“In many ways people consider the Greens the real Democratic Party that it used to be. … We have the unique liberty to act on our commitments. We don’t have to repay our corporate sponsors,” says Green Party candidate for president Jill Stein. Stein explains that the Green Party agenda includes creating jobs through a program called the Green New Deal. “It includes the usual spectrum of green jobs, but we also include social jobs that we need to meet our social needs,” Stein says, including teachers and firefighters.
