The gap between the wealthy and the rest of us continues to grow wider. The US is engaged in wars and other military actions around the world. The climate crisis continues to worsen. The too-big-to-fail banks grow larger.
With these and many more problems, we can find solutions, but it takes acting together for the common good. This is something we can do but we must confront corporate power to make it happen. Remember that the issue is not the individual issues but the whole system. Solutions come from that realization.
Healthcare is a human right
The Affordable Care Act has improved access to health insurance. But we don't need health insurance. We need universal, affordable access to health care. I suppose the current Congressional proposals for an improved single payer program to replace the current health "system". Such a system has been proposed in prior Congresses as HR 676. .
I support this statement by Physicians For A National Health Program:
"We propose to replace the ACA with a publicly financed National Health Program that would fully cover medical care for all Americans, while lowering costs by eliminating the profit driven private insurance industry with its massive overhead".
End corporate personhood/money is speech
To address Citizens United and other US Supreme Court decisions which have given corporations our human rights, we need a 28th Constitutional amendment. Such an amendment has been proposed - HJR48, the We The People Amendment. I would sign on immediately as a co-sponsor.
Additionally, we need an effective system of public funding for candidates running for federal offices. Therefore, I support passage of Government By the People Act (H.R.20) and the Fair Elections Now Act (S.1538).
