RPI Statement on the First 2020 Democratic Debate

DES MOINES — Republican Party of Iowa Chairman Jeff Kaufmann released the following statement in response to the first 2020 Democratic debate:

“Tonight we heard a lot of the same socialist rhetoric that 2020 Democrats have been spewing across Iowa for months now. They continue to embrace government-run health care and the Green New Deal, which would cost taxpayers a whopping $124 trillion. While this might be appealing to a New York liberal like Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, these policies would cripple Iowa’s small businesses and our agriculture industry. It is ludicrous that the far-left’s idea of fantasyland is Cuba and Venezuela, because that’s what America would look like if these 2020 Democrats have their way.”
