Now that the silly trial of Trump in the Senate is over it is time to move on to more important things…..the trial was important but it was a forgone conclusion that it was a fart in the political wind.
Maybe the Congress can move onto actually doing something that will benefit the people…..The House will try but the Senate will be locked into the sleepy hollow syndrome….doing nothing but saying no and raising money for their re-elections.
The House presents bills…..but most are just chipping away at our problems around the edges of problems while the main body remains in place and problematic.
What have they got lose?
The Centrist approach has done little to solve problems.
Think I am wrong?
Then please tell me one problem that has been solved, I emphasize the word “solve”, in say a decade.
By big I mean solutions like Green New Deal…and for those that pay more attention to the Kardashians here is the Green New Deal…..
This would solve some of our problems (not all)…..why not go big?
We have so many social problems that we need big solutions…..problems like income, inequality, racial issues, infrastructure,and Medicare For All….all of which should have been solved many decades ago.
We all know that it will be a wash for once the Senate gets the bill it will die an unceremonious death.
We could say that the approach to the Covid virus with Biden is a big solution……we will see just how successful it will be…..but my point is that all our solutions should be so bold and so big.
But as usual I expect the Dems will cave to the stupidity of the GOP members of the Congress.
My advice is….Go Big Or Go Home!
M4A, minimum wage, Green New Deal (must include infrastructure), strengthen voter rights…and so much this country needs.
I know someone will no doubt ask….just how would we pay for this?
Easy answer and it comes from Sen. Warren….
Senator Elizabeth Warren and Representatives Pramila Jayapal and Brendan Boyle introduced the Ultra-Millionaire Tax Act, which would enact a 2% annual wealth tax on the net worth of households between $50 million and $1 billion, with a 3% annual tax on the wealth of households over $1 billion.
“In the midst of a pandemic that has left millions of Americans economically devastated, the net wealth of America’s billionaires has increased by over $1 trillion. Wealth inequality in the United States is out of control, with millionaires and billionaires becoming richer by the day as the American people struggle to get by with stagnant wages and a lack of adequate government support. Senator Warren’s wealth tax is exactly what this country needs right now, and it would do more than almost any other plan to tackle this crisis of wealth inequality forcefully, directly, and effectively.”
But the Dems are spineless…..
They won’t fight for a $15 minimum wage or $2000 monthly UBI. They won’t fight for Medicare for All in a pandemic. They won’t fight for a Green New Deal in a climate crisis. So what in the hell are the Dems and Biden actually fighting for?
