Conservative radio host Rush Limbaugh cheered Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell for scheduling a vote on the Democrats' Green New Deal proposal.

One day after McConnell said he would hold a vote on the progressive bill that would curb air travel, cut all fossil fuel use, and establish additional entitlement programs, Limbaugh said the move was a stroke of genius.

McConnell "called for a vote in the Senate on the Green New Deal, and the Democrats are having a cow! Ed Markey, who is the Senate co-sponsor of the Green New Deal with Ocasio-Cortez, is livid that he's calling a vote on it," Limbaugh said on his radio show Wednesday.

"Here's [McConnell] saying, you guys say we've got 12 years, we better get a vote on this. I mean, clearly 'The Turtle' is trying to kill this, and they understand it," Limbaugh added, using his nickname to describe McConnell.

The resolution was introduced by freshman Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y. Republicans and even some Democrats have said its aggressive goals to eradicate fossil fuels within a decade and retrofit every home and building during that same time period to use green energy are impossible to meet.
