Last week, PA House Democrats introduced a sweeping package of bills called “Zero Waste PA;” bills masked as environmental reforms that would force government control of individual decision-making at even the most basic level and further separate Pennsylvanians from their hard-earned money.
The proposals mirror the Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Bernie Sanders-supported Green New Deal by inserting government into the lives of individuals under the auspices of benign environmental protection.
In response, Republican Party of Pennsylvania Communications Director Jason Gottesman, made the following statement:
“Zero Waste PA is a new turn in Pennsylvania Democrats embracing the left flank of their party and joining the ranks of Bernie Sanders and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez by seeking to insert government control over individual decisions as a means to address an indefinite threat.
“Under the Zero Waste PA plan, individuals and businesses will lose the ability to make the decisions that best suit their needs and will require them to pay more in taxes and fees.
“Proposals like Zero Waste PA are advertised as benign reforms but are truly subversions of the notion of limited government and an individual right to our Constitutional guarantees.”
