Joyce discusses her reaction to the San Jose, California, shooting and what it must mean for all of us moving forward.

Joyce discusses filling the gap between President Biden’s vision of what the American economy can become in the next decade and what a plan to achieve that vision would look like. Making multi-trillion dollar spending decisions without a concrete, step-by-step plan to spend that money wisely – is spending this country cannot afford.

Joyce discusses some simple, post-partisan steps Congress could take to insure that voters get to chose their representatives rather than representatives choosing them. To get the country moving we need new members, new thinking, more future focused.

Joyce commiserates about the hazards of being a strong woman surrounded by a bunch of intimidated men with a couple of self-centered conniving women thrown in. In both business and politics – it is better to be respected than loved.

 

President Biden’s “State of the Union” Address to an limited Congressional audience drew only 28.6 million viewers across all television channels.  Ratings that low require a new approach for future addresses —  focusing on delivering information directly to the American people – engaging them to engage with members of Congress.

Joyce compares the Biden Infrastructure Plan to the GOP Infrastructure Plan – by the numbers. Surprise: there are areas of great comity. Could compromise be possible?  Oh, and how to pay for it – that’s a longer conversation – next time.

After a couple of months in federal custody, Jon Schaffer has expressed his willingness to talk about the Oath Keepers activities on January 6 (and beyond) but only if the government will put him into the Witness Protection Program. Joyce asks will his cooperation be enough to shake the majority of Americans out of their civic lethargy?

Joyce is an enthusiastic supporter of building better roads, rural broadband, better air transit systems and more good paying career-jobs. But there is a right way and a wrong way to build a 21st century American Infrastructure. Increasing debt and higher taxes without planning and debate is destined to repeat the mistakes of 2009 to 2020.

Joyce discusses clever ways that Mitch McConnell, if he wanted to, could make some small compromises to avoid giant progressive leaps over the carcass of the Senate filibuster. The American people will come to regret those leaps.

Your thoughts and prayers just make me angrier, GOP Senators. Take one or two or three tiny, tiny steps forward toward reducing the scourge of mass casualty gun violence in America. Background checks don’t hurt lawful gun owners, but they might have kept guns out of the hands of two deranged 21 year olds who murdered 18 innocent people in the last seven days.

Joyce reacts to the 200 bills in 43 state legislatures all aimed at voter suppression. The fair thing, the just thing, the right thing is to pass the John Lewis Voting Rights Act. It addresses the problem, without expanding the Federal Government. And it honors an American hero.

Joyce talks about the new social safety net entitlement programs that are buried in the fine print of the 600 page COVID Relief package.  Most of the spending has some real value – but before we make these temporary programs permanent – shouldn’t we discuss how to pay for them into the future? And how some might alter the nature of work in the USA?

Joyce makes the comparison between business and politics – if the consumer can’t trust the producer – the consumer doesn’t buy the product (i.e. candidate).

Joyce talks about the importance of rebuilding trust with the American people and among their elected representatives. Joe Biden is risking establishing that trust with proposals for a $15 minimum wage and immigration reform on his first full day in office – proposals he knows will go nowhere.
