Trickle UP Economics
These are the people I care about. Us, you and me, my kids and your kids.
Think of the inner cities and the rural areas of the country. Hopeless kids in despair. No job prospects. They often turn to drugs and crime.
Think too of the unemployed. They are losing their homes, many already have. They are defaulting on debt obligations. Depression folks is not good for America.
To end this Depression, we need to invest in Americans. Put Americans to work. Instead of budget cuts, we need to be hiring millions of young people and unemployed Americans. We need to put the country back to work
Work is every bit as much a right for the American People as Health Care is. And if the Government has to be the employer of last resort, so be it.
If we invest in Americans by putting them to work, the wealth then will begin to trickle up. Mortgages can be paid, folks can buy cars, young people can pay down tuition debt and we can all start to pay down our debts a bit more. The rich folks still get their money with "Trickle UP Economics". It is just that we get to pay our bills and live out our modest lives with some dignity.
What is wrong with that idea? We shouldn't have Unemployment Bureaus. We should have Employment Bureaus. We shouldn't have Unemployment Insurance. We need Employment Insurance.
Let help Americans. Let put everyone who want to work at jobs that will help us pay our bills.
Don't insult my intelligence. There is nothing wrong with this idea!
When we saved the Banks and Financial Institutions with TARP funds, we transferred our tax dollars to the rich. Now it is our turn.
It is time to transfer some of that money back to us.
Put Americans to work.
There, I asked nicely.
Don't try my patience. I won't be so nice if you keep taking away our homes and pushing us further and further into debt and despair.
I asked nicely.
Don't make us mad.
Labor Day is not that far away....you wouldn't want 30,000,000 unemployed Americans taking to the streets would you? You can figure this out quickly you know. When the Big Banks etc were in trouble you said they were too big to fail. What of us? What are we? We are too many to fail. You cannot write off our cities, our young people and our rural areas and the rest of us.
We want jobs!
We want Jobs!
I cannot make it much simpler than that.
