A Message to the Green Party National Committee and Howard Switzer Regarding Monetary Reality

Recently, the Green Party of Tennessee posted this and also the first reply (timestamped 12:38 PM) to a comment by Sylvia Saadati on that post. My message below is a critical reply to the main text of this comment, excluding the final portion about AMI. It breaks that paragraph up into its component statements for purposes of a more systematic critique. My conclusion is: whether private or public, neither a Fed bank, nor the Fed’s Board of Governors,  can deny the sovereign will of Congress as it is being implemented by the Treasury. It must create the necessary reserves in the Treasury spending account, whenever Congress mandates spending requiring those reserves, and Treasury pushes the right buttons to force the Fed to create them in its spending account.

Social Security Cannot Go Broke!

It is impossible for Social Security to go broke. All it takes to see that is a ride on the subway.

Single Payer: The Left's Best Shot At Winning Again

Judging by the humiliating defeat of Trumpcare today, I don’t believe Republicans really thought they’d have the chance to repeal Obamacare. Conservative lawmakers, mostly elected on the premise of repealing the ACA, have had years to draft and perfect a plan to save our healthcare system, making them the heroes they pretended to be.

The Trump Administration is Determined to Sink the Economy, Grandma First

To all those elderly who worked hard to make a decent life for themselves and their families, many of who served our country to protect the freedoms we (at least for the time being) enjoy, the Trump administration wants to thank them for all their contributions to society by ensuring they have as short a life as possible.

We Must Demand Medicare for All

By now, it should be clear that neither the Republicans nor the Democrats care at all about you. The GOP (Greedy Old Party) has always been known to be the enemy of the regular Joe, but we had been deluded into thinking the Democrats were the Party of the People. Wrong. If you are not among the super-wealthy, they want to kill you too.

Yes, We Need to Start Taxing the Rich More: Here's Why

Many Americans have been indoctrinated by MSM to believe that having the rich pay their fair share of taxes wouldn't change anything.

7 Deadly Innocent Frauds of Economic Policy

The term ‘innocent fraud’ was introduced by Professor John Kenneth Galbraith in ‘The Economics of Innocent Fraud’, which was the last book he wrote before he died. He used the term to describe fraudulent concepts that were being sustained by the ‘conventional wisdom’ (a term he created in a previous book). The presumption of innocence by those perpetrating the frauds is characteristic of Professor Galbraith’s cynically gracious approach.
