Thank you, RoseAnn DeMoro for bringing your nurse's training to the task of diagnosing the disorder and then providing the most cost-effective cure.
Most professional politicians serve their money masters. And since Reagan began his screeds against government, those who would use a disarmed government (one suddenly FREED of regulatory agencies) to pursue their own naked profit agendas made enormous headway.
Owning media, much of academe's messaging, and lots of so-called political representatives, they implemented an agenda that liberated THEM from paying taxes, Wall St. transaction taxes, and basic benefits to workers.
Now, as citizens recognize what's working against their best interests and millions gather together, the established elites will use all sorts of disinformation campaigns to make Mr. Sanders' utterly fair, sensible, and wise policies seem nonsensical. And that's if they mention them--or him--at all.
When the time came to "reform" health care, no seat was offered (at the decision making tables) to those who advocated for a single payer (or extended Medicare) system. ONLY Big Insurance got to weigh in.
Similarly, as talk of a Wall St. tax (LONG overdue) makes it into discussion, the usual suspects will buck at this and call it a class war, or resentment against the rich, or do their best to misrepresent the utterly sane, humane, and just solutions to the ridiculous asymmetrical status of global finance.
The fact that over the course of the past decades so much wealth has been deliberately ENGINEERED to the top of the financial "food chain" while so many go without food, jobs, housing... would convince all but the dead-hearted that doubling down on the same protocols is criminal!
Meanwhile, Trump and Cruz are pushing the mantra that millionaires and billionaires salivate over: Tax reductions.
If either moral misfit obtains the Oval Office, they'll clean out the treasury by rewarding their rich friends and war profiteer power-brokers, and then convincingly tell the public there's nothing left for "entitlements" like Social Security.
These people have NO hearts and NO souls and in a sane society they would be institutionalized... not heralded as potential leaders!
