The Senate failed to move forward on the House-passed “Green New Deal” resolution, with no senators voting for it. Fifty-seven voted “no,” all 53 Republicans, 3 Democrats, and independent Senator Angus King (ME). Forty-two Democrats and independent Senator Bernie Sanders (VT) voted “present. Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) held the procedural vote in an effort to get Democrats on the record in support of the proposal.
