The American people need to know it. Democrats won’t let us fund hospitals or save small businesses unless they get to dust off the Green New Deal.” You can watch a clip of McConnells remarks here.
