Post election analysis from Green Party presidential candidate Dr. Jill Stein11/09/12 Lisa Marzilli
Last Call Friday | Listen to this entire show:
On today’s Last Call we were joined once again by Green Party presidential candidate Dr. Jill Stein. We first talked to Stein shortly after she announced her intention to run for President back in January. You can listen to that interview here.
Stein and her running mate Cheri Honkala appeared on 85% of national ballots on Tuesday despite not being invited to participate in any of the televised debates and rarely getting a mention in the mainstream media. Stein is also the Green Party’s first candidate to independently qualify for federal matching funds.
Dr. Stein is a Harvard educated physician and healthcare advocate who supports, among other things a single payer system. Her economic platform called for a Green New Deal which would have put millions back to work transitioning the country to a green economy.
