I've been having a meltdown today because Chris Hedges' piece about the US economy on truthdig [read with caution] scares the hell out of me. I called the White House, because Obama said to push him, SO I'M PUSHING!!! I told the volunteer on the phone that I had five points to make. I said:
- Re-regulate the corporations;
- Make corporations pay their fair share of taxes;
- Break up monopolies;
- Stop supplying banks & insurance companies with bailout funds, and give them to the common people who will help reinvigorate our economy by recirculating the money.
