WASHINGTON — U.S. Sen. Ron Johnson (R-Wis.) said the following after voting against Democrats’ so-called “Green New Deal” in the Senate Tuesday:

“It is astonishing that so many Democrats — including most of their announced presidential candidates — co-sponsored the Green New Deal, but then unanimously failed to vote for it. If Democrats hypocritically say they support their $93 trillion spending boondoggle but then don’t vote for it, no American should take them or the Green New Deal seriously.”

Despite being endorsed by leading Democrats throughout the party, including many presidential candidates, the Green New Deal received zero votes on Tuesday, failing by a tally of 0-57, with 43 Democrats merely voting “present.”
