Democrat Andy Levin Supports Job Killing ‘Green New Deal’
Where do Slotkin and Stevens Stand?
LANSING, Mich., February 07, 2019– Today, Congressman Andy Levin (D-MI 09) stood with Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY 14) as she announced her proposal for a “Green New Deal.” The resolution would commit the United States to reducing Green House gas emissions to net zero by 2029, require the retrofitting or rebuilding of every building in the nation, radically alter American travel, and ban forms of energy which make up 83% of our electrical grid. Additionally, the “Green New Deal” promises, in the FAQs section, “economic security for those who are…unwilling to work.” These proposals would cripple the US economy and destroy Michigan’s manufacturing and agriculture industries.
With Levin’s unexpected support, many Michiganders are wondering: where do the rest of the Michigan Democrats stand on the “Green New Deal,” especially fellow freshmen Congresswomen Haley Stevens and Elissa Slotkin?
“For people who are supposedly fighting Global Climate Change, Levin and Ocasio-Cortez offered nothing today but hot air,” said Tony Zammit, Michigan Republican Party Spokesperson. “Make no mistake, you can’t support the ‘Green New Deal’ and Michigan jobs. Stevens and Slotkin need to make clear who they stand with. Do Slotkin and Stevens stand with Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and her radical agenda, or the people of Michigan?”
