More than 110 green, community, labor and faith groups recently released a letter urging President Biden and Congressional Democrat leaders to fund a 10-year, $42 trillion ecosocialist Green New Deal far larger than the $3.5 trillion stimulus package target pushed by Senate Majorty Leader Chuck Schumer.
Senator Schumer says he intends to bring his $3.5 trillion economic stimulus package up for an initial vote before the August recess. It will need only 50 votes in the Senate. We need to urge the Democrats to support a much more robust climate investment – this may be our last best chance for game-changing funding, with the GOP likely regaining control of at least one House in 2022.
Phone, message and / or email:
Please vote to immediately fund an ecosocialist Green New Deal with an annual $4.1 trillion investment for ten years. We need to declare a climate emergency to mobilize the nation’s resources to get to zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2030. We need an economic bill of rights that provides living wage jobs for all, improved and expanded Medicare for all, and invests in public education and housing.
We need Congress (@chuckschumer, @SpeakerPelosi) to fund ecosocialist #GreenNewDeal with annual $4.1 trillion for ten years. Pres @JoeBiden must declare a #climateemergency, zero carbon emissions by 2030, stop fossil fuels. Economic bill of rights. http://gelfny.org/news-blog/ecosocialist-green-new-deal-letter/
