“The Party Leader...” With the optimistic guise of “Build Back Better,” Democrats just gave the rich a massive tax cut – that heavily benefits blue states, not to mention funneled their wealthy donor class master's untold resources and foreign subsidized assistance; amazingly, timed in perfect unison with the official confirmation of President Biden’s curiously conservative FED chairman choice – Jerome Powell. To secure the support of moderate Democrats, the “Party Leaders” have included provisions that restore a lucrative tax break, former President Donald Trump slashed, in his signature 2017 tax law. As this was occurring, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) oversaw the passage of the filibuster-proof $1.75 billion budget reconciliation package. Breitbart News & Al Jazeera explained how the state and local tax provision in the bill would represent a windfall for the wealthy on the backs of the middle class; as well as gut student loan reform, ultimately silencing tangible hope of loan forgiveness and debt relief… People are not truly free when they are unable to feed their family. People are not truly free when they are unable to retire with dignity. People are not truly free when they are unemployed or underpaid or when they are exhausted by working long hours. People are not truly free when they have no health care. “So, let me define for you, simply and straightforwardly, what democratic socialism means to me. It builds on what Franklin Delano Roosevelt said when he fought for guaranteed economic rights for all Americans…” Building on what Martin Luther King, Jr. said in 1968 when he stated that; “This country has socialism for the rich, and rugged individualism for the poor.” It builds on the success of many other countries around the world that have done a far better job than we have in protecting the needs of their working families, the elderly, the children, the sick and the poor… To add insult to injury, we were told that not only were the banks too big to fail, the bankers were too big to jail… “Kids who get caught possessing marijuana get police records. Wall Street CEOs who help destroy the economy get raises in their salaries…” This is what Martin Luther King, Jr. meant by socialism for the rich and rugged individualism for everyone else. --- This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. https://anchor.fm/app Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/thomas-saulsberry/support
