Our economy is currently structured such that wealth is redistributed upwards. This has proven to be a drag on our economy over the last thirty years. A majority of economists agree on that. This is why you see democrats offering policies aimed at addressing that gross redistribution of wealth.
Clinton offered a policy idea yesterday.
Pardon me for pulling some of the meat from your post to Markle and deleting the rest. I'd like to offer some input to these points you make, Boards.
First, beyond political sides, I am for our economy continuing to grow and am not for slamming every idea because some say it is socialist or communist.
As I look back to more prosperous times - not attributing this to Dem or Repub -
the wealth was distributed upward and downward. How so, you might ask?
Joe and Judy Workerbee made a wage where, even if $25 dollars a pay period, they could place money in a savings account or save up for a small CD and receive a decent return. Or, depending on their vocation and their employer, they could but shares in the company (Walmart did this in the early years.)
We've seen the wages stay the same, taxes increase, and the power of the dollar fall. Many factors weigh in to this and if Hillary can see a way out of it - redistributing profits back to the worker - that would be great. So long as she still has a plan where corporations do what they are intended to do - increase shareholder's investment.
We have to invest in both directions to see the economy grow. If offered a minimum way job with the ability to buy shares/stock each pay period vs being paid more wages...I'd take the shares/stock.
Banks give spit on investment.
These issues, along with government being better stewards of the nation's contributions, I will listen to and decide on a candidate based on sound financial proposals.
It can't be a campaign of stick it to the rich - I won't listen. It has to be a plan that is laid out and makes good sense for the economy regardless of Democratic and Republican "social" issues.
I'll listen to all candidates in regard to these issues I've mentioned.
