Pence, at CPAC, slams Dems over Green New Deal: ‘That system is socialism’


Vice President Pence, addressing the Conservative Political Action Conference on Friday, accused Democrats of openly advocating for socialism with far-left policies such as “Medicare-for-all” and the Green New Deal — a system he said had “impoverished millions of people around the world.”

“Under the guise of Medicare-for-all and a Green New Deal, Democrats are embracing the same tired economic theories that have impoverished nations and stifled the liberties of millions over the past century,” Pence told the CPAC audience outside Washington. “That system is socialism.”

He pointed in particular to the Democratic 2020 presidential candidates, many of whom have backed the Green New Deal and Medicare-for-all in some form, and accused them of having “papered over the failed policies of socialism with bumper-sticker slogans and slick social media campaigns.”

“But what they’re actually offering is just more of the same: more taxes, more spending, more government and less freedom,” he said.
