THE EDRY PLATFORM
$50 BILLION ANNUALLY FOR PUBLIC
Public transportation is a necessity!
A strong public transport infrastructure will reduce US dependency on foreign
oil, reduce pollution, slow suburban sprawl, and improve the overall quality
$2.00 PER GALLON GASOLINE TAX
The taxes currently collected
on gasoline come nowhere near paying the true cost of its use! Road construction
and repair, police patrol, and environmental cleanup all should be paid
by the users of the oil. The increased tax will also reduce usage
of oil, promoting use of public transportation and reducing the cost of
our military presence in the Middle East, which is necessary to ensure
the delivery of the crude oil itself!
SINGLE-PAYER NATIONALIZED MEDICAL
It is absurd that someone's
medical care be determined by what job he or she happens to have!
Nationalized coverage for all non-elective medical care is the only way
to guarantee coverage to everyone who needs it and to control insurance
MASSIVE SIMPLIFICATION OF FEDERAL
Anyone who has ever filled out
form 1040 knows it's ridiculous. Implementation of a progressive, simple
percentage for all people who earn over the poverty level, and for all
for-profit businesses, would save billions in tax code enforcement costs
and would ensure that all pay their fair share.
