WESTCHESTER COUNTY, NY — February 10, 2020 – The policy of the day appears to be Medicare for All, which is really nothing different than a single-payer system.

WESTCHESTER COUNTY, NY — January 28, 2020 – We hear a lot on the campaign trail these days about programs and new investment. We also hear lip service to the meaning of democracy.

Those pushing for Trump’s impeachment argue that it is essential to preserve the integrity of American democracy. By placing his own interests, i.e. ensuring his reelection, over those of the nation — supposedly delivering aid to Ukraine — he has abused his power. And yet, one wonders if American democracy is really a democracy. The reality that nobody speaks about …

For those on the right, inequality is a nonissue because gaps between the top and the bottom only serve to incentivize those at the bottom to work harder. That is, after all, how market economies work. For those on the left, inequality only illustrates how the wealthy have stolen from the poor, for which the only real answer is punitive …

WESTCHESTER COUNTY, NY — November 27, 2019 — I’m not a big fan of the billion-dollar bailouts that we hand out to rich and powerful corporations like candy. They’re bad economics. They don’t work. They don’t enrich anyone but the corporations. But I do support moving swiftly and smartly to assure the survival of the four minor-league teams that just …
