Debate Fact Check: Biden campaign website calls Green New Deal ‘a crucial framework’

Sept. 29, 2020, Fairfax, Va.—Americans for Limited Government President Rick Manning issued the following statement in response to former Vice President Joe Biden’s claim in the first debate that “The Green New Deal is not my plan,” noting that on JoeBiden.com, his official campaign website, it clearly states “Biden believes the Green New Deal is a crucial framework for meeting the climate challenges we face”:

“Joe Biden is lying. Right on Joe Biden’s website, it says, ‘Biden believes the Green New Deal is a crucial framework for meeting the climate challenges we face,’ promising to cut carbon emissions in half by 2035. While it’s little wonder why Biden would want to run away from an idea that ultimately endorses eliminating the internal combustion engine plus coal and other fossil fuels as a source of electricity, it is beyond belief that the former Vice President is not familiar with his own campaign’s economy-killing policy proposals. Maybe it really is the Harris-Biden campaign.”
