The post-war Labour government gave us full employment; the NHS; modern welfare state; public ownership of railways, electric, gas, coal and steel; and built a million new homes. All when the country’s back was broken. Never let it be said that we can’t afford a decent society.

Americans are sick of hearing from politicians that we can’t afford clean water, upgraded infrastructure, healthcare, education, etc. I’m running for president to end regime change wars/the new cold war/arms race and redirect our country’s resources to caring for our people.

For Tulsi Gabbard, ‚wasteful‘ foreign policy at root of all other issues

“Every time your local city council member, your state representative, your member of Congress tells you there’s not enough money to make sure we have clean water, there’s not enough money to have quality health care for all … there’s just not enough money to make sure our kids have the tools they need to get the best education possible,” that’s the cost of current foreign policy, said Gabbard, who is seeking the 2020 Democratic presidential nomination.

In the 18 years since Sept. 11, 2001, taxpayers have spent $6 trillion for the War on Terror, she said. The bill continues to go up at a rate of $4 billion a month for the war in Afghanistan.

The Israeli Left Is Talking About Palestinians Only in English

Many of the burning issues that are facing Israel barely got a look-in during the election campaign that’s mercifully drawing to a close: the ballooning deficit, the rising housing prices, the climbing cost of living, the burning need to integrate the ultra-Orthodox and Arab communities into the job market, to name just a few. And then of course, the lack of any prospect for a resolution of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and an end to the occupation got nary a mention, but you knew that already because you’ve been paying attention and that has become a cliché.

And guess what: if you also believe in a free + open democratic society, where people are treated humanely and don’t die over $300 insulin or needless war, they’ll call you a communist too. Well, they don’t scare us or shake our focus. We are going to build a better world.

Boris vows to end austerity by borrowing to fund £26billion pledges and tax cuts – but faces massive Tory mutiny over his No Deal Brexit plan as he is elected Conservative leader

Supporters of the former foreign secretary told The Telegraph he would press ahead with key policies by borrowing to pay for them if that was required.

‚We are talking about a fiscal loosening of less than 1 per cent of total public spending,‘ one aide said.

‚It would do a lot to get things moving for the middle classes, to get them spending more money.‘

Foreign policy is inseparable from domestic issues because as long as we are wasting trillions of dollars on regime change wars, the new cold war & nuclear arms race, we will not have the money for infrastructure, health care, clean water, education, and other needs of our people

As president, I will end the US policy of regime change wars, work to end the new cold war/nuclear arms race, & put the trillions of $ wasted on these wars back in the pockets of the American people & needs of our communities. tulsi.to/PeaceDividend #TULSI2020 #MedicareForAll
