About this title
It's easy to see the ills or afflictions of our political system. Special interests -- global corporations, particularly -- and partisan disputes prevent electoral reforms and progress on racism, pollution, education, urban sprawl, health care, and other issues or problems. Empowering ordinary Americans politically and economically is the key to Healing Politics. "Citizen Policies" updates proposals or plans that were presented by Tom Paine and others among America's founders; that helped inspire the Progressive and Populist movements of the 1890s and 1900s; that sparked the enactment of Social Security during the Great Depression; and that passed the House of Representatives on April 16, 1970, by almost two to one, only to be defeated in the Senate Finance Committee. Advocates in the 1960s included Martin Luther King Jr., politicians from Richard Nixon to Daniel Patrick Moynihan to George McGovern, and economists Milton Friedman, James Tobin, Paul Samuelson, and John Kenneth Galbraith. Earlier versions were called 'guaranteed income,' 'basic economic security,' and 'negative income tax.'
We the People can heal our political system, and must make government and global corporations serve our needs and interests. As individuals and together, We the People can solve our problems. Healing Politics shows how.About the Author:
