Issues

Campaign themes

2012

DeRosa stated the following about his campaign issues in a biographical submission to Ballotpedia:[1]

"I support the Green Party’s economic recovery plan called the Green New Deal. This plan is supported by our Presidential candidate Jill Stein and our Vice-Presidential candidate Cheri Honkala (write-in candidates in CT). This plan calls for the following:

  • A Full Employment Green Jobs Program that will create 25 million jobs by implementing a nationally funded, but locally controlled direct employment initiative.
  • Over 25% of the mortgages in CT are under water and over 10% are in foreclosure. As your congressman, I will submit a bill to allow foreclosure judges the power to allow people to stay in their homes and require banks to accept a Rent To Buy agreement for five years.
  • Democratize monetary policy by placing the Federal Reserve Banks under a democratically controlled Monetary Authority within the Treasury Department.
  • Restore the Glass-Steagall separation of depository commercial banks from speculative investment banks.
  • The Green New Deal will create massive conservation, solar, wind, geothermal, and small hydro energy systems and a clean transportation system. We oppose nuclear power because it is inherently unsafe and dangerous."
