We discuss the suit that Texas Atty General Ken Paxton has filed to negate the vote in Pennsylvania, Wisconsin, and other battleground states, on behalf of Trump. 18 red states have joined the suit, aiming at the Supreme Court.
There is a ‘Texas strike force’ in Georgia, working on the Senate race. These workers are in Georgia to get out the vote for the Republican candidates.
We also have a discussion of how economic tools can be used to help small businesses who have been more affected by shutdowns due to Covid. One suggestion is to treat the shutdowns as a form of ‘eminent domain’ takings. That is, when government requires a shutdown, businesses should be compensated, as if a physical asset were being taken. Similar to the European models, this would help small businesses stay viable, and the employees could benefit by a continuation of pay.
2. Bill Curry, progressive commentator.
We talk about the new discussions about Hunter Biden’s announced the examination that his taxes were being reviewed by the IRS.
We also spoke about the necessity for reforming government. Many issues are problematic. One is the ‘revolving door’ problem of government employees coming from industries that they end up supposedly overseeing.
We discussed the problem of health care, particularly for-profit insurers, and big pharma.
The need for transparency continues.
