Top Senate Dem On the Green New Deal: ‘What in the Heck Is This?’

Senate Minority Whip Dick Durbin (D-IL) does not appear to be a fan of Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) and Sen. Ed Markey’s (D-MA) Green New Deal, telling MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” as much during an interview on Wednesday.

“I’ve read it, and I’ve reread it, and I asked Ed Markey, ‘What in the heck is this?’” Durbin said.

MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough interjected that Durbin sounded like Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), who has referred to the Green New Deal as the “green dream.”

Durbin then explained that Markey told him the Green New Deal is an “aspiration,” which Scarborough pointed out isn’t something that Congress votes on.
