FreedomWorks Statement in Response to Senate Vote on the Green New Deal

WASHINGTON, D.C. — In response to the Senate’s vote today on the Green New Deal, Adam Brandon, FreedomWorks President, commented:

“When faced with their signature proposal, Democrats were too embarrassed to even commit to it. Democrats have made clear to their base that they are all talk and no game. According to Senate Democrats, simply holding a vote on the Green New Deal amounts to an act of Republican sabotage.

“The Green New Deal is a Marxist vision for American society that would kill millions of jobs and reverse decades of economic progress. Even groups like big labor agree. The Democratic Party grows more out of touch with everyday Americans after each half-baked, big government idea they come up with.“
