Its about time that we take care of our own! On Nov 6 2012 Americans rejected the Conservative "Fend For Yourself" religion. In a Monetarily Sovereign Nation there is no need for a balanced budget. Actually Government does not need revenue to spend, it can collect it later as a way to give value to the currency it creates. Spending > Revenue expands the economy, Spending < Revenue contracts the economy, Spending = Revenue is irrelevant and unnecessary. Fiscal Monetary reform is an important agenda for ethical, economic, and political reasons and to undo the privatized franchise by which our economy has been based upon a debt based currency. The deficit terrorism by Fiscal Conservatives threatening austerity and even deeper privatization is based upon the Gold Standard model when dollar was backed by gold and limited, thanks to Nixon, this is no longer the case since 1971, and is thereby false, fraudulent and clearly a fear tactic based upon disinformation. When we align the nature of our economics and the capacities of modern money with the policies of governance as a socializing agenda significant changes will be possible. Based on understanding how sovereign fiat money actually is used can impact Fiscal Policy allowing the Federal government to extend funding for the construction of roads, mass transit, bridges and other "hard" infrastructure to put people back to work which would increase demand for products. This same process can be applied to social infrastructure such as national health care, education, and pensions. Further, an employer of last resort (ELR) process could be established, whereby individuals who wanted to work could be provided a living wage for advancing any number of needed projects toward building communities. Modern Monetary Theory > MMT AND A GOVERNMENT FOR THE PEOPLE | <a href="http://sco.lt/8zdEO1" rel="nofollow">http://sco.lt/8zdEO1</a>; government is not a wealth taker. It is a wealth maker. What’s more, the wealth it makes is not just its own. Generally speaking, people create much more wealth with the aid of government than they do without it. We don’t first become rich and then decide to form a government. First we form governments.  Then and only then can we become rich. Without a strong government that works for all, it is not possible to have a strong economy that works for all. They go together. This important insight is actually inscribed in the preamble of the US Constitution, where “to promote the general welfare” is listed as one of the principal purposes of our federal government, along with establishing justice, insuring domestic tranquility, defending the nation and securing the blessings of liberty."

This is the full text of Pope Francis’ special address to the World Economic Forum’s Annual Meeting in Davos, read by Cardinal Turkson.
Mahilena Dianz's insight:

Quote "I wish to emphasise the importance that the various political and economic sectors have in promoting an inclusive approach which takes into consideration the dignity of every human person and the common good. I am referring to a concern that ought to shape every political and economic decision, but which at times seems to be little more than an afterthought. Those working in these sectors have a precise responsibility towards others, particularly those who are most frail, weak and vulnerable. It is intolerable that thousands of people continue to die every day from hunger, even though substantial quantities of food are available, and often simply wasted. Likewise, we cannot but be moved by the many refugees seeking minimally dignified living conditions, who not only fail to find hospitality, but often, tragically, perish in moving from one place to another. " - Pope Francis

Unemployment benefits expired for 1.3 million long-term jobless workers on Dec. 28, with millions more imperiled by the Senate’s inability to pass an extension for emergency unemployment insurance on Tuesday. After days of backdoor negotiations, Sen. Harry Reid (D-Nev.) brought two measures to a vote Tuesday evening, hoping enough moderate Republicans would join Democrats and lend support to one of two motions aimed at extending or modifying unemployment compensation.
