The System is Broken ! Here is How WE Fit It!

A STRATEGY FOR CHANGE 

In the 70's, the Supreme Court declared Money to be “Political Speech”.
This Legalized Bribery has produced a Government that represents Corporations, not People. 

PUBLIC FUNDING OF ELECTIONS

- Every voter gets a $200 voucher account.
- For candidates who take nothing else.

MEDICARE FOR ALL (M4A)

- Birth to Death Healthcare.
- Includes Vision, Hearing, Dental, Mental Health, and Prescription Drugs.
- No exclusions for Pre-Existing Conditions.
- No Insurance premiums, deductibles, or co-pays.
- Paid for by:
-- Restoring progressive tax brackets + a wealth tax.
-- Social Cost Taxes on tobacco – alcohol – legal marijuana.
M4A will produce far better health outcomes - with tremendous cost savings. Do this in Year 1, and in Year 2, your healthy voters will heartily re-elect you with (1.) Public Funding of Elections.

These 2 Acts Change the System.
Those things that could not be done, will now be done.
