House Minority Leader Hakeem Jeffries (D-NY) spoke out against a House resolution that would condemn the “horrors of socialism,” arguing that it is a “fraudulent” resolution that would “undermine” House Democrats’ agenda.

Cuban-American Rep. Maria Elvira Salazar (R-FL) introduced the anti-Socialism resolution, a symbolic move that declares the country “founded on the belief in the sanctity of the individual, to which the collectivistic system of socialism in all of its forms is fundamentally and necessarily opposed.”

The text of the resolution notes that “many of the greatest crimes in history” were committed by socialist ideologues like Vladimir Lenin, Joseph Stalin, and Hugo Chavez.

Jeffries denounced the resolution, declaring, “They’re bringing to the floor of the House of Representatives today a resolution on socialism, to condemn some dictators that we all condemn. But understand the goal of this phony, fake, and fraudulent resolution is just to somehow provide cover for extreme MAGA Republicans to try to undermine an agenda that is designed to lift up the health, safety, and well-being of the American people.”

House Speaker Kevin McCarthy spoke to reporters after the vote, and said, “100 Democrats just refused to denounce socialism. That’s scary—and it explains a lot about why Congress has been spending so much these last four years.”

Rep. Maria Salazar, the daughter of Cuban exiles, introduced the resolution and posted a video statement after it had passed.

Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-Col.) tweeted, “Today, the House will vote to CONDEMN socialism. Sure will be interesting to see how many Democrats are willing to stick by this deadly ideology on the record.”

Later, she added, “And in the end, nearly half of the Democrats in the House couldn’t bring themselves to condemn socialism. If that doesn’t tell you everything you need to know, what will?”

Digital strategist Greg Price posted a list of the 100 House Democrats who refused to denounce socialism.
