National Parks for sale in GOP Plan

GOP plan to sell National Parks

The GOP plan proposes to sell Government assets - which includes National Parks.

'Americans deserve to know what we will do when given the chance to govern.' - Senator Rick Scott (R-FL).

National Parks are a public resource for all Americans to enjoy  regardless of their wealth - not just a playground for the rich. Or for others to make money from by drilling for oil or real estate investment. This map shows the 858 National Parks that could soon be sold if Republicans succeed in their land grab scheme.

The GOP 11 Point Plan proposes to sell government assets such as National Parks. This would let the rich charge the public fees to visit them. Build hotels, ranch and drill for oil on these National Parks.

The 20 biggest landowners in the country own over a half-million acres each. Stop the Republican land grab for their wealthy donors.

The 858 Federal Parks on this map are a public resource for all Americans to enjoy  regardless of how rich or poor they are.

Republican pandering to the wealthy

"We will shrink the federal government, reduce the government work force by 25% in 5 years, sell government buildings and assets...We will stop socialism" - Senator Rick Scott (R-FL)

American families enjoying their National Parks isn't socialism. The parks are a public resource for all Americans to enjoy. Selling the National Parks to billionaires is Republican pandering to the rich.

"The Land Report publishes an annual ranking of the biggest private landowners in the US, as measured by total acreage. According to their most recent list, each of the 20 individuals and families that own the most land hold over a half-million acres each." - Business Insider
