If I didn't know which country had developed the above plan, with those particular areas of concentration, I would have thought it was an American plan developed by some progressive individuals as a proposal for the government. But, no, this is China's plan.
It's hard to believe, but the Chinese plan calls for the creation of a universal healthcare system, including an "action" plan. China, a communist country is going to develop a healthcare plan for all its people, totalling1.4 billion? How can China possibly do that when here in America politicians and others say something like the following?
"Universal healthcare is not feasible in America because it would have to cover some 330 million Americans and the massive costs would make it prohibitive. Maybe those much smaller nations in Europe and Scandinavia can afford the costs because their populations are much smaller. We just can't reach that high here."
Why aren't we planning how to put an end to these horrific mass shootings that are becoming an epidemic in our country? This government, and we're talking about Republicans in particular, as well as many Americans who support them are, collectively, so very uncaring that they won't even talk about banning all assault weapons no matter how many helpless little children are torn apart by these instruments of murder. We need someone to create a plan to somehow unlock their twisted and frozen brains.
It seems that America has lapsed into a condition in which more thought is given to what we can't do than what we can do. Well, we have to reverse that sad state of affairs and start to think much more positively. So let's do this: let's develop a 5-year plan for America with Focus areas like those China set down.
Focus areas for America's proposed 2020-2024 5-year plan
Innovation: government and business cooperation working together to create and seek new horizons, including a new and exciting manufacturing sector based on new technology.
Green New Deal: develop and implement a step by step plan to combat climate change; work closely to coordinate with other nations
Infrastructure: make this a high priority, initiate a program to repair and rebuild our national infrastructure
New alternate energy: another high priority. Immediately begin a process to develop solar power, wind power, and other alternative sources of energy
The military: conduct a comprehensive study to determine how to scale back US military bases across the world, while still maintaining a powerful military. Transfer funding into key domestic needs
Inequality: take measures to eliminate the massive inequality of wealth and income; the wealth of the nation must be far more equally distributed
