Jeffery Sachs on RESULTS global call

RESULTS activists were honored to have Dr Jeffery Sachs address us on a national conference call earlier this month. He gave us some great material to work with and things to chew on. Here's a taste....

"So we have a president who wants to lead, a secretary of state who wants to lead, a budget deficit of enormous proportions where, by the way, they could have said, "OK, instead of $1.4 trillion, we'll have $1.4 trillion plus $10 billion to make sure that the poor don't die from all of this." But they haven't done that yet. And we need to make sure that we do not cause the poor to bear the brunt of this right now and to suffer as all of a sudden, after the trillions, we are told there is not another penny to spend. "
- Dr. Jeffrey Sachs on the RESULTS Global National Conference Call, February 14, 2009.

Listen to and read all of his encouraging words
