House Passes Womack Cosponsored Measure Denouncing Socialism
Washington, February 2, 2023
Washington, DC – February 2, 2023….Congressman Steve Womack (AR-3) today voted to support H. Con. Res. 9. He is a cosponsor of the measure, which denounces socialism in all its forms and opposes the implementation of socialist policies in the United States.
Congressman Womack said, “Socialism is fueled by destroying freedom. It’s an affront to the values America was built on. Yet, some embrace the ideology as a pathway forward. I have seen the dangerous impact of its policies firsthand at the Venezuelan border. It’s a consistent plight all too real for those suffering under authoritarian control. I will always stand to protect liberty and opportunity.”
Many American politicians have ignored the brutal history of socialism and have openly embraced the label of "socialist" or pushed socialist policies, despite the long history of human rights violations at the hands of socialist or communist regimes in pursuit of their ideology. The resolution condemns socialism, grieves the human loss at the hands of socialistic regimes, and opposes the implementation of socialist policies in the United States.
Congressman Steve Womack (AR-3) has represented Arkansas’s Third Congressional District since 2011. He is a member of the House Appropriations Committee.
