President Trump Passes Universal Health Care, Usurps Democrats!

President Trump Passes Universal Health Care, Usurps Democrats and Destroys Neocon Never Trumpsters.

.

How Will He Do It?
Well, he could just pass U-Care with a 15% VAT, control medical prices and procedures, and cap profits.*

OR

He could roll this out and call it a bi-partisan deal.

On Medicaid: Raise limit to $23k, full coverage with profit caps that are fair, these will be tax deductible for hospitals, labs, clinics, doctors and nurses. Add small co-pays from $24k up to $28k.

From $29k open up the free market across state lines.

On Medicare: For a recipient with no other insurance, lower the age to 55 based on income; same formula as above on income levels until age 65 and making under $250k. Yes, if you earn more than $250k a year in retirement you had and are still having a very nice, safe and free life in this country, you can give a little back in co-pays.

 

If President Trump can get close to this he’ll win the 2020 election in a landslide and perhaps be even more loved than Reagan, Kennedy and FDR.

 

Note: This plan for US Universal Health Care Would Be For American Citizens Only. You will need notarized documents as proof in order to be eligible. Also, States along with a Federal Government Oversight Board can negotiate prices and procedural costs with hospitals and doctors, using a simple one page form.

 

Further: For non US citizens cash up front or a payment plan can be arranged, this may include Administrative fees.

If payment is not made within 90 days the country of origin will be billed the full price of the medical care with fees. If destitute, private charities can step in or pro-bono work can be provided from a medical institution or college.

For those who are US Citizens, but have lost all records, a grant to replace official documents will be provided if proven indigent.

In the rare case that someone who was born in the US without any documentation, and is under the age of 65, those persons will have to go before a board of governors, provide proof of past employment, care or marriage, along with testimony and witnesses, otherwise they will need to buy private insurance or seek help from a charity clinic. Unfortunately, something like this could take a great deal of time in the very beginning. Anyone caught lying or falsifying documents will be prosecuted to the full extent of the law and denied U-Care.  Any falsification by foreigners will mean confiscation of all property and possessions and instant deportation. Any falsification of income made by US citizens will mean a 5 year denial of U-Care, including Medicare. You will have to rely on Private Insurance or Charity Clinics for those 5 years.

It’s a start, eh?

 

Eventually those who do come to the US on a Green Card will be covered providing the systems can afford any additional stress.

Further: If Trump’s proposal for a solar wall generates a surplus of energy those funds should be diverted to provide solar energy conversion for the rest of the nation. Once that has been accomplished and the excess energy is sold outside of the US that wealth can then be transferred to the health care system in order to fund more medical R&D, which can then be shared with the world for a small fee.

Another source to look at is US foreign AID, 2/3 of this money goes to Israel alone. The US needs to end all Foreign Aid outside emergency medical and food. It should also be required that American Companies in foreign lands pay at least a 10% profit fee to operate in those nations. These funds can be placed in escrow for any emergency need that arises. As a nation our reputation is important and US companies who have benefited greatly by developing in the US should work to maintain that good reputation.

 

If you have any questions,  better ideas or plans put your thoughts in the comments and I’ll add them to the list. In the mean time I will continue to add thoughts and ideas to this proposal so that all Americans have access to health care, clean energy, clean food and water, safe neighborhoods and clean housing.
.

If you find my ideas interesting please look at the model community I have also proposed, also feel free to support me on Patreon, be the first 😉
.

*FYI: Most medical innovations, R&D and the like are done on the tax payer dollar through universities, more and more innovations are now coming from foreign schools and their government funded programs, we need to be champions again in this field.

Give Your Money Away Challenge #GYMAC

billionaires“We should do away with the absolutely specious notion that everybody has to earn a living. It is a fact today that one in ten thousand of us can make a technological breakthrough capable of supporting all the rest. The youth of today are absolutely right in recognizing this nonsense of earning a living. We keep inventing jobs because of this false idea that everybody has to be employed at some kind of drudgery because, according to Malthusian-Darwinian theory he must justify his right to exist. So we have inspectors of inspectors and people making instruments for inspectors to inspect inspectors. The true business of people should be to go back to school and think about whatever it was they were thinking about before somebody came along and told them they had to earn a living.” -R Buckminster Fuller

Government hasn’t worked for the little people since Jimmy Carter, roughly 36 years, and it ain’t going to work in the future for them either – YET – these wealthy so called Liberals and Christians have done little to nothing that helps the poor – they all seem fine with keeping a broken government, course they profit large off of the dream to fix it, their money invested in the stock-market they criticize, but we all know it will never be fixed and they will continue to profit. Is it a lie they tell themselves? Only human after all.

So here’s my challenge to all the upper 20% of liberal left, progressives, democrats – whatever you call yourselves these days – and those who call themselves Good Christians, GIVE YOUR MONEY AWAY CHALLENGE #GYMAC.

Make being greedy rich shameful again (#MGRSA? too many acronyms?). See who can give the most away to as many people as possible who can work to live their dream and not go completely broke. Bypass the wealthy bankers and stockholders, invest directly in real live people.

What the giver will receive: the incalculable adoration of most of the human species. Is that not enough?

Spread Joy and call it an Art Project.

Add conditions to the funds if you like, pay people to work at something they love to do, that will benefit others.  Mentor a student, sponsor a protégé.  Y’all got lawyers/agents to draw up a contracts, right? Be like Christ or Buddha and just GIVE IT AWAY lottery style if you must! You can spread it out, use it as a tax write off, promote yourself as the best human being on the planet. Become a real entrepreneur, a mensch, show the republicans you can do great things for business, the planet AND real people by allowing those who receive the funds to keep their dignity, maybe actually work towards fixing that broken government you’ve been talking about, all at the same time.

Don’t you think it’s time?

Unless, that’s not what you really want? We know keeping the status quo keeps your pockets full. Is that what you’re all about? We wonder…

The Industrial Revolution is Over – Technology has changed everything, it should also change our burdens; so we were told. Time to share the wealth! Move Forward! Onward and Upward as a species. Face it, most of you just got lucky, right time, right place, a little drive.

Regardless of how you got there, Just Do It!  Please, do something good.

Find some hard working people, lost people, desperate people, good people hanging by a thread and reach out, give them a helping hand or a leg up, throw a lottery; luck be a lady, or fund some good idea;  get 10% of the profits if it works and then fund more people.

Honestly, what’s $15k/$20k a year to a multi-millionaire or billionaire?

Promote #basicincome, DO SOMETHING instead of always profiting off our misery.

It’s a win win for you anyway you look at it.

p.s. I don’t mean to be harsh or sarcastic, but people are committing suicide because they see no hope, mostly because of debt; medical, student and otherwise. They no longer have job security, they live in constant fear and anxiety, no way to plan ahead or reach for greater goals. No longer do we see an increase in wages for average people, not even for the cost of living, and the loss of benefits, health care, no holiday pay or vacations wages, even after years of service, why go on? Many people’s greatest hope is winning the lottery that’s what it has come down to – pure luck. It’s understandable to wonder what is the point of going on, or to even bring a child into such a world and it is an even harsher reality when people see crooked bankers bailed out with their labor, and still receiving bonuses, CEOs making 1000 time more than the average worker as their income falls, and of course the endless wars which diminished all of our standard of living, with the shame that the slaughter of innocent people is being done in our name, we have lost our moral compass. If you have the means you really need to start giving back or grant these people final peace and honestly state openly that you are a Malthusian Darwinist – but please do not call yourself a liberal or Christian, that is a horrible trick and a sin to play on another human being.

p.p.s. Someone asked me how do you get on the Random Actors List?
I say click on the links and that will give you a pretty good idea of what makes a random actor, a real mensch. I don’t have a scientific method set up to analyze it, but I figure at least 50% of your time and wealth is probably a good start. I would also say a hand written letter (typed is okay too) or some token of appreciation, from the people you have helped would become priceless works of art. I personally have a story of a token given to me a long time ago, I’ll share that story here .

 

p.p.p.s. YES, YES and YES, I was raised in a hard core FDR, JFK, LBJ, Jimmy Carter Democrat environment, but I’ve seen the democratic party become a corporate owned entity conglomerate starting with the Clintons and now Obama. I saw the DNC work to destroy the Greens and cheat Bernie Sanders. This is not the party of FDR, JFK, LBJ or Jimmy Carter any more, those days have been over for decades, you need to face that fact. The little people no longer have a voice anywhere in government. Both parties are controlled by banks and corporations. The only way to even try and restore it is for wealthy liberals to put up the fund that restores the life and dignity of the little guy, the voiceless, the working people again. Your protests will do little to nothing, they have already put you in cages, tapped the phones of activist organizers, made whistle-blowers criminals. How can you not see this? If the wealthy liberals  do not do this act I’m afraid then we can only assume they are in on the deal, their own personal profits mean more to them than their fellow citizens. Let’s hope they get on the correct side of history.

 

Can’t just bitch any more, you have to build.

Regarding Scott Walker In Wisconsin

June 1, 2012
President Barack Obama
The White House
1600 Pennsylvania Ave, NW
Washington, DC 20050

Dear President Obama:

On June 5, 2012, hundreds of thousands of your supporters, including firefighters, police, nurses and teachers will go the polls to recall Governor Scott Walker, the arch-reactionary, the opponent of the basic right of collective bargaining and many other decent, established policies.

Political observers are saying that if the Republicans defeat your Democratic Party on Tuesday, it will have wide ramifications throughout the country and will probably cost you Wisconsin this November. Last year I noticed how quiet you were about the large and resourceful demonstrations in Madison that were so inspiring to many of your supporters around the country. You did not go to speak to these good Democrats. Your political operatives in the White House even turned thumbs down on the request by the Wisconsin state federation of labor that Vice President Joe Biden – a self-styled “union man”- address one hundred thousand working people and students before the state capitol in Madison.

So the main public organizations and demonstrations against the draconian Republican assault on your constituents and on long-standing Democratic Party policies – their rights and their livelihoods – were not supported by either you or an otherwise eager Joe Biden at any of those Madison turnouts.

Are you a leader? Or are you a calculator? Either way your status as “missing in action” in Wisconsin, as writer Paul Hogarth put it yesterday, is not even smart, expedient politics. It is one thing not to champion the priorities of your labor supporters – such as pressing to raise the minimum wage to $9.50 an hour by 2011, which you promised in 2008. It is quite another to betray these working and unemployed people to the cruelties of a massively funded Walker campaign which, if it wins, promises to turn Wisconsin into WisKochsin.

Perhaps you have private polls that support your absenteeism from the state. Perhaps you have other calculations not shared by the legendary calculator-in-chief Bill Clinton who is going to Wisconsin tomorrow to support the workers.

Whatever your hidden motivations are for inaction in situ, people will be asking over and over again whenever you go to fat cat fundraisers, to foreign countries promoting Harley Davidson motorcycles, to ESPN knowledgeably picking the winners for each level of the March Madness basketball tournaments, to business gatherings on Wall Street and elsewhere, this question:

Barack Obama did not have the time nor the interest to come and help us during the last days of our historic struggle against the cruelest, most craven, most corporatist-indentured Republican Party in history. Where was he?

Unless you fly to Wisconsin before Tuesday, you’d better HOPE that the polls CHANGE and the good people of Wisconsin turn out Governor Walker. Otherwise, you’ll be up against the memories of your abandonment all the way to November that will not be restricted to the boundaries of the Badger State.

Sincerely yours,
Ralph Nader
P.O. Box 19312
Washington, DC 20036

M3

Discontinuance of M3

On March 23, 2006, the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System will cease publication of the M3 monetary aggregate. The Board will also cease publishing the following components: large-denomination time deposits, repurchase agreements (RPs), and Eurodollars. The Board will continue to publish institutional money market mutual funds as a memorandum item in this release.

Measures of large-denomination time deposits will continue to be published by the Board in the Flow of Funds Accounts (Z.1 release) on a quarterly basis and in the H.8 release on a weekly basis (for commercial banks).

M3 does not appear to convey any additional information about economic activity that is not already embodied in M2 and has not played a role in the monetary policy process for many years. Consequently, the Board judged that the costs of collecting the underlying data and publishing M3 outweigh the benefits.

Senators Who Voted For Wall Street

The US Senate has rejected a proposal that would split up the six largest banks in an effort to ensure that large financial firms do not threaten the economy if they fail.

The measure, which failed by a vote of 33 to 61, would have placed hard limits on banks’ market share of insured deposits and limited the size of their non-deposit liabilities.
