Washington, D.C. — After ceremoniously introducing the Green New Deal, and all but canonizing it as a historic policy proposal, 43 Senate Democrats today voted “Present.” U.S. Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) issued the following statement regarding the vote:
 
“Today’s vote makes clear that even the Green New Deal’s proponents agree that it is not a serious policy effort. Instead, it is a publicity stunt designed to pander to a progressive base seeking to repackage socialism that will do nothing to address the actual problems Americans face every day. The Green New Deal makes for a great slogan, but it is a fundamentally unserious proposal. If actually implemented, it would bankrupt our nation and leave our communities more vulnerable. That cannot, and will not, be the future of America.”
