Letter: For a Green New Deal


To the Editor:

We need a New Deal. Yes, it must be green, based on 21st-century sciences. The failures of past policies should guide us, too. We need to support affordable healthcare for all and a living wage for everyone. The Greening of America must be through manufacturing from America workers. Made in the USA. Infrastructure investments needed, must be the best possible.

We are failing in all phases of the economy, education, energy, healthcare, environment, transportation, manufacturing, security, technology, etc. What happened? We need to develop smart jobs by creating a educated 21st-century middle class. We need a fair tax policy and investments by our government and businesses working together. We once were number 1 in everything. We once went to the moon. Let's do it again.

Russell Wilber,
