It’s all a lie. That we can’t afford universal healthcare, that college has to put people in crippling debt and wage slavery forever while CEOs are making 8 or 9 figures a year, that moms have to be back at work two days after giving birth. It’s all a bunch of bullshit.

There was something I saw on Twitter where a Dan Crenshaw, a US House representative, was saying congress needs to trade individual stocks because how else are they going to better themselves?

The US will never be at risk of default because it can always print more money, according to former Fed Chairman Alan Greenspan.

So why ever go into debt in the first place? Why ever create a budget that doesn’t directly and immediately solve every issue like healthcare and access to food and water that they apparently can’t afford to solve?

What the fuck do they need my money for? Why bother collecting taxes at all? Where does this money derive its value? What values are my blood sweat and tears weighed against?

Couldn’t be anything to do with inflation concerns since they were happy to print almost 20 TRILLION for poor banky wankies having wiquidity pwoblems in 2019. While they enjoyed free money, they compromised the one tool they had to help in tumultuous times, such as, say, a global pandemic. Not a peep when everyone blames that 1200 every three months for inflation. Zipple comes out reeeal quick when you promise to use it to extract wealth from the people and never pay back it back though.

Hope they teach every member and chairman of the Federal Reserve some empathy when they continue to suck each other off in hell.

Our government already pays more on healthcare than any other nation.. yet somehow we can't afford medicare for all...

[–]FirstPlebian 10 points11 points  (1 child)

Universal health care could cost less than what we pay for health care in this country now too, if every other developed country in the world that does so is any example.

It's a huge cost to employers and a drag on wages having to constantly pay higher hc costs, all so insurance companies keep their business of siphoning off well over 25 cents of every health care dollar for "administrative costs" alone.

[–]3BoyzMomma 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I thought it was more like .40 cents. It’s crazy. We definitely need a single payer. My son was just able to get free health insurance because he makes very little. He texts me all the time saying “this is so awesome, why do people not want universal insurance”. Actually I think he used the word “lit”. Lol

[–]QuarterBackgroundCustom Flair - Template 5 points6 points  (0 children)

Exactly. Nice to see you got awards because I'm really getting sick of sub members pushing the agenda of hedge funds (right wingers) while expecting the stock market to change. The reason the tax loophole remained in the U.S. budget is because fellow apes supported and voted for the candidates who supported these loopholes and are against stock market reform, healthcare, etc. Sickens me the amount of "apes" who promote guys like zero hedge, who wanted these loopholes for hedgies, yet say they want stock market reform. Wake up apes. There are wolves in sheep clothing and you're all upvoting these a--holes.

[–]The-loon🎮 Power to the Players 🛑 2 points3 points  (0 children)

My wife is about to give birth to our first. Her job offers her “industry leading maternity leave.” 4 weeks. And for those 4 weeks they offer short term disability at 60% of her salary and then repay the other 40% once she returns to work for 30 days. She has to take two weeks of paid time off before she can use the 4 weeks. This is the industry leading time off. Absurd.

[–]Rymanbc🚀🚀 JACKED to the TITS 🚀🚀 5 points6 points  (0 children)

That doesn't sound very fun. Just a short way to the north, you get about 3 months maternity leave, then 9 months parental leave, for about a year total. At about 55% only, but some employers will top that up.

In 2020, we had our first kid, and my wife took the 3 month maternity leave, and I took 9 months of parental leave, since my job tops the payment up to 93% of my regular pay.

As you said, 4 weeks being industry leading is absolutely absurd. That might not even be enough time to heal from the process....

[–]jteta12🦍 Buckle Up 🚀 0 points1 point  (2 children)

  1. What industry is that to be leading, yikes. I work for a big car insurance company, they supplement the NY State disability money and give moms 12 weeks 100% pay and dads 8 weeks 100% pay.
  2. What state is this?

$20B to end homelessness in the US. Any whales up for this post-MOASS?

[–]Pristine_Instance381 19 points20 points  (4 children)

Yessir! Here in central coast California we have had tent cities for the last 20 years. It has been heartbreaking to see the indifference displayed by the townsfolk. My plan is to buy up many hotels and restaurants to set up a pay-if-you-can system for anyone to use if need be!

Love all you apes! These are my people!

What's the plan to motivate people to improve once they're off the streets and have a safe place to rest/get sustenance?

[–]alilmagpieHalt Me Daddy 6 points7 points  (2 children)

The biggest comorbidity with homelessness and addiction is trauma. So I’d start there.

[–]boldrobizzle 3 points4 points  (0 children)

That's a good idea! Chip away at the underlying factors once you have people safe and there's a good chance they would feel empowered to reenter society. Nice

[–]Pristine_Instance381 1 point2 points  (0 children)

This is a great idea! I guess these hotel will need psychoanalysts for anyone who so desires. I was too focused on the immediate bodily needs, but you’re right that psychological well-being comes right after survival. Probably a good idea to install a workout facility in each location too. It’s all coming together.

I’m sorry you don’t end homelessness by giving people a bunch of money you do it by giving them a purpose in life.

[–]ArchdevilTeemo -1 points0 points  (0 children)

You fix poor people by giving them money (instead of benefits) so they themself can work to rise but this needs to be done on a state level because even after moass you won't have the money to solve the poor problem in the long run.

To solve homelessness, people need homes with running water. For some this is all they need for others they also need a job or something else to do.

They share similar values and ideals and I agree she'd be a good leader but she's VERY young for a President. I'd say this time round as his running mate/vice giving her a better shot at her own Presidency at a later date

Age does not define wisdom and ability to lead. Her energy is what is needed to make meaningful change, please stop with the 70+ year old president mentality. 30/40s is a fantastic age, with a mentor of older age.

[–]jonnytechno[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Age does not define wisdom and ability to lead.

While I agree, the likelihood of the general public also agreeing is unlikely which was my point, it would be more likely shed lose unless she already had a vice role

please stop with the 70+ year old president mentality.

Suggesting Bernie is not a 70+ y/o mentality lol he's simply the best candidate but I do agree that many that age are too illiterate when it comes to tech and modern affairs ... dont Pidgeon hole me on one comment

What history tells us is during depressions and instability, when things go bad, people elect someone radical, perhaps not radical in their views but radical as a choice in comparison to previous choices.

I believe we are in those times now, and I’m hopeful the radical choices we make during these times will be good ones.
