In the spirit of Thomas Attwood, Congressman Dennis Kucinich (D,Ohio, 10th District) Proposes Landmark Jobs Plan
Back to the present – in the United States the popularly called ‘NEED Act’:
To create a full employment economy as a matter of national economic defense;
to provide for public investment in capital infrastructure;
to provide for reducing the cost of public investment;
to retire public debt;
to stabilize the Social Security retirement system;
to restore the authority of Congress to create and regulate money, modernize and provide stability for the monetary system of the United States;
and for other public purposes.
Be it enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives of the United States of America in Congress assembled.
