Current economy: unsustainable, unreasonable, unfair

Mind those teeth...

Mind those teeth…

To paraphrase: It is hard to drain the swamp when you are up to your waist in alligators. Much of what we try to address will not in the end be successful unless we deal with root causes. We need to beat off the alligators but this will never end unless we drain the swamp.

Income and wealth disparities have been growing at an alarming rate. Many, including some in Congress, speak out against food stamps and other assistance for the poor (Cory Gardner just voted to discontinue funding food stamps). If workers were paid a living wage, wages were not routinely stolen from workers and corporations would not trim costs by cutting workers, expecting remaining salaried workers to make up the slack, while paying hugely inappropriate salaries and bonuses to top management and board members, there would be less need for assistance.

Eventually, the huge and increasing disparity in earnings and wealth will come back to bite the corporations. Low pay results in less purchasing power for many millions. This reduces sales tax collection, also hurting local governments. Low pay leads to poverty and homelessness. It leads to discouraged portions of the populations. Unemployment among the young leads to crime.

The same people who voted down food stamps and other food assistance while funding large agriculture support tax breaks to big oil at a time when big oil is making incredible profits, while denying small incremental financial support for renewable energy, also brought us Citizens United. The same party continues, in the face of Supreme Court rulings to the contrary, with attempts to make it less likely that minorities, the elderly and some rural citizens will be able to vote (Scott Gessler continues to mislead us on the number of non-citizens voting while proposing to make it more difficult for thousands of citizens to vote.)

The Republican Party should be just as worried as the Democrat Party about Citizens United. Recently the Chinese government offered to buy a large U.S. food processing company. The press talks about worries that the Chinese will reduce food safety. The real concern is that as an owner of a U.S. corporation, the Chinese government will be able to support candidates of their choosing and influence elections and thus laws without having to disclose their hand in this misguided gift from the Bush court.

Historically the robber barons, mining companies, large manufactures, etc., mistreated employees and developed monopolies. Thanks to unions and an informed public, the worst of these abuses were stopped. Unfortunately, income and wage disparity has become a huge crisis. The very wealthy control too much of the wealth and thus power. Greed runs rampant. Every effort seems to be made to receive bigger and bigger portions of the pie at the expense of the many, first the poor and now the middle class. Even athletes and other entertainers fight for obscene salaries while educators, law enforcement and medical professions fall back in real buying power.

Gone are the days when a single salary could provide a comfortable lifestyle. It is not a bad thing that talented people can make more than an average earning, but when taken to an extreme this is not in the interest of collective society. Very high salaries come at the expense of poorly paid workers, workers who need two jobs even with a working spouse to make ends meet.

Too much money from relatively few sources influences elections in a way that defeats the concept of one person one vote. Politicians are frequently unduly influenced by large contributors and special interests group such as big oil, pharmaceuticals and the NRA. These groups spend huge amounts on lobbyists. We have legislators in Washington, D.C., who fight for weapons that the military says its doesn’t need and doesn’t want. We allow pharmaceutical companies to practice “Pay for Delay,” whereby they pay other companies to not produce and sell generics at a lower price. We pay, insurance companies pay and Medicare pays more. This also goes against the basic tenants of patent law.

This is not about a liberal agenda. This is about a better America. It is about living up to our values. It is about long-term sustainability of our economic system. Look around at the unrest in other countries. While there are several reasons for unrest, a good deal of the energy comes from disparity in wealth that leaves many with bare subsistence and little hope for anything better for them or their children.

Cory Gardner’s dismal record

Cory Gardner 2011 - photo by M. Douglas Wray

Cory Gardner gets $211/hr to ignore his Democratic constituents.

At a 4th Congressional District candidate forum, Cory Gardner bragged that he could compromise with Democrats and pointed to one instance of not voting lock-step with Republicans. One report said he voted the party line 93 percent of the time. I couldn’t verify that but I know this: Cory kneels at Grover Norquist’s “No Tax Increase” throne, precluding any meaningful budget compromise. Last year, tea party fanatics, led by Michele Bachmann, worked furiously to drive us into default over the debt increase. Cory voted with them until it was too late to salvage our credit rating.

He voted every time, 33, to deny health care to the poor and unemployed while enjoying his lush government plan. He voted twice for the Ryan budget to destroy Medicare with vouchers and “cut, cap and balance,” which is Ryan on steroids.

He voted down every attempt to reduce corporate welfare, especially oil’s $4 billion subsidy, where he gets much of his money. At the same time he voted for every attempt to cut safety net funding for the disabled, poor and elderly.

He voted for every bill to restrict aid for women’s health, such as birth control and preventative tests. He also voted for numerous anti-abortion bills, including one that would authorize hospital emergency rooms to refuse treatment for women suffering from abortions.

His voting record says he is much like the guy from Indiana who said his idea of compromise was for Democrats to accept all Republican ideas.

For this we pay Cory $174,000 a year plus perks, including a $21,000 car. He gets a week off for every two weeks worked. So far we have paid him $304,500 for 259 days in session. That comes to $1,175/day or $211/hour. What has he done for regular people? Not much.

Cory Gardner, getting asked the tough questsions

On a roll.  Or so he thought.  His script was down tight.  Celebrate the free market even though it’s far from free.  The deck is stacked for the 1% and I’ll bet he damned well knows that.  The house always wins.   But, hey, as long as you’ve got gullible people who can’t find their rear end with both hands, it works.

Lots of old fogies, as my parents used to describe them.  Not because they were old, but because they lacked that which the “conservatives” think they have – common sense.

How many lifetimes will it take for some of these people to grasp the fact that they are never going to be part of the 1%.  The 1% doesn’t want them.  In fact, they’d be more than happy to see the number be half a percent or smaller.

With the help of wordsmiths like Frank Luntz and a year of practice, one of the 1%’s water carriers has got that political “pivoting” maneuver down pretty well.  But someone’s always going to show up with that question, the one not expected, the one that wasn’t included in the script.  And then the guy would rather run for the door – but that would be way too humiliating.  So what to do, blabber a little and quickly, and then look the other way, call on someone else, and be very glad that the scheduled hour is almost over.

Here’s the question:

There is a 501c4 that is rabidly anti-environment and places property rights ahead of all other rights.  This organization inserted itself into Longmont’s municipal elections in 2009 and again in 2011.  It began in Montana and the Montana Political Practices Commission described the campaign practices as raising “the specter of corruption.”  There was testimony that the organization even accepts money from outside the United States.  Recently the Montana Supreme Court  in its ruling against Western Tradition Partnership, now known as American Tradition Partnership, said, “We take note that Western Tradition appears to be engaged in a multi-front attack on both contribution restrictions and the transparency that accompanies campaign disclosure requirements.”  Mr. Gardner, you have accepted campaign assistance from this corrupt organization.  Will you renounce American Tradition Partnership, its policies and its political practices?  Yes or No

Here’s the answer:

I don’t know.  I can’t give you a yes or no because I don’t know the organization’s contribution.  I don’t know if they did, when they did it, so I don’t know what you’re talking about.  So there’s lots of different opinions in this room and you may have a different opinion on the group than someone else in the room.

Now that might have worked, but there was a little problem with evidence that was raised high for all in the room to see.

“Cory Gardner has pledged 100% support for Western Tradition Partnership’s agenda…”

“With jobs fleeing Colorado and your prosperity in danger, you need to know where the candidates for Congress stand.”

 

And Mr. Know Nothing from a Do Nothing Congress controlled by a Know Nothing Party verifies it:

 

“I don’t know…I don’t know the organization’s contribution…

I don’t know what you’re talking about.”

 

Hey, but who and what ya gonna believe?  Your lyin’ eyes.  The evidence?  Or Colorado Congressional District #4 Representative Cory “I don’t know what you’re talking about” Gardner?

Sorry, Cory.  The headlights gotcha.

Cory Gardner and friends cause “dust up”

In his zeal to hamstring the Environmental Protection Agency, Cory Gardner (R), Longmont’s congressional representative, created a dust-up over non-existent regulation of farm dust by the EPA.

In spite of EPA assurances that it had no plans for such regulation, the House went ahead with the vote.

Representative Diane DeGette compared the vote to the House of Representatives walking “into Alice’s Wonderland.”

And if that wasn’t sufficient, Gardner appears to have jumped on the Newt Gingrich bandwagon over child labor. Gardner, also on Thursday, authored a letter asking Labor Secretary Hilda Solis to halt proposed rules that would ban children on farms from participating in a variety of activities including operating a tractor, applying pesticides and working with livestock.

I often say of Colorado’s conservatives that they have one foot in the 1950s and the other in the 19th century. If ever proof was definitive, Gardner’s desire to put kids to work on farms sure meets that test.

Cory Gardner promotes selfishness

I recently received a letter from Cory Gardner. In that letter, he assured me that my that my Medicare and Social Security benefits “will not change for you ever.”

If this was intended to reassure me, it did not do the job. What Cory Gardner is asking me and everyone over 55 to do is to be selfish, and not think of the coming generations that include our children, nieces, nephews and grandkids..

Working for the next generation is one of the ideas that made this country what it is. Those who fought in World War II did so to rid the world of a maniac and make the world a safer place. There are many such examples.

Asking us to be selfish does not seem like a good idea. Reducing the benefits of the coming generations benefits no one, except the rich who are not paying their fair share of taxes. In a recession, cash flow needs to be increased. The middle class will not be in a position to pull this country out of the recession until it is allowed to flourish. We need jobs and money to survive. All of us.

Cory Gardner’s actions do nothing to alleviate the problem. They are the actions of a young man who is following the corporate agenda. Either he is unable to resist the siren call of the corporate dollar or he is following that agenda without thought.

Rep. Gardner, read up on economics 101.

Rep. Cory Gardner has stated clearly, “I want to see spending cuts.” I wish Rep. Gardner would think about where these spending cuts are coming from. Education? Do we care about the classroom size of our children? Infrastructure? Are we planning to repair our own roads and bridges? Environment? Clean water to drink anyone? The social safety net did not get us into this fiscal house of horrors. It was wars that weren’t included in the budget and unbridled greed.

Cuts come from real people and real programs that were designed to protect citizens. Plus arguments about spending cuts aren’t adding up. Historically, cutting spending during recessionary times just makes the economy worse. (See 1937). Economists in both political parties are saying that what needs to happen is job creation, which requires spending not cutting. Once our economy is more stable reasonable cuts can and should be debated. Maintaining a rigid position in the face of contrary information is not smart. Please, Rep. Gardner, read up on economics 101. Draconian cuts now will not create jobs or put our country back on track. We need a representative who will work for the good of all the citizens in the 4th Congressional District.

Cory Gardner fights against environmental protection

Cory Gardner, anti-environment

To the delight of American industrialists and their friends in the GOP, freshman U.S. Rep. Cory Gardner (CO-District 4) appears determined to erode as much of the regulatory authority of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency as he is able.

The EPA was born during the term of Richard Nixon, based on a 1970 memorandum of the President’s Advisory Council on Executive Organization, “Federal Organization for Environmental Protection.” If the GOP was aware of the need for federal regulations on polluting industries in 1970, how much more are those regulations necessary in our resource-depleting and waste-generating consumerist culture of 2011?

The memorandum recognized that “The economic progress which we have come to expect, or even demand, has almost invariably been at some cost to the environment.” It states that “Some means must be found by which our economic and social aspirations are balanced against the finite capacity of the environment to absorb society’s wastes.”

Before Mr. Gardner goes too far in his personal tirade against the EPA, I suggest that he, and the GOP leadership, should learn what was recognized in 1970 regarding the “finite capacity of the environment to absorb society’s wastes.” His zeal against environmental regulations is not only misguided and misinformed, it is downright dangerous.

Cory Gardner’s narrow view of “freedom”

Cory Gardner’s recent guest opinion piece [in the Times-Call] displays a very narrow view of freedom. We are very fortunate in this country to have the right to vote and (mostly) free speech, as well as many other rights. We do not all have the same ability to share our views.

Free speech and equal speech are not the same things and the increasing difference is alarming. The Supreme Court ruled in the Citizens United case that money equals free speech. Now corporations can spend as much as they want to influence public opinion and elections. You and I do not have the same voice as corporations. Even stockholders have no say in what views corporations expound.

It is hard to feel completely free when comparably few people pump large sums of money into misleading advertisements to influence elections and referendums (Comcast). It would be a little bit more palatable if there wasn’t so much misinformation and mud slinging in paid political advertisements.

These same forces have resulted in the average CEO’s wages increasing by 20 percent over the last year to over $10 million per year and as high as $85 million while the average wage of the middle class increased by about 0.5 percent. The same forces have resulted in tax loopholes for corporations.

Corporations, banks, and Wall Street have the freedom to make some very bad decisions. If these only hurt them, that would be one thing, but their behaviors have badly hurt almost everyone but their executives who supported the bad decisions.

It is hard to feel free when you have been unemployed for a long time. Corporations that are hoarding over 2 trillion dollars are at the same time paying enormous salaries and bonuses to top executives rather than investing in jobs. Do they not understand that in the long run, they need unemployment to shrink?

It is hard to feel completely free when it is increasingly difficult to support your family and provide adequate access to health care. Too many people can not access health care even though they work two or more jobs. It is increasingly hard to feel totally free when you or a family member is seriously ill and you can not get the health care you need.

Mr. Gardner’s support of reform to Medicare addresses a real problem. Much of our health care dollars go to insurance companies that all too often deny coverage. He supports giving money to individuals to buy health care insurance rather than the current system. Who will benefit from a plan that provides future Medicare recipients money to enrich health insurance companies?

If you were brought to this country as an infant or small child without proper paper work, it is hard to feel free when as you get older you can not get a driver’s license, can not work legally, and can not afford college. It is hard to feel free when at anytime a family member can be deported at any time. It is hard to feel free when a parent or spouse is in detention and ICE makes if difficult to find out where that person is. It is hard to feel free when parents are taken at public celebrations such as the Strawberry festival in western Colorado.

It is hard to feel free when you come to the US on a H2A visa to do work in the farm fields, landscape industry, etc. and can only work for one employer. Too often some employers mistreat visa holders, with hold pay, and then tell the worker that if they complain that will call Homeland Security and have them sent home.

Farmers depend on labor to harvest their crops. Even in this economy they can not get US citizens and other documented workers to do this back breaking work. In Georgia the recent anti immigrant laws have deprived farmers of over 20,000 needed workers and as a result they will not be able to harvest all their crops. How free do these farmers feel?

We need to address these issues for the good of all. In the mean time we need to enjoy the freedoms that we do have, such as the freedom of religion separated from government at all levels, freedom to associate with whom we wish, freedom to work for the changes we want while working to protect those things that we cherish.

These views are entirely my own and not those of any agency or group to which I belong.

Cory Gardner confronted with unexpected town hall meeting

Representative Cory Gardner tried to sidestep much of his Longmont constituency when he scheduled time with the Longmont Tea Party on Wednesday, June 8th. He hadn’t counted on two dozen progressive protesters from Longmont and Eyes on Congress.

Arriving early, those who strongly disagree with Gardner’s wholehearted endorsement of the Republican Ryan budget and policy plan made their feelings known to the literal “drumbeat” made by a Lyons citizen and by a variety of signs. Signs supporting Medicare as it now exists and signs rejecting the voucher/coupon privatization plan were waved at teapartiers as they arrived at the American Legion in Longmont. As he exited his “chauffeured” SUV, Gardner tried unsuccessfully to ignore the protesters as they made their presence felt.

Cory Gardner - prefers Tea Party meetings to Town Halls

Gardner was not planning any town hall events until September. However, to the Longmont 9.12 Tea Party’s credit, they agreed to allow the protesters to join their event, sans signs. Like it or not, Cory Gardner was confronted with an unexpected town hall meeting and had to face as many tough questions and statements as he did from those supporting his agenda.

Well-versed in the Republican talking points, Gardner disingenuously asserted that “the [Republican/Ryan] budget protects and preserves Medicare.” Since the better proportion of attendees were Tea Party Republicans, the audience did not rise up in protest. (Progressives respectfully kept their powder dry awaiting the Q & A to follow the presentation.) Gardner’s assertion that “If you are aged 55 and older, the program will not change.” is factually incorrect. The Affordable Care Act provided Medicare recipients with a select number of diagnostic screening procedures at no cost to the Medicare insured and it also set in place provisions for closing the prescription “donut-hole.” The Republican budget repeals these benefits. Further, Gardner did not address the ramifications for Social Security Disability recipients who have or will become eligible for Medicare regardless of age.

Gardner used the old saw about “creating competition” in the healthcare insurance marketplace because “competition lowers cost.” Anyone with or without insurance who has been paying attention to the rising cost of insurance, employer-subsidized or individual, can attest to how well that hasn’t worked. Yet Gardner and the rest of the Republicans expect us to drink their doctored punch – one more time.

He justifies his voucher plan this way. “The idea is to put you in charge of your healthcare decisions, not the government, not some bureaucrat, and to do patient-centered healthcare.”

Later, during the Q & A, Gardner was taken severely to task over this statement.

One member of the audience aptly brought up the virtually universal experience of those insured in the private marketplace. She spoke of the constant need for preapproval from insurers for medical procedures. She highlighted those “bureaucrats sitting in cubicles somewhere in corporate headquarters who are only concerned with the bottom line.”

Expanding on this, Kaye Fissinger challenged Gardner saying, “You have said in your opening remarks referencing what this lady said about bureaucrats making decisions and you are attributing that to Medicare. I have Medicare and I’m also a cancer survivor. I am here today because of an excellent medical team and Medicare. I did not have to get permission from anybody for any of the diagnostic procedures I needed. I did not have to get permission from anybody for the procedures to determine what physical condition I was in before I had major surgery. And I did not have to get permission from anybody for the treatments I needed, be they surgery, radiation or chemotherapy that ultimately cured me of cancer. So to suggest that the government tells you what kind of treatment you can have and what kind of treatment you can’t have is very disingenuous and I really wish that you and other members of your party would stop doing that.”

Fissinger went on to say, “Medicare does more to control costs than anything else out there. I see my statement of benefits. I know what is billed out. I know what’s allowed. And I know what the 80% is and what the 20% is. If it wasn’t for Medicare setting a limit on what physicians, hospitals and everybody else could charge, we would have a much worse healthcare crisis in costs than we have today.”

Returning to the Republican talking point that attempts to overcome the fact that the Republican budget plan kills Medicare as we know it, Gardner asked Fissinger, Do you think we should protect and preserve Medicare for future generations?

Neither intimidated nor entrapped, Fissinger replied, Yes I do, and I think we should preserve the system we have now, not some privatized voucher coupon system.

Lest there be any doubt whatsoever about where U.S. Representative Cory Gardner stands on the healthcare issue, he emphatically said: “I do not support universal care. I do not support single payer systems.” Medicare IS a single-payer system. He never strayed far from the Republican agreed-upon obfuscation that by voting for the Republican/Ryan plan, they voted to “save Medicare.”

A likely Tea Party Republican stated that she has had Medicare for 15 years and doesn’t like it. It was unclear whether she was enrolled under original Medicare or a Medicare Advantage HMO plan administered by a private healthcare insurer. If the latter is the case, she would be justified. Those plans impose all the barriers and restrictions of other private healthcare plans. And outside of major metropolitan areas where plans DO have to compete and in places like Colorado, they are usually more costly than the Part B premium and provide no more coverage than original Medicare.

Although Medicare dominated the Q & A, it was disappointing to discover how little understanding of the procedures of government, congressional and administrative, that most in the Tea Party audience have. They appear to be driven by what they hear in outlets like Fox News and on talk radio. Those sources are notorious for inaccurate and misleading information and sometimes outright lies.

Also troubling was the expression of resentment and selfishness. Those needing food stamps and disability were criticized. Those individuals whose incomes were so low as to not require the payment of income taxes were condemned. These individuals and families still are required to pay payroll taxes, taxes that are the most regressive of almost any others that are imposed. Yet there was no condemnation of corporations evading and avoiding income taxes while making astonishing profits. And, of course, receiving raucous applause was the tired old idea of eliminating the Department of Education entirely.

Is Ryan Budget the first shot?

And lastly, Cory Gardner should be ashamed of himself for his attitude towards failure to raise the debt ceiling when it’s expected to be reached on August 2nd. Intentionally misleading his audience, he referenced that “the debt ceiling was reached a couple of weeks ago” and that “there was no economic calamity and that the sun still came up.” It was immaterial to him that Timothy Geithner, Treasury Secretary, has been juggling the books to forestall the calamity in hopes that a compromise can be reached that will allow the debt ceiling to be raised. Amazingly, Gardner framed talks with the White House as a debate over “whether or not the debt limit can be raised.”

Statements like that do not portend well. Could the Republicans be planning another episode of disaster capitalism brought about intentionally by creating a “Shock Doctrine” condition? Perhaps that is how they intend to accomplish their “revolution.” That possibility is for another article.

Rep. Cory Gardner’s anti-environment record

In three months in office, U.S. Rep. Cory Gardner has quickly positioned himself as one of the most anti-environmental members of U.S. Congress. Ignoring poll results indicating his constituents want Congress to protect the environment, Rep. Gardner keeps voting against clean air, clean water and public health protections.

Rep. Gardner voted to block the EPA’s ability to protect Americans from climate change due to greenhouse gas emissions (HR 203).

Rep. Gardner introduced a bill to fast-track oil drilling off the shores of Alaska and undercut the EPA’s ability to keep Alaska’s air clean.

Rep. Gardner voted for HR 1, a massive budget bill containing 19 amendments and riders gutting protections for clean air, clean water, wild lands and wildlife.

Longmont and all Colorado residents deserve better. Please urge Rep. Cory Gardner to stop voting against clean air, water and public health protections. Our economic recovery depends on protecting our environment and health.

An Open Letter to Congressman Cory Gardner from Councilman Sean McCoy

Dear Congressman Cory Gardner,

Longmont City Councilman Sean McCoy

I am the Longmont City Council Member representing Ward 3. As the local elected official “on the ground,” I must tell you that I am very concerned and extremely disappointed with your recent voting record.

You framed your campaign and platform around job creation and fixing the economy for all economic households in your district and throughout the country. However, you have consistently wasted time, “One-upping,” your fellow freshmen congress members, over who can cut more from the budget and in the process hurt the most needy amongst our shared constituents.

Please remember your votes have a lasting effect on our community and its people.

Specifically, what do your following “Affirmative” votes have to do with job creation?
1. Prohibiting use of federal funds for Planned Parenthood,
2. Prohibiting Federal Funding of National Public Radio, and
3. Abolishing Federal Financing of Presidential Election Campaigns.

Why have you failed to work on jobs and opportunities for the communities that you represent?

Your votes appear to be promoting a social agenda and are unconnected to the goals of economic recovery. These are not the issues of the majority of our constituents. We (my constituents and I) expect you to stop playing political games with their lives and livelihoods as well as long-established community supported programs.

Your votes to terminate the Neighborhood Stabilization Program and reduce funding the Economic Development Initiative are particularly egregious and detrimental to the City of Longmont’s efforts to provide needed services and maintain employment in our community.

In short: “Grow up.” Place the genuine needs of our constituents ahead of ideologies that drive the small and radical segments of our district, ward and nation. Holding the government hostage by avoiding compromise is wrong.

I will remind you that on a global scale, the popular uprising in Egypt wasn’t just instigated because that country had a corrupt leader. Nor was it a case of too much government. The uprising occurred because Egypt had a corrupt leader combined with too little regulation to offset the predatory practices of out-of -control capitalism. In reflection, they had too little government to protect and support the people’s needs.

Pretending to fix the national condition by reducing budgets and breaking down government so it is so ineffective, inefficient and radically smaller isn’t a rational solution for most people. Furthermore, the “Tea Party’s,” irrational mantra of the untested economic theory of an unconditional “Free Market System,” doesn’t compute to rational thinkers in this world’s most successful societies where they know emphatically and correctly, that you don’t balance budgets on the backs of their societies’ most vulnerable members while giving overt advantages to the most wealthy of those same societies.

Shame on you, Cory Gardner. Stop being so radically out of touch with the Longmont community’s priorities. I/we expect you to lead with compassion and common sense and not follow the poor examples I see in you so far and in your closely politically aligned colleagues. It is inexcusable for you to be solely responsive to the deep pockets that helped pay to get you elected. Your behavior reflects a disturbingly high level of corruption.

Your votes suggest a larger personality flaw that indicates an inability to understand, empathize and support others by showing compassion to those that are less fortunate in our country.

Finally, I expect – no, I demand – that you to drop your support of these radical “Policy riders,” because they are emphatically not the values of this community. Your efforts to reduce government spending must consider all aspects of the budget, including the Entitlement of the “Military Budget.”

Thus far, your votes and decisions cause nothing but serious harm to the American people. Your actions are far from just or in the best interest of either my Ward 3 constituents or the constituency of the 4th Congressional District

Sincerely,

Sean P. McCoy
Longmont City Council Member Ward 3
