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.

Reforms or false promises of reforms

Franklin D. Roosevelt's Secretary of Labor, Frances Perkins, said people need to be fed when they are hungry and they need health care when they are sick; she loathed politicians who kept saying reforms providing these human rights needed to wait. No wonder the Democrats do not want to own the outspoken liberal Frances Perkins. Democrats want to sell us promises they never intend to make good on and this is why they lost and we got stuck with Donald Trump.
