I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality. - MLK
I think it's best to have the vast majority of the economy run by capitalist laws and ideals with just a very small amount of socialist regulations. For instance, rampant capitalism leads to monopolies and workers being treated like dirt. We need a very small amount of socialist regulation to have a capitalist economy that is good for the nation.
The removal of Student loans from private banks, and putting the control of those student loans under the Department of Education.
Did I get that right?
“I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on what’s being proposed here, he’d agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute.” - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.
The government did not take over health care by any stretch of the imagination. That's ridiculous.
And regulation is regulation, but how would you define regulation that prevents monopolies or increases worker wages/treatment? It may not be socialist in the strictest sense, but it certainly isn't raw capitalism.
