RENAME THE FEDERAL RESERVE BANK. 1) IT IS NOT A FEDERAL AGENCY! it'S a private banking enterprise that lends money to the government for profit.. 2)What reserve? None of their profits belong to the government. 3) The illusion of it being a government agency is supported by Presidential "appointment" of their recommended Fed head. 4) It is comprised of regional banking systems to which local banks (all private) belong. 5) It is part and parcel of Wall St. corruption!
Create a government bank which will make small loans to build up credit for those without and issue debit cards to be used instead of payday loans and check cashing establishments. The loans would be for say $300 which would go into a savings account (and could not be withdrawn for a year) and the monthly repayment of $25 would help people gain a credit rating. The debit cards would be refilled with paychecks eliminating the high fees etc of payday loans and check cashing.
Campaign to make products and buy products made in America. Tax breaks to consumers and to companies for products bought and made in America. The purpose of this would be to get corporations to bring jobs back to America and reward consumers for buying American. It's a win for workers, consumers and companies!
Institute harsher penalties for corporations and individuals who employ illegal immigrants, while making it easier for unskilled workers to receive temporary work visas. This should increase tax revenues by allowing us to collect income taxes on salaries currently paid under the table, level the playing field for American workers by forcing foreign workers to be paid minimum wage, and reduce exploitation of foreign workers in slavery-like conditions.
Reset the priorities of the private sector so the economy serves people as well as businesses. Require the private sector to pay for all aspects of the public safety net at premium rates, proportionate to the number and wages of their employees. End the Wal-Mart subsidy. This should motivate businesses to produce jobs and provide living wages to reduce the safety net expense.
Tie corporate executive pay to their employee pay and limit their complete compensation package to not exceed a (very generous) 100-to-1 ratio of their lowest paid employee / contractor (part-time or full-time.) If the executives want a pay increase, they get one by increasing the wages of their workers.
