Rep. Dan Crenshaw slammed Sen. Bernie Sanders on social media over the weekend; saying the far-left lawmaker’s comments on the defense budget and education spending reveals his “pure intellectual laziness.”
The 2020 presidential hopeful called for tuition-free college across the United States on Twitter, writing “Congress gives hundreds of billions of dollars to fund our endless wars each year, yet making public college and universities tuition-free is somehow ‘too radical.’ I reject that.”
“One case is national defense, which all Americans benefit from, and the other is a direct transfer of money from hard working Americans to the investment decisions (ie college) of others. Saying they are the same thing is pure intellectual laziness,” fired-back Crenshaw.

Throughout the 2020 campaign, Sanders has called for a massive increase in federal funding including $32 trillion for his ‘Medicare for All’ plan and $16 trillion for his ‘Green New Deal’ to combat climate change.
“Climate change is a global emergency. The Amazon rainforest is burning, Greenland’s ice shelf is melting, and the Arctic is on fire. People across the country and the world are already experiencing the deadly consequences of our climate crisis, as extreme weather events like heat waves, wildfires, droughts, floods, and hurricanes upend entire communities, ecosystems, economies, and ways of life, as well as endanger millions of lives. Communities of color, working class people, and the global poor have borne and will bear this burden disproportionately,” writes Sanders.
The proposal aims to: Create a climate justice resiliency fund, decarbonize the shipping industry, replace all shipping trucks, end greed in our energy system, and expand the climate justice movement.
“The scope of the challenge ahead of us shares similarities with the crisis faced by President Franklin Delano Roosevelt in the 1940s. Battling a world war on two fronts—both in the East and the West—the United States came together, and within three short years restructured the entire economy in order to win the war and defeat fascism. As president, Bernie Sanders will boldly embrace the moral imperative of addressing the climate crisis and act immediately to mobilize millions of people across the country in support of the Green New Deal. From the Oval Office to the streets, Bernie will generate the political will necessary for a wholesale transformation of our society, with support for frontline and vulnerable communities and massive investments in sustainable energy, energy efficiency, and a transformation of our transportation system,” adds the statement.
CRENSHAW RESPONDS: Rep. Crenshaw SLAMS Ilhan Omar For Accusing Him of ‘Inciting’ Violence
Rep. Dan Crenshaw issued a fiery response to Ilhan Omar’s vicious comments Wednesday after she accused the Texas lawmaker of “inciting” violence against the controversial Congresswoman.
“1. I never called you un-American.
2. I did not incite any violence against you.
3. You described an act of terrorism on American soil that killed thousands of innocent lives as ‘some people did something.’ It’s still unbelievable, as is your response here,” tweeted Crenshaw.

Omar found herself in hot-water -yet again- this week after footage surfaced of her referring to the devastating 9/11 terror attacks as “some people” who “did something.”
CRENSHAW UNLEASHED: Dan Crenshaw BLASTS Elizabeth Warren’s ‘False Promises,’ Says Stop ‘Buying Votes’
Rep. Dan Crenshaw unloaded on firebrand Senator Elizabeth Warren over the weekend; saying the far-left legislator was making “false promises” and “buying votes” with her massive new entitlement programs.
“Here’s the thing: When a candidate tells you about all the things that aren’t possible, about how political calculations come first, they’re telling you something very important. They’re telling you that they will not fight for you. Not me. I’m here to fight for our country,” posted Warren on social media.
“Another thing: When candidates promise voters that they’ll solve all their problems, it’s a lie, & it causes resentment. It’s buying votes with false promises. We’re free to pursue our own happiness. This doesn’t include giving our hard-earned money to your big gov programs,” fired-back Crenshaw.

Warren stopped by The View last week where she offered a series of “free” giveaways to American voters; including free childcare, student debt forgiveness, universal Pre-K education, healthcare, and more.

“My proposal is a 2% ‘Wealth Tax’ on the top 1/10 of 1%, your $50,000,001 dollar you have to pitch-in two cents and two cents for everyone after that. With that, we can cancel student loan debt for 95% of the people who have it, but we can do so much more,” said Warren.
“Two cents, we can also provide universal, tuition-free college plus we can do universal childcare for every baby age 0 to 5, universal pre-k for every 3 and 4-year-old, and raise the wages of every childcare worker,” she added.
Top economists say the price-tag for Warren’s proposals will likely top $100 trillion.
Warren unveiled her latest plan to combat climate change last Monday; suggesting the use of the US military to confront global warming.
“In short, climate change is real, it is worsening by the day, and it is undermining our military readiness. And instead of meeting this threat head-on, Washington is ignoring it — and making it worse,” writes Warren in an op-ed published by Medium.
“We have the most capable military in the world. It’s also the single largest government consumer of energy, and it’s dependent on fossil fuels. The Pentagon spends about $4 billion a year to power its bases at fixed locations and consumes tens of billions of barrels of fuel per year,” she adds.
“Nibbling around the edges of the problem is no longer enough — the urgency of the moment demands more. That’s why today I am introducing my Defense Climate Resiliency and Readiness Act to harden the U.S. military against the threat posed by climate change, and to leverage its huge energy footprint as part of our climate solution,” concludes Warren.
