Demand for a Green New Deal rocking the nation

 

In a presentation to the CPUSA National Board, John Bachtell, CP National Chairman warns that the warning signs of a planetary emergency abound: Record heat, massive wildfires, extreme weather events – you name it.

The latest report by the UN International Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) ominously warns the Earth’s inhabitants have 12 years to avert the worst climate catastrophes. The proposal for a Green New Deal demanding a dramatic shift to green jobs must be acted on with an urgency never seen before.

How to pay for it? Tax the rich! How to achieve it? Build a broad movement to defeat the Trump Agenda. It’s a matter of life and breath!!

Yes. Who cares? In a communist society where everything is publicly owned, the people can generate enough money to survive through creating jobs.

Do you think a tax on the rich will encourage rich people to move out of the country?

    Historicaly, taxing the rich has lead to there being less tax revenue. Also, what about gair opportunities? What if you had to pay the taxes too? I don’t think you would want that. Your only a communist until you’re rich.
