"Unfortunately the policy focus on the last year, culminating in the end-of-year passage of massive tax cuts for corporations, addressed nonexistent problems rather than the real problems we face."
FDR’s Second Bill of Rights addresses each any every one of these problems. He proposed the SBR’s in 1944 and to this very day our country screams out for it. 73 years of waiting. Next year when they gut the safety-net and explode the amount of the population in poverty we will in fact be on a par less than Russia. We will be a 3rd world country. It is incumbent upon every sane member of our country to fight for the SBR’s in order for our children’s children to have a homeland worthy of the Declaration of Independence, The Constitution and The Bill of Rights. If not you must change the name of this country and fly a different flag. Is this your country? Or those that own you, through debt and deceitful politics?
This article is fundamentally flawed and worthless. It does not does domestic inequality and austerity in relation to the permanent war economy.
Excellent article with lots of well researched facts.
