Hank Bardel Proposes His Legislative Agenda

FOR IMMEDIATE PRESS RELEASE; HANK BARDEL, GREEN PARTY CANDIDATE FOR THE US CONGRESS FROM THE 11TH CONGRESSIONAL DISTRICT OF NYS , PROPOSES HIS IMMEDIATE LEGISLATIVE AGENDA IF ELECTED.

The United States is involved in a war in Afghanistan that is over 10 years old, our longest war to date. Our troops are suffering many casualties because of it.  They’re returning home with missing arms and leg, serious psychological problems or in body bags.

We have a terrible healthcare system. Forty seven million people in the United States have no health insurance. We spend 17.4% of our economy on health care. The United Nation’s World Health Organization ranks the United States 37th (behind Costa Rica) in quality of health care   

Global warming is responsible for terrible weather resulting in an increase in hurricanes and tornadoes. Two thirds of our country is suffering from drought conditions which will lead to a rise in food prices.

Our education system is in very bad shape. We’re laying off teachers, while increasing the size of classes. The student loan debt in this country is set to hit a  trillion dollars.

We have an official unemployment rate of 8.3% at the present time. This doesn’t include those unemployed workers who have given up looking for a job. Unemployment could be as high as 16% – 17% of the workforce.

Eleven million families own houses that are worth less than their mortgages. Millions of families are in danger of foreclosure and 3.5 million people are homeless.

My immediate Legislative Agenda will be to sponsor and support the following laws:

1. I will immediately sponsor a law to bring home our troops from  Afghanistan and stop all drone attacks that are antagonizing people all over the world against the United States.
 
2. I will sponsor laws that will subsidize research on how we can make green energy cheaper and more productive. Green energy like wind, solar, geothermal, biomass power, hydro power, hydrogen power and ocean energy so that we can stop global warming with green house gases caused by the burning of coal, oil and gas.
 
3. I will immediately sponsor a Single Payer Health Care Law that will cover all Americans from cradle to grave. It will function like Medicare and will be basically Medicare for all.
 
4. I will sponsor a bill that will recreate Revenue Sharing. Revenue Sharing is where the Federal Government gives money to the State and local governments to help pay for State and local services like Education, to hire teachers, Police and Fire protection. Revenue Sharing will reduce real estate taxes. I will also sponsor a Federal Law that will pay off all student loans.
 
5. I will sponsor laws that will create a jobs program like the WPA which we had in the 1930’s. I will also create a stimulus package that will rebuild and repair our crumbling infrastructure. For instance the law will provide money for road repair, bridge repair, the building of schools,  government buildings and parks.
