McConnell Shows His Cards: I Hope Trump Will Sign Bipartisan Border Bill

Last week, New York Democratic Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Massachusetts Democratic Senator Ed Markey introduced legislation that would push the United States to achieve net-zero greenhouse gas emissions within the next ten years. It also calls for upgrading all existing buildings to be energy-efficient. The GOP-controlled Senate scheduled a symbolic vote on single-payer health care legislation in 2017, a decision also meant to put prominent liberals on the spot, and in January brought up foreign policy legislation that took on the boycott movement against Israel. Sherrod Brown, pointedly declined Tuesday to attach his name and dismissed liberal activists' contention that he has to support the Green New Deal in order to prove his commitment to the issue.

In July of 2017, Republicans brought forward a single-payer health care amendment for a vote, which failed 0-57, all Democrats voting against it. Minority Leader Chuck Schumer slammed the maneuver as "pure cynicism, pure politics" at the time.

Broadly speaking, Democrats do support action on climate change - two-thirds say it "should be a top priority for Trump and Congress this year" - but the question is whether they will support the Green New Deal as they learn more about it.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., announced Tuesday that he wants the Senate to vote on a massive plan to fight climate change. "How are we getting to Hawaii on a train?" "It's going to take that kind of effort to ensure that we meet our commitments".

Huawei says security issues could take five years to resolve
It states that Chinese organisations are obliged to "support, cooperate with, and collaborate in, national intelligence work". It is likely that Trump may sign an order banning use of Chinese telecom equipment in USA networks citing security issues.

One student had a more serious view of the plan, saying, "if we didn't do that, we're going to be killing ourselves". And in earlier votes on former President Barack Obama's budget proposals, Democrats refused to play ball and voted no, protesting what they saw as a political ploy by McConnell.

There's been word the resolution might not even get a vote in the Democratic-controlled House.

"To me, this is just so extreme", said John Barrasso of Wyoming. A woman described a date with Ansari, which she said ended with him pressuring her into performing oral sex. Ocasio-Cortez's spokesman also sent reporters a memo in which the congresswoman's office contradicted the resolution by taking positions on agricultural emissions, nuclear energy and air travel that did not appear in the formal legislation.
