Green New Deal stalls in Senate after largely political debate
(CNN) -- Senators had a spirited debate Tuesday over the merits of the Green New Deal, a broad policy proposal from liberal Democrats to battle climate change and other social ills but in the end, no one voted to advance the measure and it stalled. Four senators who caucus with the Democrats joined all 53 Republicans in voting "no" because they object to the far-reaching plan, which Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell labeled "a socialist makeover of the entire US economy."
