Republican and Democrat politicians, plus the Media brain trust, are missing the catastrophe coming from the $600-a-week Covid-19 unemployment compensation supplemental benefit for all 50 states. In the ivory tower of statistic worship and technocratic analysis, the supplement makes sense. When millions lose jobs, unemployment insurance only covers about $400 average per week. With overtime, … Continue reading Why work, when millions can earn much more staying home, collecting $600 plus average $400 state unemployment check

Michael Rubens Bloomberg has spent $211 million in self-promoting ads since November 24, including $866,000 for messages just on Saturday, Jan. 11.

Without Medicaid they would have to … Continue reading Young couple (drive two Ferraris and own a $700,000 home) charged $21 for 3-day hospital stay. Average senior pays $1,364.
You can't pay off a $300,000 student debt load with jobs in a butcher shop or unloading trucks at a big box store. Those wages won't even cover the interest due.

Yet, despite his doctorate … Continue reading American doctors refused residencies and can’t be licensed. Instead, foreign candidates are given their positions

When you recall President Donald Trump's promise of no income taxes for couples earning less than $50k, which turned out to be a measly $24k, you conclude that he made a promise he couldn't or wouldn't keep. The President's once trumpeted plan to reduce visa immigration has also gone by the big business-approved wayside.
