Green Party on Budget & Economy

Party Platform


Answers to wealth inequality are out there; ask the people

In spite of the so-called "recovery", millions of Americans still own homes with negative equity, millions were impacted by cruel Federal housing sequester cuts, and millions more remain literally homeless.

While this year's State of the Union mentioned inequality of wealth, it failed to mention poverty, homelessness, or the ongoing home foreclosure crisis (except in passing), and in any case failed to offer substantive solutions. It is not as if the answers are not out there.

In Pennsylvania, the Poor People's Economic Human Rights Campaign is moving people into vacant housing. In Richmond, California, Green Party Mayor Gayle McLaughlin is working on a program to take back foreclosed homes from banks and return them to original owners. The people are moving to find ways to meet their needs. The silence of the twin corporate parties makes it only a matter of time before the people move forcefully to build a political party of their own.
