However, those documents, which were generated by Ocasio-Cortez's staff, have been fodder for Republicans who were already skeptical of the resolution goals to cut greenhouse-gas emissions to net-zero over 10 years, while transitioning to a renewable energy economy that would guarantee jobs for all Americans.
The Green New Deal - a set of policy recommendations that calls on the U.S. to make efforts to reduce the use of fossil fuels to fight climate change - fell short of the votes it needed for a debate in the Senate. Kamala Harris of California, Cory Booker of New Jersey, Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts, Amy Klobuchar of Minnesota and Kirsten Gillibrand of NY - all candidates for the Democratic nomination who have endorsed the Green New Deal - voted "present" Tuesday.
The motion to proceed failed, with every Republican voting against the resolution along with Democrats Joe Manchin of West Virginia, Doug Jones of Alabama, Kyrsten Sinema of Arizona, and Angus King, an independent from ME who caucuses with Democrats. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell called the proposal "a radical, top-down, socialist makeover of the entire U.S. economy".
The Republican Party has no plan to deal with climate change other than just attack the people looking for solutions.
Ocasio-Cortez is not on the House committee directly focused on combating climate change.
"LOL. "I encouraged" Democrats to not vote for my bill". Almost 200 countries have signed the pact, but President Donald Trump announced in mid-2017 he would withdraw the United States because it's a "bad deal" for the US economy.
Republicans on Capitol Hill have also seized on a series of talking points Ocasio-Cortez's office accidentally circulated about the resolution that included financial support for Americans "unwilling to work" and for policies like building out high-speed rail so "air travel stops becoming necessary". "As far as our finances, people often say that, but it allows us to provide for our neighbors and our community".
As climate change takes on a new urgency in Democratic politics ahead of the 2020 primary, Hickenlooper's record on energy and the environment is likely to continue to be an issue for his long-shot presidential campaign. As CNN's Anderson Cooper noted during his Tuesday show, Lee may not be the first politician to bring "giant novelty-size posters" to the Senate floor, but he took the approach "to a whole new level".

Mike Trout, Angels reportedly finalizing a record 12-year, $430 million extension
Trout's salary will average almost $36 million per year, passing the $34.4 average annual value of Arizona's Zack Greinke . Trout, a native of Vineland, N.J., grew up a diehard Phillies fan and some thought he would join Harper in Philadelphia.
A day after the Senate blocked consideration of the Green New Deal, lawmakers from both parties were still talking about climate change.
Jonathan Chait, a writer for New York Magazine, tweeted, "Mike Lee's speech against the Green New Deal is a good reminder that being one of the brighest Republican senators doesn't make you actually bright".
Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is about as annoying as they come.
Ocasio-Cortez shot back, noting that a year ago, she'd been bartending in Manhattan.
Some Democrats and environmental groups want to see proposals that are more concrete that non-binding resolutions like the Green New Deal.
Sen. Mike Lee (R-UT) mocked Ocasio-Cortez's plan, which Democratic presidential candidates are now saying sets the us up for "failure", during a speech on the Senate floor which drew condemnation from Ocasio-Cortez.
