PETER DOOCY (FOX NEWS CORRESPONDENT): The cost of the Green New Deal is the one part of it that Democrats seem to get defensive about. Senator Cory Booker told me that it's a lie when critics say that it might be too expensive, but he and all the other 2020 Democrats are going to have a chance to go on the record with their support because Mitch McConnell plans to bring the resolution up for a vote in the Senate sometime very soon. Potentially in the next couple days. 

ERIC SHAWN (GUEST CO-HOST): All right and, Peter, besides Senator Booker, what are the other Democrats saying about this? 

DOOCY: That, basically, you have to spend money by tearing down every structure in the United States so that it is eco-friendlier to save money and then, eventually, save the planet.
