Mitch McConnell discusses the Green New Deal vote

The Senate is going to hold a vote on the Green New Deal, the energy plan championed by progressive Democrats. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell told reporters on Tuesday that he planned to set up a vote on the bill in a move that many people see as a way to force lawmakers to take a stance on the controversial proposal, according to the Hill.
