With the nomination of former Vice President Biden in the foreground, a socialist President certainly won’t be elected this Election 2020. However, the remnants remain, and the left wing of the Democratic Party is now at rest. I can’t help recall the formula for change that appeared to be, in fact, formulating, while the far left was in flight. From a “Wealth Tax” that would remove existing wealth from persons with $50 or more, “for just a little while”, to a mainstay that would extend the lifetime of those assets until they would be gone. Or their migration of health care, a universal health care system to replace all other health care, including Medicaid, a platform that, in fact, moved to the political right, a the left wing adopted a plan for Medicaid that included restoring the plan to include benefits removed/reduced during the Obama Administration and a few extras. Interestingly, while some of the far left pondered uniformity of medical practices or two universal health care systems, one enhanced for government workers and another for the people of this country that would be of lesser quality and coverage, others flew away. Concerning education, a sketch to make available at no cost state colleges and universities with a phase out of FASFA was rightfully opposed, as the formula wouldn’t allow the smartest kids from the poorest families to achieve their full potential, AND while state colleges and universities would have a phase in to be able to grow to accommodate the enormous influx of students, this country’s private colleges and universities- a great wealth of this nation- would dwindle and be, for the most part, gone. FASFA was funded in 2019 with $314 billion made available for the year, compared with $81 billion for 2018 and slated increases or 2020, 2021 and 2022. With a college education becoming available to students at an unprecedented level, the left wing quieted. This past winter, with regard to business conduct, the left wing was in full flight, with a presentation by Senator Sanders that would install equal pay for equal work, “across the board” and thus in such a way as to mirror Russia and China’s framework, not the system found in Quebec that is may vary company to company. Senator Sanders also displayed concepts that would limit business profitability for its own sake, citing exploitation of the working class. Rent control, briefly hinted in the “Green New Deal” as the bill states as a requirement, “Providing all people of the United States with … affordable, safe, and adequate housing” and restated by left wingers as a part of the overall plan, appears to be, in part, a construct that might make the federal government our landlord, either in whole or in part, while apartment dwelling owners incomes become severely limited in profitability. How would Americans, as a whole, grow to accept these drastic and fundamental changes to our society? The Green New Deal, in its final draft that was passed by the House has that,“providing resources, training, and high-quality education, including higher education, to all people of the United States, … so that all people of the United States may be full and equal participants in the Green New Deal mobilization” In fact, the above indicates, not only a style of “re-education”, but also a mandatory aspect of it, with the phrase, “may be full and equal participants” certainly suggests the necessity of becoming educated or trained in the manner that is prescribed for the sake of one’s own equality. There are notably too few details in their platform. Concerning this one construct-- Is this a style of re-education of Americans? Will Americans have pledge to support socialism? Will Americans be told to sing songs glorifying socialism. Will Americans have to wear uniforms when attending their education classes? A preliminary socialist doctrine, the “Green New Deal”, was an all encompassing framework designed to shift this country from Democracy to Socialism, with its talons extending to business conduct, rent, education, property ownership, health care and even nature. The bill was defeated in the Senate with 57 opposed, 0 in favor and the remainder present after having passed the House. Congressman Welch voted in favor of the bill with Senator Sanders and Senator Leahy voting “Present”. This Tuesday, June 30, 2020, the Democrats in the House, led by their migratory left wing, flew again-- to a nearby bog. The Democrats presented a Climate Change Bill, referred to as a tamed version of the “Green New Deal”. The 538 page plan outlines an extension of Zero Emission standards by 20 years, looking to 2050 as an endpoint for harmful carbon dioxide for America. Ironically, a 10 year time frame was least criticized by many who opposed the Green New Deal, others cited the time length as too long. I recall Congresswoman Ocasio-Cortez stating, “We don’t have ten years.” In reference to Global Warming with Senator Sanders in her corner, Congressman Welch a strong proponent of a platform in transition and Democratic politicians in flight. Global Warming is currently at the level of crisis, a time frame extension does not address the current problem. In fact, by 2050 petroleum as a viable fuel source for transportation and heating fuel will no longer be available. The oil will run out and a decade or more prior, governments and people should certainly be prepared for its conclusion. Concerning Global Warming, Congress needs to extend the generous tax credit that brought so many to own an electric/hybrid vehicle, that, without legislative action, will end as of December 31, 2020.7.1 The US has made tremendous strides forward in combating climate change. In fact, this April and May’s record breaking worldwide temperatures occurred during an economic shutdown, here, in the US, with Russia’s temperature anomaly extending above 5 for January - May, 2020. AND- we need to get tough on China and Russia. Getting back to socialism, with it’s framers in the House and the Senate, albeit migratory and chameleon-like, have only told part of the story. I need to warn Vermonters and Americans that equality when touted as being extended by the socialist left, really isn’t equality. The author warned to beware of proponents of social and political change that tout equality where it doesn’t exist. Equal pay for equal work derogates equality as people become subject, in terms of their pay that they receive and what employers are forced to spend on wages as the construct shifts power and authority to the government, a government run by people. Proclaiming rights to include tangibles, such as, medical care, education, rent, corporate profits and wages creates, for all Americans, a society that produces goods, services, income and profits, trending towards sameness: in quantity, quality and substance as well as diversity and innovation with the government in control. Earning the same as others in wages isn’t equality, nor is having the same education. With rent control and limited business profitability, the entrepreneur becomes more similar to the wage earner. That is not equality. That patients find the same medical practices from one doctor to another isn’t equality. That the government makes itself a dispensary of necessary goods and services creating a society dependant upon government run industry - isn’t equality. Even after numerous shifts in ideology and platform, the far left may have chosen to nest at the present time. Without a majority of support from the people of the country, both Houses of Congress, or the President and future Democratic Presidential Nominee Joe Biden, socialism doesn’t appear to be at the political foreground. However, socialism ideology continues to creep its way into legislation presented by the House. The Affordable Cares Act Amendment that touts price reductions for prescriptions that will also stifle research and development of medical advancement to the degree that a longstanding and immeasurable contribution to world medical treatment would be gone. The Bill also provides further funding of US Healthcare with taxpayer dollars, concluded as a failure by both the House and the Senate- including left wing Democrats- that now insures fewer than 10 million Americans. I oppose the Affordable Cares Act Amendment. I am however, in favor of lowering prescription costs to the degree that they are competitive worldwide. How do we accomplish this task and maintain this country’s place as world leader in the advancement of medical treatment? Patent protection allows for seven years of profitability. Patent protection should be maintained. The vast majority of prescription cost is related to medications that have been with us for a long time. We can work with pharmaceutical companies to allow for profitability, market expansion with especially lower costs to insurers and patients. Keep in mind that what we have, each of us, here, in this country, allows for achievement and prosperity without limit, allows for innovation without curtailment, allows for diversity and freedom of choice of products, services, education and health care- AND provides entitlements to the underprivileged so that those less fortunate are not excluded from necessary services or from pursuing their goals or dreams. The problem is that entitlements aren’t reaching all Americans. HUD was closed to families and individuals in 2010. Medicaid/Medicare reduced coverage the same year. Food stamps and fuel assistance entitlements were reduced. Why? A shift the ideology of the Democratic Party occurred in 2009 with regard to the poor and underprivileged that sent fewer dollars to fund entitlements. That was the start of the fowls' assent. We need to further fund programs that work and have worked for decades, not let go of our Democracy.

The problem is that entitlements aren’t reaching all Americans. HUD was closed to families and individuals in 2010. Medicaid/Medicare reduced coverage the same year. Food stamps and fuel assistance entitlements were reduced. Why? A shift the ideology of the Democratic Party occurred in 2009 with regard to the poor and underprivileged that sent fewer dollars to fund entitlements. That was the start of the fowls' assent. We need to further fund programs that work and have worked for decades, not let go of our Democracy.
With the nomination of former Vice President Biden in the foreground, a socialist President certainly won’t be elected this Election 2020. However, the remnants remain, and the left wing of the Democratic Party is now at rest. I can’t help recall the formula for change that appeared to be, in fact, formulating, while the far left was in flight. From a “Wealth Tax” that would remove existing wealth from persons with $50 or more, “for just a little while”, to a mainstay that would extend the lifetime of those assets until they would be gone. Or their migration of health care, a universal health care system to replace all other health care, including Medicaid, a platform that, in fact, moved to the political right, a the left wing adopted a plan for Medicaid that included restoring the plan to include benefits removed/reduced during the Obama Administration and a few extras. Interestingly, while some of the far left pondered uniformity of medical practices or two universal health care systems, one enhanced for government workers and another for the people of this country that would be of lesser quality and coverage, others flew away. Concerning education, a sketch to make available at no cost state colleges and universities with a phase out of FASFA was rightfully opposed, as the formula wouldn’t allow the smartest kids from the poorest families to achieve their full potential, AND while state colleges and universities would have a phase in to be able to grow to accommodate the enormous influx of students, this country’s private colleges and universities- a great wealth of this nation- would dwindle and be, for the most part, gone. FASFA was funded in 2019 with $314 billion made available for the year, compared with $81 billion for 2018 and slated increases or 2020, 2021 and 2022. With a college education becoming available to students at an unprecedented level, the left wing quieted. This past winter, with regard to business conduct, the left wing was in full flight, with a presentation by Senator Sanders that would install equal pay for equal work, “across the board” and thus in such a way as to mirror Russia and China’s framework, not the system found in Quebec that is may vary company to company. Senator Sanders also displayed concepts that would limit business profitability for its own sake, citing exploitation of the working class. Rent control, briefly hinted in the “Green New Deal” as the bill states as a requirement, “Providing all people of the United States with … affordable, safe, and adequate housing” and restated by left wingers as a part of the overall plan, appears to be, in part, a construct that might make the federal government our landlord, either in whole or in part, while apartment dwelling owners incomes become severely limited in profitability. How would Americans, as a whole, grow to accept these drastic and fundamental changes to our society? The Green New Deal, in its final draft that was passed by the House has that,“providing resources, training, and high-quality education, including higher education, to all people of the United States, … so that all people of the United States may be full and equal participants in the Green New Deal mobilization” In fact, the above indicates, not only a style of “re-education”, but also a mandatory aspect of it, with the phrase, “may be full and equal participants” certainly suggests the necessity of becoming educated or trained in the manner that is prescribed for the sake of one’s own equality. There are notably too few details in their platform. Concerning this one construct-- Is this a style of re-education of Americans? Will Americans have pledge to support socialism? Will Americans be told to sing songs glorifying socialism. Will Americans have to wear uniforms when attending their education classes? A preliminary socialist doctrine, the “Green New Deal”, was an all encompassing framework designed to shift this country from Democracy to Socialism, with its talons extending to business conduct, rent, education, property ownership, health care and even nature. The bill was defeated in the Senate with 57 opposed, 0 in favor and the remainder present after having passed the House. Congressman Welch voted in favor of the bill with Senator Sanders and Senator Leahy voting “Present”. This Tuesday, June 30, 2020, the Democrats in the House, led by their migratory left wing, flew again-- to a nearby bog. The Democrats presented a Climate Change Bill, referred to as a tamed version of the “Green New Deal”. The 538 page plan outlines an extension of Zero Emission standards by 20 years, looking to 2050 as an endpoint for harmful carbon dioxide for America. Ironically, a 10 year time frame was least criticized by many who opposed the Green New Deal, others cited the time length as too long. I recall Congresswoman Ocasio-Cortez stating, “We don’t have ten years.” In reference to Global Warming with Senator Sanders in her corner, Congressman Welch a strong proponent of a platform in transition and Democratic politicians in flight. Global Warming is currently at the level of crisis, a time frame extension does not address the current problem. In fact, by 2050 petroleum as a viable fuel source for transportation and heating fuel will no longer be available. The oil will run out and a decade or more prior, governments and people should certainly be prepared for its conclusion. Concerning Global Warming, Congress needs to extend the generous tax credit that brought so many to own an electric/hybrid vehicle, that, without legislative action, will end as of December 31, 2020.7.1 The US has made tremendous strides forward in combating climate change. In fact, this April and May’s record breaking worldwide temperatures occurred during an economic shutdown, here, in the US, with Russia’s temperature anomaly extending above 5 for January - May, 2020. AND- we need to get tough on China and Russia. Getting back to socialism, with it’s framers in the House and the Senate, albeit migratory and chameleon-like, have only told part of the story. I need to warn Vermonters and Americans that equality when touted as being extended by the socialist left, really isn’t equality. The author warned to beware of proponents of social and political change that tout equality where it doesn’t exist. Equal pay for equal work derogates equality as people become subject, in terms of their pay that they receive and what employers are forced to spend on wages as the construct shifts power and authority to the government, a government run by people. Proclaiming rights to include tangibles, such as, medical care, education, rent, corporate profits and wages creates, for all Americans, a society that produces goods, services, income and profits, trending towards sameness: in quantity, quality and substance as well as diversity and innovation with the government in control. Earning the same as others in wages isn’t equality, nor is having the same education. With rent control and limited business profitability, the entrepreneur becomes more similar to the wage earner. That is not equality. That patients find the same medical practices from one doctor to another isn’t equality. That the government makes itself a dispensary of necessary goods and services creating a society dependant upon government run industry - isn’t equality. Even after numerous shifts in ideology and platform, the far left may have chosen to nest at the present time. Without a majority of support from the people of the country, both Houses of Congress, or the President and future Democratic Presidential Nominee Joe Biden, socialism doesn’t appear to be at the political foreground. However, socialism ideology continues to creep its way into legislation presented by the House. The Affordable Cares Act Amendment that touts price reductions for prescriptions that will also stifle research and development of medical advancement to the degree that a longstanding and immeasurable contribution to world medical treatment would be gone. The Bill also provides further funding of US Healthcare with taxpayer dollars, concluded as a failure by both the House and the Senate- including left wing Democrats- that now insures fewer than 10 million Americans. I oppose the Affordable Cares Act Amendment. I am however, in favor of lowering prescription costs to the degree that they are competitive worldwide. How do we accomplish this task and maintain this country’s place as world leader in the advancement of medical treatment? Patent protection allows for seven years of profitability. Patent protection should be maintained. The vast majority of prescription cost is related to medications that have been with us for a long time. We can work with pharmaceutical companies to allow for profitability, market expansion with especially lower costs to insurers and patients. Keep in mind that what we have, each of us, here, in this country, allows for achievement and prosperity without limit, allows for innovation without curtailment, allows for diversity and freedom of choice of products, services, education and health care- AND provides entitlements to the underprivileged so that those less fortunate are not excluded from necessary services or from pursuing their goals or dreams. The problem is that entitlements aren’t reaching all Americans. HUD was closed to families and individuals in 2010. Medicaid/Medicare reduced coverage the same year. Food stamps and fuel assistance entitlements were reduced. Why? A shift the ideology of the Democratic Party occurred in 2009 with regard to the poor and underprivileged that sent fewer dollars to fund entitlements. That was the start of the fowls' assent. We need to further fund programs that work and have worked for decades, not let go of our Democracy.
