Amazing article over on Truthout.org by Marjorie Cohn. This one I feel is a must read. This could actually help turn things around for working Americans.
The article explains how we currently have a system of “corporate socialism” benefiting only the rich and how a “democratic socialism” system would better meet the needs of the average person.
Below is a small excerpt from the article:
““In 1944, FDR proposed an economic bill of rights but died a year later and was never able to fulfill that vision. Our job, 75 years later,” Sanders said, “is to complete what Roosevelt started.”
He then set forth his vision of a 21st Century Economic Bill of Rights, which would recognize that all Americans should have:
-The right to a decent job that pays a living wage
-The right to quality health care
-The right to a complete education
-The right to affordable housing
-The right to a clean environment
-The right to a secure retirement
Please read this great article. Sanders is on the right path.
