Gainesville Sun on Jill Stein at May Day Rally

The Gainesville Sun covered the May Day Rally there, noting the presence of Green Party Presidential Candidate Jill Stein:

During the rally just off one of the city’s busiest intersections, Green Party presidential candidate Jill Stein expressed disillusionment with President Barack Obama — describing the 2009 stimulus package as a tax break for corporations and the wealthy that did little to create jobs for the working class.

Stein, who was in Gainesville on a campaign swing, called for the elimination of tax cuts for the wealthy, higher corporate gains taxes, a financial transactions tax on Wall Street, a sharp reduction in military spending, universal health care and a jobs and infrastructure construction program akin to President Franklin Delano Roosevelt’s New Deal.
