FreedomWorks Pre-Debate Statement in Anticipation of 2020 South Carolina Democratic Debate

WASHINGTON, D.C. — In anticipation of the 2020 South Carolina Democratic Debate, Adam Brandon, FreedomWorks President, commented:

"For starters, we’ll hear tonight that socialism works, while history tells us it doesn’t. Additionally, not a single candidate will explain how they realistically plan to pay for their exorbitant proposals.

“At some point, all candidates will blindly ignore the fact that Americans are better off today than they were four years ago. Lastly, one candidate (Bernie Sanders), will attempt to ignore the gross human rights violations inherent in socialism, particularly in Cuba."

FreedomWorks is pleased to also announce tonight a pre-debate chart ranking Democratic candidates’ policy proposals based on various metrics. This will be updated at the conclusion of tonight’s debate should circumstances surrounding the 2020 Democratic Primary change.
