Sean Casten: Socialism is Lovely
Carly Atchison | February 8, 2019

Sean Casten thinks the socialist Green New Deal is “lovely,” but to which part is he referring exactly?

Turning all airports into museums? Abolishing farting cows? Paying those who are “unwilling” to work? The choo-choo train to Hawaii? Replacing each building in the country, including every home and business in Illinois? Shuttering the nuclear power plants that generate 53% of all electricity in Illinois and the coal and gas plants that generate another 40%?

NRCC Comment: “Sean Casten might think tearing down every home and business in IL-06 and a fantasy choo-choo train to Hawaii would be lovely, but that only goes to show how desperately out of touch he is with Illinoisans. The Green New Deal is nothing more than Democrats’ latest attempt at a socialist takeover, guaranteed to eliminate thousands of jobs and raise taxes on hardworking Illinois families and the middle class.” -NRCC Spokeswoman Carly Atchison
