Americans for Tax Fairness helps you tell your Congressfolk to pass a "robust" COVID-19 relief bill. You may want to edit their email, given that our more cowardly Congressfolk are whining about the deficit, which they never do when contemplating corporate welfare handouts, but always do when contemplating serving actual bosses, the American people. But hey, we're all about solutions, too. So you can go ahead and tell them that you want $2,000 checks every month until the pandemic's been over for three months, plus enhanced unemployment benefits, plus a $15/hour minimum wage -- and that you would help pay for it by repealing the CARES Act's massive hedge fund tax cut, plus a 55% tax on corporate profits and capital gains over $1 million and a 91% tax on income over $1 million. They say liberals never ask how we're going to pay for things, so go ahead and prove them wrong.
Meanwhile, Joe Biden's been very, very busy issuing Executive Orders just to undo the damage of all of Donald Trump's Executive Orders -- but he has thus far failed to get rid of the Trumpian concentration camps full of asylum-seekers and other immigrant families. You may well find yourself hesitating at the thought, not because you want people in concentration camps, but because it takes time to fix things right. But even if we set aside our conviction that justice must be done now, I think such concerns would be misplaced -- these concentration camps are dirty and overcrowded, and that's before we get to the fact that we're still in the middle of a pandemic that shows no signs of abating; you might well conclude, then, that releasing the folks in ICE camps isn't just the right thing to do, but the pragmatic thing to do. Hence Amnesty International helps you tell President Biden to release families from ICE concentration camps immediately.
