Van Jones Launches “Rebuild the Dream” Movement

At the Rebuild the Dream launch in New York City on June 23, Van Jones listed four lies we’re being told by politicians and the media and he explains why they aren’t true.
LIES:
1. We’re broke.
2. Asking the super rich to pay taxes hurts America’s economy.
3. Hating on America’s government, wrecking America’s infrastructure — is patriotic.
4. We’re helpless against Wall Street.

Jones also lays out a plan to return to America’s way of liberty and justice. Jones is a globally recognized, award-winning pioneer in human rights and the clean-energy economy.
