TheVoiceOfJoyce Why aren’t States using their allowance of Vaccines? It’s life saving. Go into communities , churches, schools and give the Vaccine & a donut ? Or a shot, like they did in Israel in Tel Aviv. I’m seeing mobile testing units in NYC, use mobile units or go to food pantries. There’s nothing more important than being Vaccinated. Especially now as virus infections are increasing!

TheVoiceOfJoyce Arizona home to eater inequality. The farmers and the 1% are allocated 120,000 acre ft of water , while the rest of the cities get 36,000 acre ft of water. Why should the people get less? What happens in drought years? Inequality of resources is being recorded. Use this knowledge to fight inequality and injustice! The majority must have a voice?

TheVoiceOfJoyce We are already affected by Republican Gerrymandering. The Democratic Party represents 41.5 million people more than TRUMPSGOP and have less seats in government. If these voting laws pass , the American Majority will be permanently underrepresented and Laws will continue to favor Income Inequality, unequal justice and limited opportunity. They have no plans for Infrastructure. Broadband. Trumps GOP is concerned with profit for the few, while the rest of contend with educational, healthcare & connectivity issues. Minorities in GOP states are not getting the vaccine, because access has been denied. We the People want change now! Jobs now! Justice now!

TheVoiceOfJoyce Now that many Billionaires want to give back to society, Governments should encourage a progressive wealth tax on estates of $50 million and up. Starting at 2%at $50 million. Total assets taxed according to Piketty, the French Evonomist ( he’d tax 5-7% of total assets) Warren would start at 2%, the IMF concurs !

TheVoiceOfJoyce Pollution claims almost 9 million lives annually. Coupled with acidic oceans , climate chaos, tainted water & more , Renewable energy has caught our attention.

TheVoiceOfJoyce Feeling sorry for the Fossil Fuel industries, don’t! They took $8.2 Billion in loans to maintain payrolls & laid of 58,000 people. The even took $30 million in PPP money meant for small businesses. They’re due to sunset in 15 yrs. it may be sooner, if Americans & the planet are to survive Carbon and Methane emissions. The new Infrastructure bill will add clean energy jobs. Think Electric and public transportation. We’re entering a new age!

TheVoiceOfJoyce Infrastructure Plan promises clean water. It’s not just lead & arsenic. In many town in North Carolina, PFAS, the forever chemicals remain, causing cancers, asthma and decreased fertility. We have a lot to lose without fundamental change and clean water resources are a priority.

TheVoiceOfJoyce Employers added 916,000 to their payrolls. If Vaccinations continue and Pandemic wanes, Business slated to add at 500,000 per month for the next year. That won’t bring us to lower unemployment, since 3.5-10 million Americans are not in the system. With new Infrastructure in the plans, it’s time to employ those discriminated for age, gender & disabilities. We can make this year a boom year for Everyone.

TheVoiceOfJoyce The Trump tax cut enabled CEO’s to increase their salaries, while workers wages stagnated or ended with the Pandemic. Most corporations added an extra 10-18% to their bottom line and no tax loopholes were closed. 28% is a reasonable amount of tax to pay , along with tax loopholes, that encourage off shoring work. American workers need a raise and a stake in management decisions. When taxation was at 91% for the Uber wealthy our Country was most productive, profitable& people earned more. We had a solid Middle Class. Let’s resurrect them now! Give us New jobs and new industries !
