What we need is a "21st Century Full Employment Act for Peace and Prosperity" which would make it a mandatory requirement that the president and Congress attain and maintain full employment.

The "Financial Choice Act."

While the media has been bombarding us with all kinds of bullshit, the U.S. House passed the the Republican "Financial Choice Act": https://www.congress.gov/bill/115th-congress/house-bill/10


This is an attack on the majority of the American people... especially an attack on worker's pensions.


Now the Senate has to go along... what will we do?


I find it strange no one has anything to say about this even though this legislation places every single union pension fund pension fund, all pension funds of any kind and individual pension funds in jeopardy.


And, it allows Wall Street "financial advisers" under the guise of providing financial advice to steal every single small investor blind.


And there are no comments about this?



This is about giving Wall Street parasites the right to rob working people they have already exploited.


This is a step towards privatizing Social Security.


Already, workers who have been forced into taking "buyouts" in return for "voluntarily" giving up their jobs have been swindled out of their money by these Wall Street "financial advisers."


Working people don't understand the complexities of the capitalist free market when it comes to the machinations of stock exchanges, "investing"... and the "Financial Choice Act" will enable the parasitical Wall Street vultures to unethically pick the pockets of working people without fear of prosecution--- legalized robbery and theft.
