Dear Congress –
A little over one year ago, in early January 2013, you were speaking about progressive action to improve the economy and reduce the national debt.
Fourteen months have passed, and little, if anything, has changed.
You do not have any type of a credible economic plan to help restore ‘financial health’ to American families and main street America, reduce citizen dependence on government – and improve the prospects for controlling the national debt.
According to a January 2014 RealtyTrac report, “Total foreclosure filings for 2013, including notices of default, scheduled auctions and bank repossessions, were reported on 1.36 million properties…”
While those numbers have improved from the immediately preceding down years, “one in every 96 homes” reported “at least one foreclosure filing in 2013.,.“
“…The foreclosure threat continues to hang over the heads of many homeowners. In December, 9.3 million properties, or 19% of all homes were reported to be ‘deeply underwater,’ meaning borrowers owed at least 25% more on their mortgage than their homes were worth.”
Additional recent headlines: “More than 11 million Americans spend half their income on rent” “Nearly Half of America Lives Paycheck to Paycheck” “Real Disposable Income Plummets Most in 40 Years” “1.4 Million Jobless Officially Get the Emergency Claims Ax” “Record 20% of Households on Food Stamps in ’13” Wall Street Advisor: Actual Unemployment is 37.2%…
Note the current fruit of your ‘status quo’ policies: Sluggish economy Rising poverty Record high levels of citizen dependence on government Rising national debt levels
Your stunted, conventional thinking in addressing our economic crisis is inexcusable… and the results are utterly pathetic.
Here is an economic plan for your consideration. It is the only true economic acceleration plan in America today:
The Leviticus 25 Plan 2014 – The $64,000 Solution December 2013 – Updated version: The Leviticus 25 Plan – An Economic Acceleration Plan for America 2014 (289)
The Leviticus 25 Plan is a dynamic economic initiative providing direct liquidity benefits for American families, while at the same time scaling back the role of government in managing and controlling the affairs of citizens. It is a comprehensive plan with long-term economic and social benefits for citizens and government.
The inspiration for this plan is based upon Biblical principles set forth in the Book of Leviticus, principles tendering direct economic liberties to the people – a principle inscribed on the very Liberty Bell which declared the United States to be a free and independent nation.
