  •   spending on the environm,ent should be mandatory (0+ / 0-)

    and at the level of what we spend in foreign aid, if not higher. since we spend about 65 billion a year on foreign aid, thn we should be spending 65-70 billion a year on conservation. making it mandatory means congress cant cut it, and doesn't get a say in it. as of right now we spend less than 20 billion on the 4 conservation minded agencies in government, and that's not enugh. i agree with most of the list. ss should have its cap be att 200K right now and monthly benefits should increase
     the estate tax should be graduated, the more possessions the higher the rate, so that the walton family cant pass down 110 billion to their heirs unmolested. 75% for anything over 10 billion.
