Dennis Kucinich on Technology
Democratic Representative (OH-10); Democratic Candidate for President
A: our work has to be done here on earth. But we also must keep in mind that there's tremendous spin-off technology. I have the National Aeronautics and Space Administration Glenn Research Center in my district. And they create a great number of jobs and spin-off technologies and propulsion and environmental technologies, in medicine and communications, in metallurgy. And this is where the jobs of the future will be.
A: We must create sustainable, livable communities. This means city planning becomes a matter of urgent concern. Urban sprawl has created duplication of infrastructure and services. Cities have such great potential for economic and social growth. As a former mayor, I intend to lead the resurgence of cities through rebuilding America's schools, bridges, sewer & water systems and through building new transportation and energy systems. I will lead the discussion on sustainability through working to preserve our farm lands and through protecting the interests of family farmers. I want to see great resources focused on rebuilding our cities and our neighborhoods and thereby creating a new sense of community in America.
KUCINICH: My economic strategy would be working to rebuild cities with a massive new WPA-type program. My economic policies will work toward universal health care, which will inspire further growth in the economy; universal pre-kindergarten, which will enable parents to be able to have their children ages 3, 4 and 5 for a five-day-a-week child-care program, saving families between $5,000 and $7,000 per child.
