    Right On, Senator Markey!

    This sounds like a terrific plan. Retraining people who have relied on failing industries is hopeful. We need this, and we know this president has never had a positive new idea in his limited brain in his life.

    Yay! Go Green!!!

  6. You will need to disguise a good plan like this as a conspiracy theory in order to get the president’s attention.

    Universal healthcare, not Medicare for all until we have better people in charge of government

    Climate change legislation is Urgent

    • Yeah no kidding. There was a big wave of climate change chasing me into work. I barely got in the building.

      bryanatwku oh you still have a job? How nice for you!

    • Elena, #1 Bernie Bro, yes it is. It took a lot of work to get where I am at. I went to school during the day and worked at an aluminum forging plant at night for five years in order to graduate with honors with a degree in electrical engineering and without student debt. I went into the automotive industry after that and started flipping houses when I wasn’t working. I am on track to retire before I’m 40 and I have a beautiful Philippine wife 17 years younger than I and we have a baby daughter together.

  13. Like Yang said move ahead with trump you can only go backwards.Canada.

  14. The senator is right…im not sure Biden is gonna do it tho

    This was Bernie’s idea but what didn’t get him elected was taxing the rich!! At least Americans are giving in to these ideas now although taxing the rich would have really helped the country! It would have plugged billions immediately into the economy! Maybe one day Americans will see the income inequality and finally change their minds.

    • All I can see is that Americans don’t understand what is in their own best interests. Do they think the GOP cares abt working people? Ask McConnell why he has sat on the Bill which the House passed in May, to continue the $600 payments, and extend the eviction moratorium which has now expired. He said he was going to slow walk it, and he has. His priority was to continue appointing conservative judges, and insist on an immunity shield for businesses, so that they could not be sued if their workers contracted Covid in the workplace. Who in their right mind would continue to vote for a party which wants to cut Social Security, and repeal the ACA? Bernie Sanders’ policies wd have benefited working people, but they just didn’t get it. Hard to feel sympathy for people who reject policies that wd make their life better.

  16. t’rump: Make America Great Again!
    Economy: Worst GDP drop in history.
    Health: 153,000 dead Americans in under 5 months.
    t’rump supporters: Are we Great yet?

  17. In ten more years of global cooling, YOU will deny you ever believed in warming.
