FreedomWorks Responds to the Democratic Presidential Debate

Following the conclusion of the Democratic presidential debate in Las Vegas on Tuesday evening, FreedomWorks CEO Adam Brandon commented:

“Anyone who tuned into the Democratic presidential debate tonight hoping to hear ideas about how to achieve real economic growth was no doubt disappointed. Unfortunately, what we heard was a recipe for disaster; more budget-busting spending increases and tax hikes that will do little more than cripple the middle class.”

“It’s baffling that this crop of Democratic presidential candidates, most of whom boast of themselves as so-called ‘progressives,’ can get away with promoting policies that will be regressive for hardworking Americans.”

FreedomWorks aims to educate, build, and mobilize the largest network of activists advocating the principles of smaller government, lower taxes, free markets, personal liberty, and the rule of law. For more information, please visit or contact Jason Pye at
