Would really recommend that everyone look at your links –
My last recall of what Bernie Sanders suggested was real figure of unemployment was a
few years back and I think it was 15%. This was likely when government was saying 5+%.
And, thank you for including the info on INFLATION!! –
And the inflation rate of 6%+ in 2009 corresponds with the “W” spending which probably would
have at the least doubled the rate of the then COLA’s and presumably it just couldn’t be done
and likely why Obama stopped them for two full years.
But whether unemployment or inflation, obviously GOP has been working to once again limit
employment and add to the rate of inflation with the tremendous debt. But always ironic that they
will bash Dems for the debt and increasing it.
Thanks for the info – and I will save the links for future info.
And on this question … my error as I intended to say democratic SOCIALIST ideals?
is there anywhere to unite with others on some real democratic (Socialist) ideals?
Think what we know of the New Deal would have to be the base of thinking – as not only did it
happen and was carried through into even our present still with Social Security still existing –
but the records and memories of those who experienced it would likely suggest that “ideals” can
be turned into reality and create great societies. It does shock me really that they were able to
knock out unemployment compensation/insurance which I think was perpetual with some slight interruptions?
Again, thanks for the links which I will save and recommend –
