Long story short: tell your Congressfolk to pass the Affordable Drug Manufacturing Act, the OLIGARCH Act, and the RECOUP Act. Use the tools in the upper right-hand corner of this page (or, if you're on a cellphone, the bottom of this page) to find your Congressfolk's phone numbers and/or use the email/petition tools in the following paragraphs.
Public Citizen helps you tell your Congressfolk to pass the Affordable Drug Manufacturing Act, which would give our government the power to manufacture generic drugs wherever name-brand drugs are too expensive for good Americans to afford. Specifically, the bill would create an Office of Drug Manufacturing within our Department of Health and Human Services, and would keep drug corporation lobbyists or senior executives of such corporations that’ve broken our laws out of that department; the Office would be able to manufacture any drugs for which patents have expired, if big pharma corporations can’t produce enough of them (like what happened with Ozempic last year!) or if big pharma corporations are simply charging too much for them. This would make health care cheaper, and anyone who cries SOSHULIZMZ!!!! should really stop driving our roads if they don’t want to be hypocrites.
Patriotic Millionaires helps you tell your Congressfolk to pass the OLIGARCH Act, which would establish tax rates on wealth based on median household wealth in America ($121,700 as of 2019, per our Federal Reserve), ranging from two percent on household wealth 1,000 to 10,000 times median household wealth to eight percent on household wealth 1,000,000 times median household wealth. At present, this tax would only affect folks worth over $121.7 million, and two percent of that figure would still leave those folks with a lot of money, so don’t believe the hype that it’d actually be much worse. Certainly don’t believe any slippery-slope BS that it’d eventually be 100% (a cursory examination of our history will tell you how hard it is to raise taxes on the rich). People with no arguments will say anything, but they shouldn’t win.
Finally, Take On Wall Street helps you tell your Congressfolk to pass the RECOUP Act, which would literally recoup the sales of stocks and other assets that bankster executives make right before their banks crash. This just happened with both the Silicon Valley Bank and First Republic Bank failures, so it’s not a solution in search of a problem. And don’t think of this as a punishment for things CEOs might have done; think of it as a punishment for being a bad boss. Really, you don’t have to prove that they maliciously drove their bank off the edge and cashed out before everyone else knew what was happening. I mean, that would be the way to bet! But this is a bill that would punish incompetence. Folks don’t argue they have a “right” to be incompetent if it hurts other people, do they? I guess they do. But they shouldn’t, and they certainly shouldn’t get all the say about everything.
