WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, Rep. Burgess Owens (UT-04) co-sponsored House Concurrent Resolution 9, a resolution denouncing the horrors and failures of socialism.

“Socialism is an evil ideology that inflicts death, poverty, and suffering on hundreds of millions worldwide,” said Rep. Owens. “America stands in solidarity with those fighting oppression in every corner of the world. I am proud to support this common sense House resolution to reaffirm our commitment to freedom, liberty, and justice for all.” 

The resolution outlines several historical examples of the greatest crimes and tragedies of socialism, and why such a system goes against the founding principles of our great nation. It specifically highlights examples in the USSR, China, Cambodia, North Korea, Cuba, and Venezuela. 

Passing this resolution would make a bold statement that the People’s House unequivocally denounces this cruel and unjust ideology. It would also ensure the United States commits to never begin or normalize the implementation of socialist policies that inevitably lead to economic ruin and political authoritarianism.

The full text of the legislation is available here.
