WITH PUTIN, AND THAT IS ABSOLUTELY HISTORICALLY IRRESPONSIBLE >> JOE BIDEN HAS BEEN ROLLING OUT HIS ECONOMIC PLAN, WHICH HE, OF COURSE, RECOGNIZES IS THE OTHER SIDE OF A PUBLIC HEALTH

PLAN TO GET CONTROL OF THE CORONAVIRUS FIRST, THEN TRY TO BUILD AN ECONOMY WE GOT SHOCKING NUMBERS TODAY ABOUT WHAT THE JOB WILL BE IF JOE BIDEN IS THE NEXT PRESIDENT

WITH GDP DROPPING 329% THAT’S A NUMBER YOU NEVER EXPECTED TO HEAR IN YOUR LIFETIME WHAT WOULD YOU BE TELLING JOE BIDEN AND YOUR COLLEAGUES ABOUT

HOW YOU THINK WE HAVE TO DIG OUT OF THIS ECONOMIC HOLE? >> WELL, MY FEELING IS THIS, THAT WE’RE ABOUT TO HAVE OUR OWN FDR MOMENT I KNOW WHAT THE GREAT DEPRESSION

DID TO THE MARKEY FAMILY IN LAWRENCE IT HAD A TREMENDOUS IMPACT THE BANK WENT UNDER ALL THEIR SAVINGS WERE IN IT, HAD A PROFOUND IMPACT

THAT’S WHAT’S GOING ON IN OUR COUNTRY RIGHT NOW FAMILIES ARE AT THE KITCHEN TABLE TRYING TO FIGURE OUT HOW TO PAY BILLS I THINK JOE BIDEN IS GOING TO

MATCH THE MOMENT WHERE WE NEED OUR OWN FDR MOMENT IN JANUARY OF 2021 WE NEED TO THINK BIG ABOUT HEALTH CARE, MEDICARE FOR ALL, BIG ABOUT A GREEN NEW DEAL TO

CHANGE THE ENTIRE ENERGY INFRASTRUCTURE IN OUR COUNTRY, ABOUT PAID CHILD LEAVE, ABOUT PAID SICK LEAF, BIG ABOUT GUARANTEEING THAT WE HAVE HEALTH CARE FOR EVERYONE IN OUR SOCIETY

AND THAT WE PROVIDE PROTECTION FOR THE MOST VULNERABLE THAT WE DEAL WITH THIS ISSUE OF RACISM THAT’S BEEN UNCOVERED AS PART OF THE PANDEMIC AND GEORGE FLOYD’S DEATH

SO WE NEED A PRESIDENT WHO MATCHES THE MOMENT AND NOT A PRESIDENT LIKE DONALD TRUMP WHO ACTUALLY CONTINUES TO REVEL IN HIS ABILITY TO TAKE THIS MOMENT AND TO USE IT TO CONTINUE HIS

RACIST INJECTION FOR HIS OWN POLITICAL GAIN UNTIL THE ELECTION OF 2020 >> YOU’RE THE SENATE LEADER ON THE GREEN NEW DEAL LEGISLATION COSPONSORED WITH ALEXANDRIA

OCASIO-CORTEZ SHE HAS ENDURED YOUR RE-ELECTION HOW DO YOU BRING ABOUT SOMETHING THAT AMBITIOUS FORWARD AT A TIME WHEN THE ECONOMY HAS SUNK SO LOW

AND IT NEEDS THE BASIC BUILDING BLOCKS TO RECOVER? >> WELL, FDR THOUGHT BIG THAT’S HOW HE LOOKED AT THE WORKS PROGRESS ADMINISTRATION THAT’S HOW HE LOOKED AT THE

CIVILIAN CONSERVATION CORE THAT’S HOW HE GOT PEOPLE OUT INTO WORKPLACE WE CAN SAVE ALL OF CREATION BY ENGAGING IN MASSIVE JOB CREATION

AND WE CAN DO SO IN A WAY THAT PUTS FRONT LINE COMMUNITIES AT THE FRONT OF THE LINE FOR THESE JOB IF WE NEED A WAY TO PUT PEOPLE BACK TO WORK, WHAT BETTER WAY

THAN PUTTING MILLIONS OF PEOPLE TO WORK WITH WIND AND SOLAR, ALL ELECTRIC VEHICLES, BATTERY STORAGE TECHNOLOGIES, WITH ALL NEW TECHNOLOGIES FOR THE INDUSTRIAL AND COMMERCIAL

SECTOR IT IS A WAY OF SOLVING THE CLIMATE PROBLEM AND THE ECONOMIC PROBLEM SIMULTANEOUSLY THAT’S WHAT ALEXANDRIA AND I DID
