Washington, DC – Today, Congressman Doug Lamborn (CO-05) released the following statement regarding House Democrats introducing the Green New Deal:

"Today we all got our first chance to see what Speaker Pelosi calls "the green dream" but  in reality we know what this is – a social and economic nightmare. This resolution makes grand socialistic promises of jobs for everyone, free college, and prosperity while calling for policies that we know will bankrupt our economy, destroy jobs, and destabilize the nation. It's an irresponsible proposal that I will not support."
