health care as a human right we need to get a generation of young people out of debt they are locked into debt with no relief in sight they don't have the jobs that can earn their way out so these are basics that we have an agenda for a green new deal that would provide a right to a job that would make wars for oil obsolete at the same time that we solve the climate crisis as the emergency that it is one hundred percent clean renewables by twenty thirty but democrats worry that greens going into the upcoming midterm elections will take away votes from democrats who they feel have a better chance of actually winning diluting the message and diluting the anti trump sentiment they blame greens in fact for losing the two thousand and sixteen election they say key states like michigan and wisconsin people who voted for the green party presidential candidate zille stai. probably would have voted for
11:34 am
