Green New Deal would cost America everything

March 26, 2019, Fairfax, Va.—Americans for Limited Government President Rick Manning today issued the following statement urging the Senate to reject the Green New Deal in a vote being held later today:

“The Green New Deal will cost our nation everything: The ability of individuals to choose the way they travel, food choices at the dinner table, restricted home electricity consumption, how we build our homes, offices and every building in the country, ending speedy delivery of most of our purchases and so forth. It is a takeover of very aspect of our lives and the economy, ending individual free market choices. The Green New Deal turns what is supposed to be a constitutionally limited federal government into an all-powerful Leviathan. Proponents say they want to get to net zero carbon emissions in 10 years, and we should take them seriously. Socialism’s historic failure is rooted in the fact that it inherently deprives people of freedom, choice, property and opportunity. The Green New Deal is yet another rationale for a failed system that results in enslavement and deprivation of the people — and it must be rejected.”
