Today’s podcast focuses on a recent survey conducted by NPR, the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, and the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health. The focus of the poll was centered around the economic, social, and health fallout of the pandemic. The results were, “much, much, much worse than” what some directors of the poll were predicting. When taking into account the trillions of dollars thrown into the system with the Nobody CARES Act, the survey architects thought that the results would not have been this bad at this stage – the survey was conducted from 1 July to 3 August. The survey also focuses on the four largest cities within the United States – New York City, Los Angeles, Chicago, and Houston. Truly heartbreaking and devastating data exists throughout, such as many households already going through their savings, and showing further evidence as to how many households around the country did not have any savings to begin with even prior to the pandemic. Further concerns expressed by respondents were that of delaying medical care and procedures – some of which being classified as major. This is likely going to have long-term effects on the country as well, since many people were unable to see a doctor or had to delay procedures due to the concerns related to the pandemic. And despite the city, some hospitals were simply overcrowded. Still yet, with many schools still not open or partially open, leaves families and households with the additional responsibility of playing teacher and/or assisting their children at home. Many households are experiencing added pressure and stress due to this reality. What is also disconcerting is the finding in the survey that illustrates how in Los Angeles, many families do not have the high-speed internet they need so their children can attend online classes – or if they should have an internet connection at all. This is but a sample of the overall survey and needless to say, this is not a pretty picture.

These are the very issues that we have been discussing since early 2019 – well before the onset of any pandemic. These were the similar stats that were telling us that a significant portion of the country was living paycheck-to-paycheck; and had minimal savings if any, and still had various debts to payoff. This was all a disaster in and of itself and in the making. This system of corruption, abuse, nepotism, excessive debts, excessive taxation, over-regulation, and banana republic money printing is unsustainable and is eating itself alive. All of this is readily apparent and unfolding right in front of our faces. These realities for millions if not billions of people around the planet, are the direct and indirect costs associated with this system that has been adopted and which the powers that be are doing everything they can to sustain it – this must stop. We have the blueprint to correct this – the Constitution of the United States of America and free-market capitalism.
