Vice President Mike Pence have a speech about the Green New Dean and Socialism to the Oil and Gas annual meeting on Friday. Pence gave a warning to the crowd of the rise of Socialism into our society.
Pence stated, “It’s probably becoming obvious to you too that the choice we face could not be clearer. It is remarkable to think that as we gather today, many liberals in Washington, DC, are openly advocating an economic system that has impoverished millions around the world.”
Pence continued, “Under the guise of what’s called Medicare for All or the Green New Deal, liberals in Washington, DC, and in the national debate are embracing the same tired economic theories that have impoverished nations and have stifled the liberties of millions. And that system is socialism.”
Pence exclaimed, “What they’re actually offering is just more of the same — it’s more taxes, more spending, and more government, and less freedom.”
pence continued his speech to establish freedom not socialism has solved the worlds problems.
But I say from my heart what Americans have known for generations:
It was freedom, not socialism, that gave us the most prosperous economy in the history of the world.
It was freedom, not socialism, that ended slavery, won two world wars, and stands today as a beacon of hope for all the world.
It was freedom, not socialism, that’s moving us beyond the prejudices of the past to create a more perfect union and extend the blessings of liberty to every American.
And it was freedom, not socialism, that gave us the highest quality of life, the cleanest environment on Earth, and improved the health and wellbeing of millions around the world.
So we must say, as the president has said, America will never be a socialist country.
Pence concluded his speech slamming the Medicare for all policy.
“The truth is, what Medicare for All really means is quality health care for none. And the only thing green about the Green New Deal is how much green it’s going to cost all of us if they ever pass it into law.”
