"Who Will Stand Up to the Superrich?"
Can this country afford the systemic damage being done by the ever-growing income inequality between the wealthiest Americans and everyone else?
Broadcast Union News: Instead of raising the age for collecting Social Security, just remove the income cap so everyone pays in on their full income. Instead of cutting taxes, cut tax breaks for corporations and the top 5% of income earners. Give tax rebates for actual full-time job creation, and impose tax penalties for moving jobs overseas. Pass the Employee Free Choice Act (EFCA) to create a more level playing field for collective bargaining. Create massive public works projects to fix America's crumbling infrastructure and create jobs. Bring back the draft so that all Americans, from every economic sector, have a stake in ending the wars that have gone on far too long. Make campaign contribution reforms that create a fair chance for candidates to compete without huge corporate contributions. Pass the Marriage Equality Act, eliminate "Don't Ask, Don't Tell", and increase funding for enforcement of human rights, worker rights, and civil rights. Do these things and we will have made a start on saving Democracy in this great nation. - BD
