Poor neighborhoods –  Sanders was the clear favorite

Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren, who are among the frontrunners nationally, have amassed the largest campaign war chests of all the Democratic candidates while refusing to hold high-dollar fundraisers and calling for higher taxes on the wealthy.

Senator Bernie Sanders is topping the Democratic field with 31 of percent support. Sen. Bernie Sanders is leading the field in the California Democratic primary race, with Sen. Elizabeth Warren in second place, according to a new poll. Senator Bernie Sanders vowed to use his executive power as president to legalize marijuana nationally and expunge the criminal records of those convicted for possessing the drug during a rally near Dallas, Texas Friday.

Why the Trump Administration’s Coronavirus Response Continues to Raise Concerns

Trump vs. “disease X”

The administration is setting up the US to botch a pandemic response.

Why the Trump Administration’s Coronavirus Response Continues to Raise Concerns  A pandemic is now likely, however, the CDC also warns — making more cases and person-to-person transmission in the country inevitable.

“America First” doesn’t work during pandemics

More broadly, the Trump administration has repeatedly signaled that it’s not interested in supporting international development and foreign aid. In its most recent budget proposal, for fiscal year 2019, the administration also proposed slashing funding for the State Department and USAID by a quarter. This “America First” worldview does not bode well for necessary international collaboration in global health, as Bill Gates wrote in his recent annual letter.

Now is the time for US businesses, hospitals, and communities to begin preparing for the possible spread of #COVID19

CDC officials say the risk of exposure for the American public remains low, there continue to be troubling signs that the Trump administration has been mismanaging the U.S. response and may not be adequately prepared for whatever happens next.

Is Inequality Inevitable?
Wealth naturally trickles up in free-market economies, model suggests

Just read The Inescapable Casino via the Scientific American app

If the economy is unequal to begin with, the poorest agent’s wealth will probably decrease the fastest. Where does it go? It must go to wealthier agents because there are no poorer agents. Things are not much better for the second-poorest agent. In the long run, all participants in this economy except for the very richest one will see their wealth decay exponentially.

To My Fellow Billionaires …

Marc Benioff: We Need a New Capitalism [New York Times]

To my fellow business leaders and billionaires, I say that we can no longer wash our hands of our responsibility for what people do with our products. Yes, profits are important, but so is society. And if our quest for greater profits leaves our world worse off than before, all we will have taught our children is the power of greed.

Why you need Bernie Sanders and MedicareForAll Universal Health Care

MedicareForAll universal health-care

Harvard  epidemiologist Marc Lipsitch predicts coronavirus will infect up to 70 percent of humanity  it “will ultimately not be containable” and, within a year, will infect somewhere between 40 and 70 percent of humanity, The Atlantic reports.

But no worries right? it’s just like having a cold, and you have great insurance now right?

It was true in 1993 and it is true now: the time is long, long overdue for the United States to join the rest of the industrialized world and have a universal health care system. Yale Study Says Medicare for All Would Save U.S. $450 Billion Prevent Nearly 70,000 Deaths a Year

Banks Crash America. They pay off the Congress and  – and no banker one gets arrested or goes to jail. Tax payer bails them out with TRILLIONS.

There is no white collar crime that gets  punished. Trump granted clemency to tax cheats, Wall Street crooks, billionaires, and corrupt government officials. 

The Rich  are protected.

The richest 400 Americans own $2.9 trillion—the size of the entire UK economy. These 400 billionaires pay a lower tax rate than the half of Americans living paycheck to paycheck.

Everyone knows the runaway oligarchy distribution of wealth ruins everything for everyone.

DuPont knowingly dumped poisons in our water for decades. The victims are children like Abigail Herrmann who are drinking “forever chemicals” across America.

After taking government handouts like $880 million in tax breaks in 2018, Walmart is now cutting jobs. Here’s a “radical” idea: The richest corporations in America laying off workers and paying them starvation wages need to get off corporate welfare.

The rich have waged 45 years of class war. It’s about time working people stand up and fight back.

It’s no secret that the billionaire class dominates our political and economic life. To end poverty, homelessness, hunger and lead poisoning in America, the ultra-rich must pay their fair share. Even if that means buying fewer $89 million paintings and $70 million cars.

$106 billion in profits. $0 in taxes. That’s 91 of America’s richest corporations. By taking on the very wealthy, the billionaire class, and large multinational corporations, we will raise the funds to provide the services that will give dignity to working families in America.

The wealthiest top 1% owe 70 percent of unpaid taxes. If we collected less than a third of that, we could pay for universal nutritious school meals for children. Do not tell me kids have to go hungry at school in the richest country in the world.

Medicare for All Act, has the potential to transform the availability and efficiency of American health-care services.

@SenSanders is right!

No more premiums.
No more co-payments.
No more deductibles
No more out-of-control prescription drug prices. Medicare for All means significant reductions in health care costs for American families

Three people own more wealth than half of America. 13 million people are working two or three jobs to make ends meet. That is going to change when we make corporate America put workers on corporate boards and have a share in their companies’ profits.

Summary

Although health care expenditure per capita is higher in the USA than in any other country, more than 37 million Americans do not have health insurance, and 41 million more have inadequate access to care. Efforts are ongoing to repeal the Affordable Care Act which would exacerbate health-care inequities. By contrast, a universal system, such as that proposed in the Medicare for All Act, has the potential to transform the availability and efficiency of American health-care services. Taking into account both the costs of coverage expansion and the savings that would be achieved through the Medicare for All Act, we calculate that a single-payer, universal health-care system is likely to lead to a 13% savings in national health-care expenditure, equivalent to more than US$450 billion annually (based on the value of the US$ in 2017). The entire system could be funded with less financial outlay than is incurred by employers and households paying for health-care premiums combined with existing government allocations. This shift to single-payer health care would provide the greatest relief to lower-income households. Furthermore, we estimate that ensuring health-care access for all Americans would save more than 68 000 lives and 1·73 million life-years every year compared with the status quo.

Feb 19, 2020

As the Democratic presidential hopefuls prepare to take to the debate stage tonight, we turn to a central issue of the campaign: Medicare for All. In a new study, Yale scholars have found that Medicare for All will save Americans more than $450 billion and prevent 68,000 deaths every year. The study in The Lancet — one of the oldest and most prestigious peer-reviewed medical journals — found that Medicare for All, supported by Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren, will save money and is more cost-effective than “Medicare for All Who Want It, “a model supported by Pete Buttigieg. Sanders referenced the study at a campaign rally in Carson City, Nevada. For more, we go to New Haven, Connecticut, where we’re joined by Alison Galvani, director of the Center for Infectious Disease Modeling and Analysis at Yale’s School of Public Health. She is the lead author of the new Lancet study, “Improving the prognosis of health care in the USA.”
