Grant Conditional Residency to any immigrant who starts or purchases a business within 1 year of the grant. Period. Waive all grounds of inadmissibility other than INA § 212(d)(14) (Nazis, Persecutors, major crimes, and terrorists). Immigrants start businesses at rates higher than native-born.

Institute a basic stipend/check for every citizen of the US to ensure no one lives in poverty. Inflation has stolen everything affordable and has become bankster usury that goes in the elites pockets. Along these same lines, End corporate welfare! No one should have to be on food stamps working a full time job. What we are paying in food stamps ends up in the corporations bottom line and the elites pockets and not in the pockets of the citizens where it belongs.
Public funding of election campaigns--something similar to the British system, with strictly enforced caps on private funds raised, would return government to the people. It would do an end run around Citizens United. Establish a national initiative process, similar to the initiative process that is legal in 24 states, to give the people a voice in making laws that Congress would never pass because they're not in their best interests, such as limiting Congressional benefits and pay,
This is more of a comment on the idea of basic housing for the homeless. In the state of TN we have homeless shelters. There, the homeless have their needs met for food, clothing, and a warm place to stay, It would be great if every homeless person in this country could have a private shelter, but there is no way this could be paid for. We need to keep trying to find a way to help educate and find jobs for the homeless, so that they can get off the streets and have a meaningful life!
Eliminate tax returns and filing by changing the tax laws and enforcing a 10% accross the board tax for everyone, to be collected by the employer. This would include all Corporations income. If a working person is making less than poverty level, no taxes are to be paid. NO tax returns or deductions. No evasive tax laws. Everyone pays the same pure and simple. Corporations that have their bank accounts out of Country are still required to pay the 10%.
President Obama and the Progressive Democrats should agree with the Republicans about the U.S. Government not having enough money in the budget. Then by executive order declare a fiscal emergency and immediately tax everyone making more than $500,000 / yr at a 90% tax rate until the debt is paid off.
Government should help colleges find part-time jobs for students who would otherwise be unable to attend college due to the high cost now for tuitions. Too many students are forced to borrow money, which puts them in deep debt after graduation, and are often unable to make payments because they cannot find work.
