ICYMI: Blackburn On Fox Business: Tennesseans Don’t Want The Green New Deal Or New Mandates

August 11, 2021

WASHINGTON, D.C. – U.S. Senator Marsha Blackburn (R-Tenn.) joined Fox Business to discuss her “no” votes on the Democrats’ multi-trillion dollar tax-and-spend plans.



Watch the full interview here.


Tennesseans Wanted True Infrastructure, Not Socialist Mandates


“When they brought forward the infrastructure bill, it was about 25 percent infrastructure. The rest of it had to do with a socialist agenda. I called it the gateway to socialism — a lot of Green New Deal in there, new mandates, $160 billion in new fees, a $256 billion deficit. You know, it is something too expensive to afford. What Tennesseans wanted to see was a bill that was all about infrastructure — roads, and highways, and rivers, and runways, railways, broadband — true infrastructure. They don't want the Green New Deal, and they do not want all of these new mandates. So for me, yes, it was a no vote.”


Bernie’s Budget Is A Wishlist For His Socialist Utopia


“This is Bernie’s wishlist. Bernie has talked for years about having this socialist utopia… There's 109 billion taxpayer dollars in this bill to go through and to do amnesty for illegal immigrants. There is money to set up a slush fund or a government-run VC fund on clean energy projects for the Department of Energy. The list goes on and on and on. There are more ways to waste money in this budget than most people would ever believe.”
