VP Debate: Freedom and opportunity vs. socialist enslavement

Oct. 7, 2020, Fairfax, Va.—Americans for Limited Government President Rick Manning today issued the following statement reacting to tonight’s Vice Presidential debate between Vice President Mike Pence and Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.):

“Tonight’s debate between Vice President Pence and Senator Harris was a direct contrast between conservative Midwestern values and San Francisco, California values. Pence’s steady, low-key leadership is the perfect balance for President Trump as he leads America on his bold agenda. Senator Harris’ main distinctions were being named the most liberal senator in a Senate that includes socialist Bernie Sanders and attacking Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh in what was nothing more than a #MeToo witch hunt.

“Once again Senator Kamala Harris joined Joe Biden in refusing to pledge to not pack the Supreme Court eliminating the independence of the judiciary.  Once again, Senator Kamala Harris tried to have it both ways when she said that they would end the Trump tax cut which cut taxes for middle class Americans by $2,000 on average, while denying that their policy is a tax hike on the middle class.  And finally, she and former Vice President Biden want to tell the public that they won’t destroy America’s energy independence through imposing the Green New Deal which Harris eagerly co-sponsored, yet their website still says that the Green New Deal underpins their climate policy which is endorsed by Green New Deal authors Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Bernie Sanders.

“America has been given a choice of competing visions for the future. Vice President Pence represents the hope of freedom and opportunity in line with the DNA of America. California Senator Harris represents the failed Marxist philosophy that impoverishes and enslaves people wherever it is tried in the world.  Mike Pence represents the solid middle American values that have made America great, and Harris promises to impose San Francisco values on the rest of America.  The choice is clear.”
