What we’re up against in 2020
By U.S. Senator David Perdue
I never thought we would be debating capitalism versus socialism in my lifetime. However, after watching the Democratic presidential debates this week, it has become clear that we are in an ideological war for the future of our Republic.
Throughout the current presidential campaign, Democrats have proposed increasingly radical socialist policies.
Bernie Sanders said “you’re damn right” he would end private health insurance.
Elizabeth Warren said she would “get rid of the Electoral College.”
Kamala Harris said packing the Supreme Court with liberal justices is “on the table.”
Democrats are promising to decriminalize illegal border crossings and provide free health care to those here illegally. They are promising higher taxes. They are promising to effectively legalize infanticide. They have supported a “Green New Deal,” which would crush our economy and hit working families hardest.
The irony is that these socialist policies have always failed the very people they claim to champion: the working middle class and the working poor.
