Interview with Howie Hawkins on the American Jobs Plan
Howie Hawkins, Green Party 2020 presidential candidate
Bill Resnick and Howie Hawkins, the Green Party candidate for President in the last election, discuss the Biden administration’s proposed American Jobs Plan. Announced with great fanfare at a cost of $2 trillion plus, the annual outlay would actually represent less than one-third of the U.S. military budget and is designed to fund the wish list of the U.S. corporate apparatus, such as “advanced “ nuclear power, “clean” coal, and the “smart” continent-spanning grid that will enable investor-owned utilities to preserve their domination. Still Biden’s plan is just a negotiating position, and there is a chance that significant resources could be devoted to genuine zero-greenhouse-gas model cities.
