Grassroots Booster Club- RT America- Jill Stein: 'Barack Obama Has Been Worst Than George W. Bush'

First of all, to correct the record: 25% of the 2009 American Recovery Act were tax cuts, all targeted to the middle class. Tax cuts that both Mitt Romney and Jill Stein want to repeal, resulting in tax hikes for the, well middle class. People who simply can't afford to pay extra in taxes right now. So there's at least one area that separates President Obama from both Governor Romney and Dr. Stein, who claimed that the Recovery Act was mostly tax cuts and she said a couple of days ago, tax cuts for the rich.

Completely bogus ( to be overly generous ) claims and it's beyond me how someone who is running for President of the United States and won their party's nomination for President, does not know that. But people who are aren't running for President do know that, because they've actually seen the bill. Under Dr. Stein those tax cuts disappear as well as all the Bush tax cuts, including the middle class tax cuts, that took more working Americans off of the tax rolls and lowered the bottom tax rate. People who are low-income workers and lower middle class workers pay, to 10%. Vote for the Green Party, you are voting for middle class tax hikes.

As far as the Green Deal, based off of the New Deal from the 1930s, ( obviously duh! ) putting the Federal Government essentially in charge of job creation and economic growth and would put the Federal Government in charge of prioritizing what projects and what works need to be done in America. Putting the Federal Government in charge of hiring all of these unemployed workers to do this work. And one way that Dr. Stein says she would pay for this, a roughly 800B$ Stimulus Package, all public sector centered, is by pulling all of our troops out of the Afghan and Iraq Wars. By ending those wars.

I'm for ending those wars now myself, but the problem with financing an economic plan with money from Afghanistan and Iraq, is that both of those wars were put on the National Debt Card. Not a dime of either war has ever been paid for. So what a hypothetical ( or perhaps science fiction ) Stein Administration would do, is stop the borrowing of hundreds of billions of dollars to fund one thing and take all of that money to be borrowed to pay for something else.

I hate to put it this way, because I'm not a fan of the two-party system, even as a Liberal Democrat. Whose party has benefited greatly from it, but a vote for Jill Stein for President, is literally a vote for Mitt Romney. The more votes that President Obama doesn't get, are votes that don't go against Mitt Romney. And the way to fix this in the future, is to blow up the two-party system and replace it with a system that would accompany, Democratic Socialists, like the Greens, Libertarians and Independents.
