    But it won’t happen because governance requires compromise.

    Also, despite the right wing rhetoric, most of the stuff in the resolution is not that bad.

    Right. I don't see why Democrats would be embarrassed to vote for it. I think most people share the goals. Implementation would certainly involve industry. I doubt it would be any more socialist than other things we've done.

    Realistically, there would have to be compromises. But there's nothing wrong with having these as goals.

    I'm pretty sure in private some Republicans would support it, though I doubt they'd dare vote for it.

    Hey, there you go. Read it once already and read/viewed her responses as to how all that will be implemented. Left wing media has been rather... shy perhaps... to report her interviews/responses. Seems she likes to talk about her views holding back very little if anything.

    Maybe McConnell is learning something. Pushing for a vote is a rather Trumpian method for exposure that Congress is not used to seeing.
