It has been some time since I posted here on the Sanchismos blog. Couldn’t think of anything cogent to say, I guess. Whatever…
But now, if anyone is listening, especially anyone in the Democrat establishment, your ‘Better Deal’ sucks!!! Never have you had a better chance to guide the USA into the 21st century!
How about ‘A Newer Deal’ that doesn’t plan to give $$$$ to corporations to better train workers because that gambit has not worked at all for ever so long! How about ‘A Newer Deal’ that would actually do something for us folks who have been neglected for that last three decades?
Instead, how about ‘A Newer Deal’ that does what the New Deal did decades ago?! How about a Federal program to address the infrastructure disaster the USA has become? Have you driven across the US Interstate System lately? Have you tried to take rapid transit from anywhere to anywhere? Have you ridden an Amtrak train to anywhere?
My god, this isn’t rocket science! Our bridges, asphalt highways, municipal transit systems, water systems, electrical grid are FALLING APART. Use Federal Funds to employ an army to fix the damned infrastructure!! Deploy a part of this army to become the anti-hacker Delta Force, using thousands who do not want to work in the ‘trades’ to bolster our national purpose, progress and defense.
Yes, Federal Funds, i.e., more taxes, because the only way we are going to get out of this mess is to pay for it! But the employment, the boost to the economy at every level would be astonishing!
Is anyone listening???
