Rest assured the neo-liberal policy of ensuring the rich get richer while claiming that this wealth will be trickled downwards to the masses as Corporations use the money to retain workers or expand will be the recipe followed.

it should be ever more apparent that a “Peoples economy” (Read Socialism) would handle this crisis far better then a “Wall Street” economy . (Read Capitalism).

Capitalism can not solve this issue. Its only interest is in accruing Capital in the pockets of the few.

Diane Feinstein could support it. She sold off her stocks, so she’s safe.

excellent proposal

Hey there, Scout. Get out and take it to the street right now. That could land you a night in jail, for starters, then a $1200 fine and up to 30 days in the calaboose. Upon conviction, of course.
I think during times like this representative gov’t is a great thing. Driving to Washington, D.C. is something we Westerners are very jealous of the lucky *Easterners. Protesting is like falling out of truck for most of you. We have to travel 3500 miles for a redress of grievances. Life isn’t fair.

  • I support moving our nation’s Congressional deliberative bodies, buildings and supporting staffs, etc. to somewhere like Kansas City, Mo. or Omaha, Nebraska. Much closer for all the citizenry to visit and personally petition. Leave the rest of it on the East Coast.
