Bernie Sanders 6 Point Corona Virus Plan



End the deficit myth, neoliberalism, and austerity! The deficit myth is made up so that the establishment, plutocrats, and the 1% can hoard all the wealth and resources, instead of giving some up to US THE PEOPLE.

We must educate ourselves and others so that we can stay strong in the face of establishment neoliberal garbage.

What is Modern Monetary Theory?
Modern Monetary Theory is the correct understanding of Macroeconomics.
It proves the following:
1) Taxes don’t fund government spending and
2) Deficit spending is good most of the time.

Simple Economics Facts:
Government deficit = Private sector surplus
Government debt = private sector savings
The constraint on government spending is the availability of real assets/resources in an economy, not the federal budget!

Further on the Corvid-19 crisis:it should now be understood that the corporate drive (eg Gilead) to develop/control and extract massive profit from a Corvid-19 vaccine is primarily to achieve an 'acceptable' level of containment; thus enabling the “snap back” to capitalism's 'business as usual' – austerity for the masses. The Australian neolib PM recently said as much. Once C-19 immunisation is achieved the masses of poor and desperate in the world instantly lose their bargaining power – they no longer constitute a threat to the lives of ruling class elites.Capitalism thus reigns supreme again – those who can't afford to… Read more »

So glad I found your channel. Economics can be very obscure. I thank you for making this subject more accessible. Keep the information coming.🗽

Bernie truly gets the point and has addressed this rationally from the beginning. If the economy implodes, we won't recover for decades. Propping up families is the only way to keep the economy moving. Bernie is on point here. Vote for Bernie Sanders, we need him and we need the future that his plan lays out. These initiatives will save our country. 🗽

Love ya Steve, but you might want to rethink Jimmy Dore's position. So far, the progressives have done nothing, except, to roll out all of the much needed policies you mentioned in this podcast. They look good on paper, but when does it happen? As Dore is preaching, we need to quit being nice and demand that these policies be fought for tooth and nail! Bernie needs to stop bowing to Pelosi, Schumer, Biden, and the like. Call them out!! Get this done!! When people like Bill Maher ask Bernie "how we gonna pay for this," why doesn't Bernie honestly… Read more »

P.S.
For State Assistance- Call 211 in most states and go to your State website, apply for everything whether you think you qualify or not.
For local assistance go to your City/County website or call 311.
More changes and assistance is on the way, we have to back Bernie and fight for it✊

I wish SNAP, TANF and MEDICAID, WIC numbers would be released. They are pre Clinton Welfare Reform Act of 1996 era, off the charts. New waivers to certain means testing, abbreviated processing, expediting servicing timelines have put food, money and Medical Care into thousands upon thousands of people and families lives~immediately. No E and T, no ABAWD…Bernie is one man, a Legislator, if he didn't play nice do you think withholding his one vote would mean anything? That one vote, from one man, got millions of people everything mentioned above, plus UIB expansion, rental assistance, utility assistance and more, including… Read more »

Bernie Sanders’ campaign texted me about the safety of Amazon workers in March. Jimmy Dore is trying to take credit for something Bernie was already doing and smearing him for not doing it at the same time!

Progressives can never change the Democratic Party from within including making MMT mainstream but they most certainly could change the Green Party from within and make MMT mainstream.

It seems most people have no sense of what's REALLY going on! You would think everything is the same as always the way so many on social media that I hear anyways are more concerned with what Bernie is doing wrong then trying to get us what Bernie is pushing that is RIGHT! It really seems like they care MORE about who Bernie calls his friend then they do people that are DYING, workers OUT OF WORK, and for sure I am not seeing anything from them about our planet that is dying! I am not joking! Most of the… Read more »

Would be great if Bernie actually fought for these policies instead of just campaigning for em; jimmy is going for Bernie because the man simply isn't the fighter he might once have been and is incapable of exposing the real enemies of progress in the democratic leadership.

Thanks Real Progressives guy!You mentioned how terrible it is that people are spreading lies and conspiracy theories, so I would like to recommend an excellent video to correct the record against the insane misstatements of facts on the origins of the pandemic that are nearly universal here in the US.https://youtu.be/JIMadIbCK6ANathan Rich is a damn fine debunker!The discovery of the misquote of the Lancet Medical Journal around the 14 minute mark blew ny mind how eager thry are to misrepresent facts. It is one of many examples of just how low western media is stooping (it is dishonest to claim that… Read more »

@Michael Cruz in chat: Agree with ~90% of your listed MMT illiterati, but I think Jordan Chariton and Graham Elwood should not be on that list. While both do not fully comprehend the detail of MMT and often lapse into using populist emotive neolib terms/frames, they are conscious of MMT realities and well aware that 'paygo' type fiscal constraints etc are nonsense Elwood has an MMT section on his YT playlist – Chariton has had Steve Grumbine on his show a few times, though has not followed up with macroeconomic discussion – his forte is on the ground political reporting.… Read more »

Thanks Steve – thoroughly agree – Bernie's 6 point plan is essential for the US is survive this virus / economic depression – while maintaining civil order. Michael Hudson in this recent YT vid says @ 70:50 "so the problem is I don't see any way out except violence. I'm not advocating that but I don't see I don't see any other way out otherwise you're gonna starve quietly in the dark…" This recent Australian interview with Hudson is also worth watching- @ 18:40 Hudson says "I think he [Obama] was the worst president in a century – everything he… Read more »

I'm so fed up with Dore. I canceled my patreon payments and unsubscribed. He decided the best target at this moment was Bernie Sanders. What a tool!

Power concedes nothing without a demand. It never did and it never will. Find out just what any people will quietly submit to and you have found out the exact measure of injustice and wrong which will be imposed upon them, and these will continue till they are resisted with either words or blows, or with both. The limits of tyrants are prescribed by the endurance of those whom they oppress.

This should've been in the last bill he voted for and he shouldn't be backing off Med4All in this moment. He doesn't have the fight in him to win. Jiimmy did blast Tulsi but she also isn't in the race anymore.

Lmao at Michael Cruz's "= Illiterati" rant in the live chat! It's so true. However, we need to educate these folks, not demonize them. As Joshua Khan would say, they are our allies. (And yeah, I know Joshua Kahna = Illiterati). But these folks are mainly only illiterate on monetary economics. Their hearts are in the right place. When Bernie says "the costs of not acting are greater…" people need to understand he is really talking about real costs, not money cost. But Bernie is unwilling to make the distinction, we must make it for him until a better leader… Read more »
