Socialist Presidential candidate Bernie Sanders is scheduled to come to Pennsylvania Sunday for a rally in Pittsburgh and Monday for a Fox News town hall in Bethlehem.
In response, Republican Party of Pennsylvania Chairman Val DiGiorgio, made the following statement:
“To quote our President – ‘America will never be a socialist country.’ Bernie Sanders’ plan for America is fundamentally at odds with our nation’s values and would transform us into a government-controlled authoritarian society where we lose our individual freedom and ability to pursue our own happiness.
“The policies Bernie Sanders supports, like the Green New Deal, eliminating private insurance, and raising taxes, are wrong for Pennsylvania, wrong for the American people, and wrong for our Constitutional republic.
“Bernie Sanders, his views, and his Presidential run will be rejected by Americans because, unlike Mr. Sanders, we value our freedom and the principles upon which the nation was founded.”
