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.
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.
Delegate Ward Armstrong today announced two pieces of legislation ensuring every Virginian’s right to petition their government freely and preserving every Virginian’s fundamental right to life, liberty and property.
“By electing us to represent them, Virginians put their trust in us that we will build a government that serves them efficiently and effectively without unduly getting in the way of their pursuit of the American dream,” said Armstrong. “Together these bills will give Virginians a more powerful voice when dealing with their government and help ensure that our state government continues to be the force for good that it has been for centuries.”
If you believe that all Virginians should have equal opportunity, fairness and justice, please become a citizen-sponsor of Senator Donald McEachin’s non-discrimination bill for the upcoming General Assembly Session in January.
Let’s show the Members of the General Assembly how many people believe discrimination is wrong and should be outlawed in Virginia.
I believe that all Virginians deserve equal opportunity, fairness and justice.
I support Senator McEachin’s bill that would prevent discrimination on the basis of sexual orientation to the list of forbidden discriminations against Virginia state workers.
I urge the General Assembly to pass this important bill and for the governor to sign it.
