WASHINGTON, D.C. — In response to the reintroduction of the Green New Deal today by Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-N.Y.) and Sen. Ed Markey (D-Mass.), Adam Brandon, FreedomWorks President, commented:
“After forcing American businesses to close — many shuttered for good — over the past year and change, Green New Deal advocates now want to all but eliminate the private sector in favor of a centrally planned collectivist nightmare, imposed on our free nation in the name of ‘climate change.’
“This Marxist proposal is no less flabbergasting now than it was when it was first unveiled last Congress. As Rep. Ocasio-Cortez was forced to remove her embarrassing ‘fact’ sheet from her website in 2019, we suggest that she abandon her fantasies of this government-run dystopia as well.
“As is par for the course for the left, the Green New Deal — while it purports to be about climate change — in fact goes far beyond its stated goals, acting as a Trojan horse for wholly government-run healthcare, ‘free’ college, and a federal jobs guarantee. All of this would cost the average American family nearly $600,000 to pay for the $93 trillion behemoth over the next decade.”
