Share the article: Self-Described “Absolutely Not” Socialist Betsy Londrigan Must Answer For Her Past Statements And Her Party’s March Towards Socialism

Democrats have moved even further to the left since Londrigan last ran for Congress; where does she stand on impeaching President Trump, the Green New Deal, Medicare for All, and her party’s radical abortion agenda?

“In a lame attempt to distance herself from her past statements and the Democratic Party’s march towards Socialism, Betsy Londrigan says she’s “absolutely not” a Socialist, but voters in the 13th District won’t be fooled. Now that Londrigan is officially a Democratic candidate for Congress again, she must let voters know whether or not she will take part in the Democratic Party’s far-left, Socialist policy agenda – impeaching President Trump, the Green New Deal, Medicare for All, and a radical expansion of abortion.” – Illinois Republican Party Spokesman Aaron DeGroot

Today, Betsy Londrigan announced her intent to run for Congress again in the 13th Congressional District.

In her announcement interview with the State Journal-Register, Londrigan said she is “absolutely not” a Socialist, but Londrigan has previously voiced her support for many of the policies pushed by the rapidly growing Socialist wing of the Democratic Party.

So where does Betsy Londrigan stand on these issues now?

Impeaching President Trump
In 2018, Betsy Londrigan said, “All systems point to a Trump impeachment and I’d be on board with that.” Earlier this year, one House Democrat introduced the articles of impeachment against President Trump.

Does Londrigan still believe President Trump should be impeached?

The Green New Deal

New York City Socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is the new standard bearer of the radical left in the Democratic Party. Her key issue has been the so-called Green New Deal, which would be a huge government takeover of major sectors of the American economy, requiring trillions of dollars in new taxes.

The Green New Deal would outlaw fossil fuels, destroy millions of jobs, create huge, new entitlement programs, and bankrupt our country. One group said the Green New Deal will cost between $51 trillion and $93 trillion over 10 years.

Londrigan was previously endorsed by the Sierra Club, co-authors and supporters of the Green New Deal. Does Londrigan agree with the Sierra Club on the Green New Deal? Would she support Ocasio-Cortez’s resolution?

Medicare for All
Liberal Democrats led by self-described Socialist Bernie Sanders are pushing a complete government takeover of healthcare, known as “Medicare for All.” In reality, their plan would be Medicare for none.

Over 100 Democratic members of Congress support a version of the plan which would “largely outlaw private health insurance.” The Mercatus Center at George Mason University says “Medicare for All” would cost taxpayers over $32.6 trillion over 10 years.

In 2018, Betsy Londrigan called Medicaid-for-All a “great plan.” Given the massive cost to taxpayers and abolishing of private health insurance, does Londrigan support Medicare for All? If so, how would she pay for it?

Radical Abortion Agenda
Democrats in Illinois, New York, Virginia and elsewhere are pushing a radical expansion of abortion. Here in Illinois, Democrats want to legalize late-term abortions and force private health insurance plans to cover abortion services. In Virginia, their Democratic governor voiced his support for post-birth infanticide.

Republicans in Congress have been fighting back against the Democrat’s radical abortion agenda. In the Senate, Republicans have pushed legislation to outlaw infanticide. And in the House, Republicans are whipping votes to force a floor vote on similar legislation.

Where does Betsy Londrigan stand on her party’s radical abortion agenda? Does she support late-term abortion and infanticide, or does she support Republican efforts to protect life?
