AmericaSpeaks TheVoiceOfJoyce Slick PR presents the oil & gas companies as the savior of education? They use their money to influence public opinion, knowing that Fossil Fuels are heating our Planet and destroying our lives.

AmericaSpeaks TheVoiceOfJoyce Are these members of the house living in Reality. Give small business tax credits to set up expensive 401k’s for employee & employer savings accounts for retirement. Where will the extra money to save be found? Are they increasing the Minimum Wage to $15/hr Nationally? Are they changing the NLRB making Unionization easier for Labor? Are they enforcing anti trust, encouraging entrepreneurs to become more competitive , giving entrepreneurs a greater piece of the Corporate pie? Give more money to the Lower and Middle Classy and they’ll happily save! I know, at Ford, Pfizer, Banker Trust , I set 6% of my salary aside for saving and it was matched by the Corporation. As a small but owner, I was told not to take on the Responsibility of a pension fund & paid my Labor high salaries, gave them healthcare and paid leave instead. One day I hoped to share my business with them, but the Recession of 2008 blocked those plans. Many employees of entrepreneurs have not recovered financially. For The Families Act is still required and supported by 70% of the People.

AmericaSpeaks TheVoiceOfJoyce Politicians have feasted off of Corporate Profits and largess. They’ve encouraged profits over people, rewarded Big Corporations with the Trump Tax Cuts, encouraging minimal taxation of the Wealthy and now they’re surprised by Corporate Greed. Industry is out of control. The Corporate Manyra is greed. Rein in all Corporations by taxation & individual taxation, enforce anti trust Laws in every institution and we’ll get a return to ethics in the marketplace. There is no honor among thieves . It’s not just the shippers at fault, Corporate Greed has run amok and we’re all paying for ,it with Inflated pricing.

AmericaSpeaks TheVoiceOfJoyce Shock!? American Healthcare has attracted private equity positions. Financialization of healthcare, is similar to equity positions in every major industry. It’s called “Late Stage Capitalism “, monopolies in every industry, control the Peoples way of life, while private equity and insurance companies become wealthier. There are 800 Billionaires in America. More can be done by Government to make Healyhcare affordable. Don’t look toward TRUMPSGOP for help. They would dismantle the ACA and continue privatization of Healthcare. Leave Healthcare to Government and disallow private profit centers in Healthcare. We don’t need house sitters, we need preventive Medicine and affordable GP’s.

AmericaSpeaks TheVoiceOfJoyce As Unions gain ground in America, their pro Democracy stance is growing to. They got out and helped citizens register in key battleground states where TrumpsGOP threatens to overturn 2020 electoral count. Unions are gaining adherents. Starbucks Reserve in Chelsea, NYC just Unionized. NYC is open to Unions. Our unemployment rate is around 7.9% , twice the National average. Why? There is a need for IT and qualified managers, yet rewards only go to the Top Earners. It’s time to put innovators back to work!

AmericaSpeaks TheVoiceOfJoyce As the World looks on, including Russian Citizens, YouTube has blocked State media, won’t anyone halt the Bombing and massacre of Ukrainians? All they want is their country and not to live under the cruel dictatorship of Vladmir Putin. Won’t the oligarchs call a halt to this disastrous invasion? You and the Mothers of Russian soldiers have the power to stop Putin and stop the Military from engaging in an unjust War!

TheVoiceOfJoyce There is a need for well trained Police. Start with retraining, add Salary increases, add liaisons with approved counselors to resolve domestic violence, abuse & drug issues. Finally, pass the Hobs Act & the Infrastructure bills to relieve economic stress . Tackle increased Homicides ! Background checks, Ban on assault weapons, etc. The last problem solver is a Federal Law on who owns a weapon, national Registry, automated, and which guns are allowed in the civilian population. All sides deserve pay with dignity and a return to mutual respect. We need an active Police Force who the Public and the Policy makers support!

TheVoiceOfJoyce What do the jobs #’s really mean? Who is getting work and who isn’t. It’s clear young people in their 20’s & 30’s are not entering the job market. Information Technology is lagging and millions are still out of work. We need the Infrastructure and the American Families Act now to stimulate our economy and improve productivity and our way of life!

TheVoiceOfJoyce No wonder today’s GOP doesn’t want History to reflect America’s racist past, in many Southern & TrumpsGOP controlled States, they are racist in their response to unemployment benefits. They look upon benefits as a deterrent to work. African Americans get much less than the white population and now they want to cut out benefits that should have extended through September. Raising wages helps everyone. Increased wages equals increased productivity & less inflation. Realistically, until the Jobs act and For the Families Act, child care and many unemployment benefits haven’t reached long term unemployed or workers in the Gig economy. There will be a lag in employment until people experience relief from economic pain and experience the benefits of child care allowances and resumption of schooling. What we’re-seeing is temporary. Be patient and work with your constituents.
