WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, U.S. Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) released the following statement after voting against cloture on S.J. Res. 8, which calls for the United States government to institute a “Green New Deal”:

“The Green New Deal represents an industry-killing, all-out assault on our way of life in Kentucky: an escalation of the War on Coal, an attack on our automobile manufacturers and job-creators, and even more bureaucracy for our farmers to navigate. I cannot support this anti-Kentucky boondoggle that will make our nation’s $22 trillion debt look like ‘the good old days’ and roll back the ground we have gained on cutting taxes and removing unnecessary regulations. I look forward to continuing to work with President Trump to ensure we will never become a socialist country.”
