2nd Congressional District - Green Party Candidate Harry Burger Statement:
My top 3 priorities are universal healthcare, the Ecosocialist Green New Deal, and reigning in our military spending. Through all of that, we need to be mindful of our history of systematic racism & classism, deliberately working to reverse the damage they have caused by ensuring those at the bottom benefit first and most.
There are over 50 countries that the UN calls "Highly Developed Nations", only one doesn't have universal healthcare, only one allows parasites to make themselves billionaires by denying claims for medical bills that put their customers families into bankruptcy, only one makes a family lose coverage when their breadwinner is unemployed, those are all the same country which by far spends more per capita on healthcare than any other nation, only to place 37th in average life expectancy. We're that country, and it's obscene.
I'm serious about making this a priority because I have never accepted any corporate campaign funding, directly or indirectly, and I never will. That's central to the Green Party platform from top to bottom, and if you look at any politician who opposes making the entire healthcare industry 100% nonprofit, somehow they're getting campaign funding from Big Insurance & Big Pharma. The state & national campaign funds for the Big Two parties are full of it, and controlled by Party leadership who got where they are now by dancing to the corporate tunes. A "No Corporate PAC money" pledge doesn't mean as much as it sounds, that's only one of many strings they tie to their puppets.
The Ecosocialist Green New Deal is essential to human survival, our goal is zero greenhouse gas emissions within 10 years, and we've been saying this for the last decade. Stop all new fossil fuel extraction immediately, all new power generation needs to be zero emissions, and get to work building out more to decomission polluting power plants while improving energy efficiency. Somebody always decries the cost, but the cost of doing nothing is more hurricanes getting up to category 3-5, rising sea levels, salt water intrusion into LI aquifers, tornadoes of fire on the west coast. Human extinction. That sounds even more expensive to me, and the poor/minorities are usually hit first and worst.
The Ecosocialist part is where as government spending builds these things, the workers who build & maintain them, and people who are negatively affected by them, own the final product collectively when it's done, not a small number of private investors. They vote on leadership, they reap any dividends.
We get the investment capital for the GND by reducing military spending by 10% every year for 5 years. We already spend more than the next 10 countries combined, after a 50% reduction we'll still be spending more than the next 3 combined. Since the US military is also one of the worst polluters in the world, that will help reduce emissions too.
