Jill Stein on the Deficit and Debt

Stein believes eliminating the need for foreign oil and establishing a year 2000 military budget will go a long way to stopping the deficit

“Yes I mean I think it only stands to reason that if we want to end the growing debt and deficit we need to stop engaging in the drivers of that debt and deficit. So we’re talking about ending the wars for oil, which we can do because we are promoting a Green New Deal to meet our energy needs here at home, which ends the need and the rational for undertaking these wars for oil and being the police force of the world. Back in the year 2000 we were spending about half as much on our military industrial security complex as we are now. That cost is about a trillion dollars a year, yet we’re seeing right now with all the blowback in the Middle East and with the U.S soldiers being shot up by the Afghani soldiers to whom we’re supposedly turning over this war effort by the continuing incredible civil chaos and violence in Iraq as well as Afghanistan. We see exactly how much good these wars for oil are doing us so we’re calling for a year 2000 military budget which will being as much as half a trillion dollars a year back to our budget here at home. That will go a long way to stop the deficit.”
