You want out of the box, well this may be way too out of the box for you. After practically taxing us to death, the government owes us something.
Just a warning, this is extremely radical.
The problem we face is actually what unemployment creates, which is the lack of money for food and shelter.
First we get rid of welfare and social security as we know it. We replace it with a system that would pay everyone who is 20 years or older and not in
school $2,000 a month if they earn under $50,000 a year. That should let everyone be able to buy or rent a house, pay for utilities, and buy food. At
least on the low end.
People who can't work or get hired will be spending the money they will be given one way or another, and putting it back into the economy. Spending
money always helps the economy, right? The money will also help the housing market get back up on its feet, since people should be able to afford some
sort of housing.
After that, anyone who wants more has to work for it. With most of the necessities already taken care of, any money earned above and beyond that can
help someone get into business and hire employees if they want to.
The money going back into the economy should help put life back into the economy, and thus create more job opportunities. People will be buying more,
and thus raising the demand for more things to be produced, or services provided.
The $2000 a month from the government would eliminate the EIC, which gives back the largest tax return to families. They already got their tax return
plus some. The $2000 a month would be tax free, but the government will eventually be getting it back through all their other taxes anyhow.
I would like to see free health care with the elimination of health insurance. The government pays for the hospitals, offices, and all medical
supplies. Where the doctors are being paid well with a minimum of $75,000 a year for a family practitioner. Their houses paid for, and a free vacation
every year. In return they have to work x amount of hours a year, especially where it is needed. The doctors, not the government, decides the best way
to treat the patient. That is truly wishful thinking. People would rather see their favorite sports players receive multi-millions of dollars a year
just so they can get entertained.
I would like to see the large war machine to be reigned in along with the pork barrel spending. I would like to see the pharmaceutical companies, wall
street, and darn lawyers with their frivolous law suites reigned in also.
As I said it is extremely radical. I don't know if we took all the money that goes into welfare, social security, and EIC if it would be enough to
pay for what is being proposed. Maybe they could if they added in all the pork barrel spending. Health care would be another issue entirely. I would
think the cost of health care would eventually go down with everyone being able to get issues taken care of before they become bad.
I bet if the government really wanted to, they could make this plan work. They made the federal reserve and stock market work. We buy and sell things
with basically funny money now as it is. I imagine if the federal reserve really wanted to wipe out over half of the debt that is in their books now,
they could do so. They don't allow anyone to take a look at what they are doing anyhow.
Then again it is not about us and how they can make our lives better. It is more about how much power and control they can inflict on us. They would
be happy to give us the money if they could make us volunteer our time more than 40 hours a week, so we would not have a chance to earn any more
money. That doesn't help us or the economy. I'm sure certain people would not even be able to get a volunteer job let alone a regular job.
The idea will have to remain an idea. It would be twisted in even worse ways to oppress the people. That is what the government and elites is all
about, isn't it?
