Pragmatic Idealism: What We Need From Our Public Officials – Health Care and Public Policy

We acquire generally witnessed, either from the political left, or right, a cogent bulk of pulling, and attempting to accompany policies, either to one pole, or the other. It seems, the Republican Party, was affected, about a decade ago, by the so – called, Tea Party, whose antecedent appeal, focused on beneath government, but, already in office, appears to be more, about active the party, and the all-embracing American system, to the right. The three – appellation Mayor, of New York City, who is also, one of the ten wealthiest Americans, Michael Bloomberg, generally declared, his belief, able accessible leadership, acquire to be from the middle/ center, and his policies, appeared pragmatic, prepared, and ready, While his amusing positions, were somewhat to the larboard – of – center, his bread-and-butter mindset, was conservative, and responsible. Today, however, we arise to be witnessing, in abounding layers of government, abnormally the civic stage, a amount of stagnation, and ineffectiveness, and little attack at any affairs – of – the – minds, and/ or gluttonous accepted ground, for the best interests of most. With that in mind, this commodity will attack to briefly. review, consider, and discuss, why, we need, to acquire individuals, who seek change, for the better, but do so, by gluttonous applicable options and alternatives, which are pragmatic, enough, to be astute and achievable.

1. Medical and bloom – care, and insurance: Aren’t you annoyed of this articulate battle, amid those who simply, accuse about Obamacare, but whose alternatives, are not alone far worse, but fiscally capricious and hurts those citizens, who charge it most? However, we acquire to beware, those on the so – called, left, who accumulate calling for Single Payer (Medicare – for – All), also, ignore, the political realities, as able-bodied as the fiscal/ banking challenges, and the weaknesses in the arrangement of Medicare, we anon have. Remember, humans pay into Medicare, their absolute alive lives, and, if they retire, Part B (Medical Expenses) are alone 80% – paid for! In addition, retirees (in fact, anyone over 65), acquire to pay $134 per month, and, to be covered, for the balance, acquire to acquirement co – allowance (for example, the best of the chief plans, costs a little over $300 per month). In addition, while doctors ability be accommodating to acquire these lower reimbursements, for a allocation of their patients, why would doctors (who pay ample sums for education, ambience up their offices, Malpractice Insurance, etc), acquire these lower amounts, for all their patients. Perhaps this arrangement ability work, but it acquire to be bigger – developed, based on reality, rather than abandoned address and promises!

2. Taxes: Very few humans like paying taxes, so politicians often, affiance to cut these, in adjustment to become popular! However, the Tea Affair politicians, who said they were there, to serve us, acquire emphasized accouterment a lot of of these benefits, to the wealthiest, and the corporations. Unfortunately, this, Trickle – Down Economics, has failed, whenever it’s been attempted, because it rarely works, as promised.

3. Spending: The behavior of those acknowledging President Trump, acquire alien plans, such as the tax legislation, tariffs, etc, which acquire created almanac – ambience civic deficits. The endure surplus account was in the final years of President Bill Clinton, and, although, we were warned, of the charge to be responsible, as far aback as the backward 1970′s, by President Jimmy Carter, who alleged for aught – based budgeting, the politicians acquire autonomous for populist, but capricious leadership!

Why do we charge businesslike idealism? Celebrity – for gluttonous the best, we can be, but pragmatic, to accompany it above the abandoned promises, and rhetoric, and appear reality, and improvement!


What Comes, Of America, Without Liberty And Justice, For All?

Over 240 years ago, what we now, alarm the United States of America, decided, it was essential, to action for its independence, and our Founding Fathers, attempted to actualize a nation, based on liberty, and justice, for all. Since then, there has been a war, amid the states, accepted as the Civilian War, which is remembered for abounding things, but memorable because of President Lincoln’s, Gettysburg Address, with the acclaimed sentiment, brought alternating a chargeless nation, committed to the proposition, that all men, are created equal. Our nation fought in the aboriginal and second, Apple War’s, with the declared intention, of angry for abandon and animal rights. We entered into the conflicts in Korea and Vietnam, for supposedly, agnate reasons. President Lyndon Johnson fought to accept the rights broadened, for all Americans, behindhand of race, etc, in the 1960′s, and Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr, was assassinated, for his efforts, to accompany about, true, civilian rights. Afterwards the atrocities of the agitator attacks of September 11, 2001, the backward comedian, George Carlin, warned us, if we do not assure all our freedoms, then, The terrorists win. However, in the endure few years, we accept witnessed address and vitriol, by several politicians, adopted officials, and so – called, journalists, with a polarizing, level, we accept witnessed, in generations. Yesterday, in Mississippi, the voters of that state, determined, and decided, they would accept a woman, who fabricated several, apparently, racist, anarchic comments, and what does that say, about our citizens? President Trump, whether, because of his accurate beliefs, or for some personal/ political agenda, and cocky – interest, has stoked the fears of many, pitting citizen, adjoin citizen, ethnicity/ race, adjoin ethnicity/ race, and created an atmosphere, area many, are concerned, with the attack to transform us, from apropos all our rights and freedoms/ liberties, to selectively accomplishing so, for claimed reasons, etc!

1. The Statue of Liberty: We proudly, point, to the attempt declared on the Statue of Liberty, area we proclaim, to accord us, your neediest, and oppressed, who seek freedom. In today’s world, Lady Liberty, and abounding of our Founding Fathers, and the abandon fighters, who came in afterwards generations, would apparently be ashamed, of what we are witnessing!

2. Blame and complain: President Trump continues to clear a message, blaming, abnormally immigrants, and/ or, those gluttonous asylum, for whatever, he seems to believe, his amount supporters, ability be motivated by! Instead of affable all, while demography amenable assurance accomplish and precautions, there has been a lumping together, of specific ethnicities, etc. If America fails to lead, the world, in the action for animal rights, freedoms, and liberties, our character and cause, will be lost, in the best – run!

3. The American Way: Wouldn’t we be bigger served, if the mission of Superman, seeking, truth, amends and the American Way, was actively considered, and believed in/ followed?

4. Economic/ tax policy: Historically, Trickle – Down Economics, has never worked, effectively, over the best – term! The tax reform, passed, in 2017, rather than decidedly acceptable and confined the average – class, and a lot of Americans, predominantly assisted, and benefited, the wealthiest people, and our better corporations. Shouldn’t we focus on capital animal needs, such as ecology (clean air and water), bloom care, etc, instead of, merely, the wealthiest, acceptable even, wealthier?

5. Foreign priorities: What bulletin does it say, and what are we affirming, if our President, supports a adopted nation, which we do, cogent business with, even after, our Intelligence agencies, proclaim, they committed animal rights atrocities?

Wake up, America, and angle – up, for all our freedoms and liberties, or, realize, the future, will become, far beneath free, and just! Will you demand, your accessible officials, accent these basal rights?
