• Make Student Loan Payments 100% Tax Deductible!
    44 million hardworking Americans currently owe a total of $1.5 trillion in student loan debt. This is a financial crisis that, if not addressed, will be a driver of economic catastrophe for millions who are increasingly unable to pay down their student loan debt due to high interest loans. Student loan forgiveness is sorely needed, but in today’s politically divisive climate it is not likely to be passed. Americans struggling to pay off their student loan debt need some form of relief now, not later. What this proposal does is allow, at the very least, those who are repaying their student loans to have those payments deducted from their tax liability, 100%. This would provide much needed tax relief for millions of Americans who are struggling to pay down their student debt. Furthermore, this would also allow Americans with student loan debt to pay down their loans faster. The United States House of Representatives and the United States Senate should pass this measure immediately to provide economic relief to millions of Americans currently bogged down with student debt in the form of fair taxation.

  • Create a special fund for undocummented people
    It is the obligation of every Latino elected official or candidate for office to assume leadership to mobilize to create this special fund, and to prioritize it above all other matters. There are many looking for the well-being of all of us, but not many who take on the responsibility to look after our vulnerable undocumented population. Please take the initiative to move this matter, and include me in your efforts.

  • Vote Your Conscience in November
    Governor Baker needs to use his vote to elect a president who is going to be the best for Massachusetts. Governor Baker is the most popular governor in the country. He is a member of the same party as the President and he left the presidential ballot blank in 2016. The citizens of the Commonwealth want Governor Baker to vote for a president who will help the residents of our state, not tell us to do it ourselves and then outbid us.

  • No Chase Overdraft Fees during Pandemic
    People are out of work and are waiting for the Federal Government to pass legislation that would put a limited amount of money in their pockets even less for those with lower incomes. I recently overdrew my account due to extra expenses for preparing for NY/CT "Stay at home" order and having started a new job. Chase charged two overdraft fees for $68.00. In this time of unprecedented crisis Chase bank must do their part to ease the financial strain of this pandemic for their customers. They were bailed out in 2008 from taxpayers pockets and again will reap the reward of the 2+ trillion dollar stimulus package which favors banks and large corporations. Senator Porter, in a congressional hearing with Jaime Diamond showed a chart of what the average teller makes at Chase if she were a single mother with a child. With her salary she still fell $564.00 dollars short of her monthly expenses. When asked what Mr. Diamond would do about, he said "I will have to look into that". Chase bank can absorb the financial loss of suspending overdraft fees until the economy rebounds.

  • Shelter in Place in the State of Florida & Social Distancing
    The virus spreads too fast; we have many people who are 65 and over here in Florida who are vulnerable as well as it seems to be all age groups. There is lack of social distancing being enforced or mandated. We are not lazy, we are hard working Americans and tax payers. We want to work but we need to survive this first in order to get back to work! All lives matter! Many of us do not have the luxury to run to our summer cottages! It will be another New York or Italy if the governor does not support our requests. Even Collier county doctors are making this request. If too many people die, who will be able to work? Not to mention how many lives and loved ones will be lost.

  • Enact Long-term Covid-19 Pandemic Planning
    In light of the Covid-19 Pandemic, most of our leaders within the United States are providing best case scenarios of how long it will take for the virus to "wash through" the United States and the world. Although reasonable best case scenarios say it could last as short as three months within the United States (Pentagon), we could be facing many months of the virus with potential stay-at-home orders occurring across the country during that time frame. In the 1918 flu pandemic, we had an outbreak in the Spring, the Fall, and again in the Winter. We could be facing the possibility of social distancing and stay-at-home orders for over a year. Estimates of when a vaccine will be available are at approximately 18 months. We can hope for the best, but we should also expect and plan for large volumes of infected throughout the duration of that time frame, even longer. We should expect that our hospitals will become overwhelmed repeatedly with waves of outbreaks. The thought that the virus will go away within a matter of a couple of months is something that we shouldn't even be considering, let alone expecting. While we are presently verbally encouraged to stay at home, many of our institutions promote programs that regularly involve daily face-to-face interactions. Aside from also supporting essential services, we should also consider effectively planing and enacting legislation for incentives for both non-profit and private online businesses, employment and education programs. Doing this is essential for the long-term well-being of our country.

  • NY Release People Incarcerated for Technical Violations
    Inmates are in very close quarters, visits are being suspended at all State prisons, inmates have relatively inadequate healthcare, and suppliers, like Walmart, are now refusing to deliver food and care packages to inmates. This greatly reduces the ability of family members to care for their incarcerated loved ones on their own. There is a petition circulating asking the Governor to release the elderly, pregnant women, and those with a compromised immune system. We started this petition because we believe that inmates who are there for simple technical violations should be included. A technical violation is when a parolee does not meet a condition of their parole but also DOES NOT commit a crime. These are things like failing to report for a scheduled visit, missing a curfew, or failure to gain employment. Releasing inmates who are locked up for non-criminal technical violations would help reduce the load on valuable resources New York State needs now to fight this pandemic, to protect the wellbeing of inmates who cannot be released and allow these inmates to return home and care for their family members during this trying time. Ohio was the first to release inmates due to COVID-19 concerns and we know you like to lead the way on innovative solutions to challenging modern problems. Please, Governor Cuomo, release parolees who have been incarcerated for technical violations due to COVID-19 concerns.

  • Injustice And Victimization Of The Disabled In New York City
    On February 29, 2012, my husband left our home to work the swing shift on the East Side Access Tunnel Project. He had a life altering devastating accident. The man who left for work that day was not the man who came home. He was the sole earner of our household who came home to a totally disabled wife. A falsified, or fraudulent, MTA Capital Construction Incident Report was manufactured less than 24 hours after my husband’s accident. The defense team knowingly chose this incident report that benefited their position as the basis for their questions asked in depositions and the foundation of their arguments presented to the NY Supreme Court. This invented MTA Incident Report was placed into evidence in the same filing with Bennett’s statement at the time of the accident. Through the Freedom Of Information Law (FOIL) I have proven the manipulation of many facts and circumstances. I discovered the New York City Judicial System at the Supreme Court level that exists “behind closed doors” is not just accepted, it has been encouraged, insulated, and normalized to the point that duplicity is the foundation of the litigation process. We have made the decision to share, because we know that we are not alone. Please help us to bring this into the light and assist others desperately in need by signing this petition and sharing it with as many people as possible. These professionals and institutions need to fulfill their basic functions as advertised and mandated. If you have had a similar experience and would like to share please contact me on Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter under Kerry Ann Galligan Katz, NYC Injustice And Victimization Of The Disabled, or #NYCVictimInjustice. I will post short updates sharing the details of our experience on a biweekly basis. Thank you for helping to tell Governor Cuomo and Mayor DeBlasio that judicial oversight is imperative and that this will not be tolerated. No one should be trapped in a maze of privately accepted brutality and duplicity for doing the right thing and going to work.

    If the Governors of this Great Nation do not step forward and collectively move away from the criminal policymaking of the federal administration, millions and millions of Americans will die. If the Feds “reopen the economy”, our country will experience civil decay and infrastructural implosion unlike anything the average American could fathom (even with the help of movies). If our hospitals are overrun with patients, health staff will die or quit. If our health staff dies or quits, there will be no health care for any of us! The value of the dollar will fail and we will have no economy. Please save us while we still have a fighting chance.
