Robert Reich does an excellent job in this short video of explains how Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s proposed “Green New Deal” is a great idea to address two big problems in the US at one time.
While we will have only one house of congress for the next two years, that should be enough to emphasize what is now a huge gulf between the parties on policies. The Green New Deal is but one of the very progressive, problem solving ideas that Democrats have.
What used to be the Republican Party that has now devolved into the cult of Trump Party seems to have but one idea – give America’s treasury to the rich and they will disburse such money to you and me through wages and charities. Charities like the Trump Foundation.
Consider the Green New Deal over the holidays. This is the kind of policy that America needs today. And remember there is no ‘planet B’ – this is the only place we have to live.
Have a great holiday.
