Senator David Perdue: Green New Deal Is Nothing More Than A Socialist Wish List

WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senator David Perdue (R-GA), a member of the Senate Budget Committee, comments on the Green New Deal: 

“Our national debt topped $22 trillion last month, and some in Washington still refuse to accept the fact that we are in a full-blown crisis. The Green New Deal is nothing more than a Socialist wish list that could cost the American people tens of trillions of dollars and would crush our economy. Not a single Senate Democrat was willing to go on the record today in support of this radical proposal. I never dreamed we’d be debating socialism versus capitalism in America during my lifetime, but Washington has reached a new low. Instead of wasting time on outrageous ‘spend-now, spend-later, spend-often’ policies, we have to get serious about tackling the debt crisis before it’s too late.”

In February, Senator Perdue addressed the expensive, radical Green New Deal on Fox Business Mornings with Maria. Watch here
