John Calvin puts forward a very simple reason why love is the greatest gift: “Because faith and hope are our own: love is diffused among others.” In other words, faith and hope benefit the possessor, but love always benefits another. In John 13:34–35 Jesus says, “A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.” Love always requires an “other” as an object; love cannot remain within itself, and that is part of what makes love the greatest gift.

Democratic New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez claimed on Tuesday not a single Senate Democrat voted in favor of the Green New Deal because she asked them to vote “present.”

“Because I encouraged them to vote present, along w/ others,” Ocasio-Cortez responded when Republican Wyoming Sen. John Barrasso asked her why Democrats ducked going on the Senate record in support of her radical anti-climate change resolution.

Because I encouraged them to vote present, along w/ others.

McConnell tried to rush the #GreenNewDeal straight to the floor without a hearing.

The real question we should be asking: Why does the Senate GOP refuse to hold any major hearings on climate change? https://t.co/de8oKOXeJf

“[Senate Majority Leader Mitch] McConnell tried to rush the #GreenNewDeal straight to the floor without a hearing,” she continued. “The real question we should be asking: Why does the Senate GOP refuse to hold any major hearings on climate change?”

The New York Congresswoman’s response came only hours after the Senate voted 57 to 0 to kill the Green New Deal, which was introduced by Ocasio-Cortez and Democratic Massachusetts Sen. Ed Markey. Three Democrats voted against the resolution:  Arizona Sen. Kyrsten Sinema, West Virginia Sen. Joe Manchin and Alabama Sen. Doug Jones. The remaining Democrats, including Markey, all voted present.

Ocasio-Cortez also attacked Republicans on Saturday for bringing her proposal to the Senate floor for a vote.

“The GOP’s whole game of wasting votes in Congress to target others “on the record”, for leg they have no intent to pass, is a disgrace,” Ocasio-Cortez tweeted at the time. “Stop wasting the American peoples’ time + learn to govern. Our jobs aren’t for campaigning, & that’s exactly what these bluff-votes are for.”

Prior to the vote, McConnell expressed his pleasure for the impending Senate vote, calling it a “radical, top-down, socialist makeover of the entire U.S. economy.”

McConnell’s campaign account responded to Ocasio-Cortez on twitter saying “”im not owned! im not owned!!” with a photograph of her face morphing into a corncob.

The Green New Deal was garbage legislation and was given its due consideration.  Just another attempt at the left at somehow spinning failure into some sort of positive.
