Washington, DC (February 7, 2019) – Alfredo Ortiz, president and CEO of the Job Creators Network (JCN), issued the following statement after Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) unveiled her much-anticipated “Green New Deal.”
This “Green New Deal” is really a “Green RAW Deal’ that will devastate our economy, and will be especially harmful to small businesses, JOB CREATORS and hard-working Americans. The ‘Green Raw Deal’ simply takes the failed ideas of socialism and wraps them in a different color. Socialism takes, capitalism creates. America does not want to be like Venezuela and never will be so long as our political leaders stand up for our ideals. We call on all reasonable Members of Congress to reject this madness. It’s time for Democrats, in particular, to restore sanity within their ranks.
Moments ago, JCN tweeted the following:
- Alfredo Ortiz, president and CEO of the Job Creators Network: This isn’t a green new deal; it’s a #GreenRawDeal for small businesses, #entrepreneurs, #job creators and hard-working Americans! @aoc #socialism takes, #capitalism creates!
- ALL reasonable Democrats should reject the madness going on in their party. #Socialism takes, #capitalism creates. #GreenRawDeal
- The #GreenRawDeal is the failed ideas of #socialism in disguise. Remember: Socialism takes, #capitalism creates!
