U.S. Rep. Liz Cheney didn’t mince words this week after Joe Biden announced that U.S. Sen. Kamala Harris would be his vice presidential pick.
“Kamala Harris is a radical liberal who would raise taxes, take away guns & health insurance, and explode the size and power of the federal government,” Cheney wrote on Twitter. “She wants to recreate America in the image of what’s happening on the streets of Portland & Seattle. We won’t give her the chance.”
Cheney followed up that tweet with a retweet of a Fox News report, adding more comments about Harris. She said the California senator had a more liberal voting record than U.S. Sens. Bernie Sanders or Elizabeth Warren.
The representative repeated her assertions that Harris wants to raise taxes, ban gun sales and eliminate private health insurance. She added Harris also wants to use taxpayer money for abortions and illegal immigrant health care.
“Would be devastating for America,” she wrote.
Cheney also retweeted a post about Harris by GOP national spokeswoman Elizabeth Harrington, which featured similar claims. It also included comments about Harris wanting to have a “conversation” about lowering the voting age from 18 and letting terrorists vote from prison.
