Sen. Ed Markey (D-MA) is not happy about Majority Leader McConnell’s decision to bring the Green New Deal up for a vote. Markey co-authored the Green New Deal, which was introduced last week. Congresswoman Ocasio-Cortez is the House sponsor of the “bill.”

Via his official Twitter account, Markey accused Republicans of “sabotaging” the “movement” he’s working to build by rushing a vote on the legislation.

To the tweets:

Not sure where Markey’s been, but the Green New Deal has done nothing to further serious discourse on climate change, quite the opposite. The tenets of the bill are so absurd, it’s been roundly and rightly mocked. And so has Markey for fussing over the fact that his ridiculous piece of “legislation” is getting airtime on the Senate floor at all.


And also:

Still chuckling over McConnell’s little grin when he announced the Senate would be bringing the Green New Deal up for a vote.
