By Green presidential candidate Jill Stein, TheHill.com, July 12th, 2016:
Millions of hearts were breaking Tuesday, as Bernie Sanders delivered his long-expected endorsement of Hillary Clinton, with notably less enthusiasm than the passion of his usual stump speech that followed.
Though Bernie urged his supporters to forget the past and focus on the future, we forget the past at our peril. We cannot forget the triumph of Bernie’s campaign, and the hunger of the public for an economy that works for working people, not just the billionaires.
My campaign offers real hope for such an economy. Our Green New Deal would create 20 million living wage jobs while solving the climate crisis. Our call to abolish student debt provides relief to tens millions of young people trapped by debt for education that failed to produce the jobs they promised. We can finally make health care a human right.
