WASHINGTON (KFSM) — U.S. Senator John Boozman (R-AR) and Senator Tom Cotton (R-Arkansas) are speaking out about the Democrats Green New Deal that fizzled out on Tuesday (Mar. 26) after failing to advance in the Senate.
“We have an obligation to cut emissions and move our energy consumption toward renewable sources. The U.S. can be proud of the efforts we have made to move in this direction, but more work remains to fully achieve these goals. The Green New Deal is not going to get us there,” Boozman said.
Senator Boozman went on to call the proposal a “far-left wish list masquerading as a clean energy plan.”
