The Green New Deal is an emergency solution that will put 25 million people back to work, end unemployment, jump-start the green economy for the 21st century, and substantively combat climate change. It would put communities in charge of defining what jobs they need. These jobs would be community-based, living-wage, full-time jobs, and would basically run the spectrum of jobs that make communities sustainable — clean manufacturing, local organic agriculture, public transportation, energy-efficient as well as active transportation, and of course clean renewable energy, conservation, weatherization, efficiency.
We would also include teachers, nurses, day care, violence prevention, drug rehabilitation, affordable housing construction, etc., so there would be a spectrum of jobs that make our communities environmentally, socially, and economically sustainable. The cost would be on the order of the first stimulus package, but it would create a whole lot more jobs, because the first stimulus package was largely tax breaks and subsidies for large corporations.
You might look at one party as a rapidly sinking ship and say we’re going to vote for the other guy because the ship’s not going down so fast. We don’t like him but he’s not sinking the ship so fast. But the real question is, if both of those ships are heading for the bottom of the ocean, do you want to be on either of them? No. There’s no question about where those ships are heading if you are looking at the economy.
Jill Stein, The Tragedy of Ignoring Green Party’s Jill Stein
Dr. Jill Stein as POTUS would ensure governmental, social, economic and global recovery. She is for PEOPLE, PEACE and PLANET. She would establish change we can truly believe in and so deserve after the trauma we have been through as a mis-governed nation and the global trauma that our government has perpetrated with no end in sight at the hands of both legacy parties.
It would be a tragedy to ignore Dr. Jill Stein of the Green Party as the best candidate for President of the United States.(via socialuprooting)
