The fix for our Economy is really simple.

Even simpler that the self serving, bought and paid for corrupt loons in WDC.

1 - Stop the wars. All of them. Over 16 trillion dollars wasted so far.

2 - Let bush's tax cuts on his rich friends expire. Start wars, cut taxes? That's stupid.

3 - Raise taxes on those most able to pay them. The highest tax rate was 91% during Eisenhower's Administration. The economy boomed. Clinton raised taxes, the economy took off again. Bush cut taxes, we crashed - twice.

4 - Close the tax loop holes on multi-national corporation with billions in profits so they start paying their share of taxes. No need to make poor people destitute by cutting Social Security and Medicare.

5 - Get our Living Wage Jobs back into this country. No wonder we can't recover from the recession, way too many people for the available jobs and most of those jobs do not pay a Living Wage.

6 - Re-regulate Wall Street and the banks. Why do we let them gamble with our money. Heads they win, tails we lose.

7 - Prosecute OUR war criminals. The survivors in Iraq could get behind that.

8 - Single Payer, Universal Health Care. We are the last hold out and pay twice as much as any other country for our health care. Put the "Your Money or Your Life" health insurance companies out of business.

Where are "We the people..." in any so-called solution from our so-called leaders.

We need to spread the pain to those that caused the problem in the first place.

The real problem is not to much spending that helps the people, the problem is too much greed and corruption and bought off politicians that make the rich even richer.


I wrote this this morning before I listened to Bernie's speech and posted it here:

7. For me too.
Even if Bernie doesn't run, he will still be my write-in vote in 2012. There is no possible way I can bring myself to cast a vote for a right wing conservative simply because he chooses to call himself a Democrat.

5. He's one of the best we've got...
...and he's a better Democrat than 95% of the other Democrats in Washington, D.C.
