Hell yeah Trump is a TRAITOR.
Hell yeah Trump is a TRAITOR.
So much for “state rights”
In a seismic shift, Attorney General Jeff Sessions will announce Thursday that he is rescinding a trio of memos from the Obama administration that adopted a policy of non-interference with marijuana-friendly state laws, according to a source with knowledge of the decision.
In the United States of America, there is no LOGICAL REASON why Healthcare or Education should be considered “For-Profit Enterprises”.
$100 Billion would make all Further Education Tuition Free up to a PhD (An Educated Labor Force is the most important thing a Nation can have in the 21st Century)
As for Healthcare, we have 140 Years of Emperical Evidence since the Bismark Reforms of Germany, that Universal, Compulsery, Public Health Insurance that everyone pays into, with no profit seeking, running at an overhead of no more than 5% of its revenue blows Private for Profit Health Insurance out of the Water, I would go even further stating that the British National Health Service which essentially operates like the Military with Medical Facilities being State Owned and Medical Professionals being Civil Servents is the Best of All Systems.
I would go further and say that much of the “Insurance Industry” should be Operated by the State and publically owned, for instance Car Insurance could be made public and Included in the Private when you qualify to Drive on Public Roads. Supplementary Private Insurance can exist strictly on a non-Profit Basis, but even this is not necercery.
The same with Public Utilities, Energy Production and Distribution, Water, Transport, Ports, Airports, the Private Sector need not be involved in these Sectors that should be Public and Part of “The Commons”.
The Finance, Insurance and Real Estate Sector is essentially parasitic, produces nothing of Value and must be kept to an absolute Minimum to serve the Public Good. Going further, the United States of America should return to the Corporate Situation of the pre-1880s, when Corporations were created by Legislation, were creatures of Law with Specific Purposes and could only be created as “Artifical Persons” if they could prove they would serve the Public Good.
“Artificial Persons” are servents of “Natural Persons” and Society at Large and have no Place in Influencing Politics that is the Realm of “Natural Persons” and “The Commons”.
Abolish “Corporate Personhood” forever, via an Amendment to the US Constitution that specifically Sets in Stone that the Constitution applies only to “Natural Persons”, and that “Artificial Persons” are not entitled to any Rights and only Privileges set down by enacted Legislation.
We have pensions collapsing, communities that have been wiped out, and the Republican plan to fix all of this is to go to the Chinese government, borrow $2.3 trillion, and bring it back to the US to give to the wealthiest people in the country?
SHARE if you agree: That won’t fix a thing for hardworking families who need a boost. Republicans need to ditch this disastrous plan.
Cities and states always seem to have plenty of money when it comes time to bribe the wealthy and their corporations. Somehow they can never manage to find money to improve their citizens lives though….
For the first time in United States History since Labor Secretary Francis Perkins urged Franklin Delano Roosevelt to include Universal healthcare in the Social Security Act of 1935 (The only plank that Francis Perkins demanded of FDR if she was to become Labor Secretary that did not get through) Full Medicare For All is starting to become a real possibility.
You are going to hear arguments from ALL Republicans and many Democrats that “Capitalist Market based Solutions are best”
This is erronious to anyone who understands the history of Capitalism and has read Economist Micheal Hudson, the original Classical Economists like Adam Smith said that you needed to get rid of the Parasetic element in the economy for it to work efficiently.
All “For-Profit” Insurance of any type is parasetic because it drains income from Workers and Firms into the pockets of Idlers that do nothing.
A Publically funded system through Taxation is much more efficient as there is no profit motive.
The United States of America is slowly turning into Nazi Germany under our new FACIST DICTATOR DONALD TRUMP.
