Why the Rich Don’t Give to Charity

“Underlying our charity system—and our tax code—is the premise that individuals will make better decisions regarding social investments than will our representative government. Other developed countries have a very different arrangement, with significantly higher individual tax rates and stronger social safety nets, and significantly lower charitable-contribution rates. We have always made a virtue of individual philanthropy, and Americans tend to see our large, independent charitable sector as crucial to our country’s public spirit. There is much to admire in our approach to charity, such as the social capital that is built by individual participation and volunteerism. But our charity system is also fundamentally regressive, and works in favor of the institutions of the elite.”

Really want to meet the 5 year old with the pink bike, training wheels, and 10 lb chain to make sure motherfuckers don’t take her shit.

NYC Democratic Socialists of America

Universal single-payer healthcare is possible in New York! This #HealthcareHumpday, call Senator Kemp Hannon (R-6) at 518-455-2200 and demand support for the New York Health Act S4840.

Quality care regardless of income, citizenship, or employment. NO deductibles. NO copays. NO premiums. 98% of New Yorkers would save money. Make medical decisions based on what is best for you, not what you can afford.

Sen. Hannon is the chair of the Health Committee and controls whether this bill dies in committee. Everyone can call, even if you don’t live in his district.

Here’s a simple script: “Hello, I am calling to urge Senator Hannon to publicly support S4840 — the NY Health Act. He has the health and finances of millions of New Yorkers in his hands. We are watching this issue with his 2018 election in mind.”

Steve King on Twitter

Once again, Steve King, the human shit stain who represents my hometown, where my parents live, displaying his racism and ignorance. Serious question for people who know people who vote for Steve King: do they share his racist views, or do they just not care? And if they don’t care, what is the core issue that they are voting on that outweighs explicit, white supremacist racism? Like you care about your marginal tax rate more than basic human decency?

Also, I want to formally challenge this fucker to an English aptitude test.
