Democrats are freaking out over the prospect of an upcoming Senate vote on the Green New Deal, especially the proposal’s co-sponsor Sen. Ed Markey (Mass.).

“Don’t let Mitch McConnell fool you: this is nothing but an attempt to sabotage the movement we are building,” Markey warned Wednesday.

“He wants to silence your voice so Republicans don’t have to explain why they are climate change deniers. McConnell wants this to be the end, this is just the beginning.”

Bizarrely, Markey not only claimed that holding a high-profile public Senate vote on the proposal would somehow “silence” the far-left, he also insisted it would “avoid a true national debate.”

“This isn’t a new Republican trick. By rushing a vote on the #GreenNewDeal resolution, Republicans want to avoid a true national debate & kill our efforts to organize. We’re having the first national conversation on climate change in a decade. We can’t let Republicans sabotage it.”

In reality, holding a vote would do just the opposite.

By holding a vote on socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s signature proposal, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is forcing the Democrat Party to put their far-left beliefs on the record.

But why would Democrats not want to vote on legislation they’ve been championing for the last week?

Because it would expose and separate the Democrats who’ve been politically posturing on the proposal from the far-left wing vying for power, potentially creating a rift within the party.

Several users on Twitter pointed out as much.

“This is called a backfire. You’re admitting you sponsored a bill you didn’t want a vote on,” one user said. “Now you and all your friends have to go on record voting for the Green New Deal monstrosity that would destroy our country OR admit you’re hypocrites. Mitch McConnell is undefeated.”

“Hello Ed….IT IS YOUR LEGISLATION…..normally people that sponsor legislation want a vote on it……BUT then again you are a Democrat, which might explain your angst,” said another.

The Democrats will either scare off independent and moderate voters with their radical plan by voting for it, or anger their far-left base by voting against it.
