As dreadful as Wednesday’s shooting was, Congress has no reason to believe this is a one off! Congress continues to pursue Trump’s agenda on Healthcare “Repeal and Replace”, knowing that millions will be unable to purchase affordable healthcare. Even if the changes are cosmetic and they kick the “can down the road, why create the perception of harm? Trumps Agenda, that he is partially disavowing, has created hysteria among the populace.
The decent folks on the right and the left who are watching Congress and understand that policy that hurts the Middle Class, also know that policy is not handed down to a Biblical figure, from on “high”. Rather, Bad policy is made by elected officials, who know the people they are hurting! That’s sad! How can Congressmen and women, in good conscience , harm the constituents who elected them to safeguard and protect their rights? “We the People”, now recognize that Laws made by Congress and the President are not in our “best interests”. Special interest groups demands and their Lobbyists , come before the needs of “we the People”.
Until Congress and the President realize that ” we the People” understand our sorry plight and understand that we are not content to have a two Class system, violence may continue.
I spend my waking hours thinking how to prevent a Revolution and how to counter bad Federal policy in a rational manner. I’ve come up with Litigation and a National Strike.
I know that trickle down economics doesn’t work. So do most people. Our problem, we should have been shouting our stories of despair, loud and clear, every time more then 100 people lost their jobs. Unfortunately, as humans we were too trusting and hopeful, believing our State of Inequality would be short lived. We never realized, like Piketty did, that once the wealthy Class became obscenely wealthy, preservation of their wealth would become an end in itself. The wealthy enjoy their perks and have no intention of sharing. Like a” large sucking sound” our money, money from “we the People” has gone to fund the lifestyles of the rich and famous. While “we the people” struggle to make ends meet.
We understand. We see what’s happened and we’re not content to let this State of Inequality continue. I don’t agree with the Fed raising rates. I see it as a massive giveaway to Wall Street once again. I’d rather use some of those bonds to bail out the Middle and poorer classes. According to my calculations, $1.7 Trillion in bonds could be converted into a cash check of $12,000 to help 154,000,000 survive.
A social safety net for the Middle and poorer classes would be spent and not saved. It would be cash used to fuel many businesses. It’s worth a try! ” We the People” have suffered for 9 long years with low wages and marginal employment. America’s Market Society has not worked for us, though it has rewarded CEO’s irrespective of their performance and their shareholders.
If QE for the Middle and poorer classes is not feasible, I’d like to know why not? I require an explanation for my 10,000+ followers in my on line Community.
What do you think dear followers? How do you feel about recent events? Do you think the folks in Congress or the President see us yet?
See you at 11 am Friday and let’s chat.
“The heart and pulse of the Middle Class”
