Jill Stein profiled by NBC News website

Green Party Watch, March 26th, 2016:

steinThe NBC News website profiles Jill Stein, “the Green Party candidate for president,” who “has proposed a ‘Green New Deal’ that would create 20 million living wage jobs, wants to drive big money out of politics, and wants the U.S. to immediately stop sending weapons to the Middle East.”

NBC’s Corky Siemaszko writes that Stein is “also feeling the Bern — so much so that Stein has offered ‘to establish a collaboration’ with Bernie Sanders as he fights Hillary Clinton for the Democratic Party nomination.”

Stein told NBC, “Many of my supporters are also his supporters. I’m asked all the time if there could be a Bernie Sanders collaboration and my answer to that has always been yes. The Green Party has long sought to establish a collaboration with Bernie Sanders. … [However], we’re different. He is working inside the Democratic Party. I threw in the towel a long time ago.”

Asked if, “like Sanders, she identifies as a democratic socialist, Stein said she generally avoids ‘isms.’”

She said, “I am someone who supports things that work rather than ideology. That said, if the question is do I support people over profits, then my answer is yes. If the question is do I support economic democracy, the answer is of course.”
