No cuts to social programing or eduction or health care or environmental protection including flood control are needed in order to balance the budget. The Green approach to budgeting raises the revenue needed to efficiently provide for human and environmental needs at reasonable cost
Greens are fully committed to social justice, the elimination of poverty, fiscal prudence (ie "living within our means environmentally and economically") to engaged foreign policy pushing for a robust investment in global climate action, achieving the Sustainable development goals, full reconciliation with indigenous peoples, and making decisions now for the benefit of our children. We are hard to peg as left or right. We just think Green values make sense in the 21st Century.
