The link between the people and our elected officials, Congress and President, is broken.
Act 1: Straight Arrow Public Funding of Candidates:
$200 voucher account for every registered voter = 40B$ in play in an election cycle
Unused Voucher funds returned to U.S. Treasury
Voter Voucher dollars can only be given to candidates bound to take nothing else.
There will still be corporate candidates.
Our candidates will be identified on the ballot as Straight Arrow Candidates.
Act 2: Improved Medicare for All
Healthcare is a human right:
Everybody In – Nobody Out. No co-pays. No deductibles.
Covering: Medicines, Dental, Vision, Hearing, and Mental Health.
Cost: 1 Trillion Dollars LESS per year than we pay for Healthcare now.
Corporate donors own our Congress. They fund (almost) every election.
Congress passes the Acts they demand. Acts that profit them at our expense.
Those who bring home the bacon (Act 2) can be re-elected by public funding (Act 1)
The immense advantages, the inevitability, of Improved Medicare for All is every day more clear.
But why Public Funding? Because it is the only thing we can do right now.
We can't Amend the Constitution until we control the whole Government.
But Public Funding exists and is accepted by the Court already -
- it exists for the Presidential election Only - at a minuscule funding level.
It is the singular tiny defect in the Corporate Death Star that threatens the lives of our children, the future of our species. That Death Star is the web of laws extracted from our corrupt Congress by their donor-owners - built on the framework of specious Supreme Court decisions from '76 Valleo forward.
It is Death by lawless military contractors in EndlessWars.
Wars for corporate profit at our expense.
It is Wealthcare pretending to be Healthcare.
It is the Injustice of for-profit prisons
It is the profit motive at the expense of education in for-profit schools.
We will drop a money-bomb into that tiny defect. The Death Star will disintegrate.
Both these things must be done. They are best done in that moment in which the Bernie Blue wave crashes into the House and the remaining incumbents quake in primal fear - fear that their donor-owner dollars will not secure their re-election.
When we pass these 2 Acts we will have a Congress that works for us. A Congress that will deconstruct the Corporate Welfare State and work to achieve:
