U.S. Representative Lauren Boebert Slams the Reintroduction of the Green New Deal

On April 21st, Representative Lauren Boebert (CO-03) issued the following statement on the reintroduction of the Green New Deal:

“When Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Senator Bernie Sanders first brought up the Green New Deal, it sounded like a leftist pipe dream. After a year of Democrats rubber-stamping trillions of dollars of so-called COVID relief, they believe that they can get away with burning $93 trillion in the first 10 years of the Green New Deal. This uncontrolled spending is a disaster for our national debt, and it would cost the average American family over $60,000 per year, but Democrats don’t care—they’d rather appease environmental extremists than worry about your financial wellbeing.

“If Speaker Pelosi’s Congress is dumb enough to pass the Green New Deal and Joe Biden is dumb enough to sign it, say goodbye to hamburgers, airplanes, plastic straws, small farms, a dependable electric grid, national security, cars, and common sense.

“The Green New Deal would usher the entire country into a literal energy dark age, and California-style blackouts would become routine nationwide. Let’s learn from history and take a look at other infamous socialist central-planning experiments like China’s Great Leap Forward or the Soviet Union’s Five-Year Plan. Like those two disasters, the Green New Deal would cripple our country and sacrifice Americans on the altar of environmental extremism.”
