Former Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper, a small businessman who opened brewpubs in Denver and across the Midwest, is unveiling his plan to boost the U.S. economy by embracing what he sees as the power of private industry.

“We can make the private sector into a stronger engine of opportunity and innovation, rather than having it continue as America’s favorite political piñata,” he will say Friday in a speech in New Hampshire.
How would it work?

Hickenlooper proposes raising the minimum wage to at least $15 an hour. He also wants to tackle college affordability by cutting the federal interest rate on all student loans to 2.5 percent. Additionally, he pledges to make community college free and “launch the biggest expansion of apprenticeships and training in American history.”
His proposal calls for creation of an “entrepreneurship tax credit” for small businesses and a “micro-enterprise tax credit” for businesses with five employees or fewer and up to $10 million in revenue. He also calls for creating incentives for startups “in rural and distressed areas,” doubling the federal earned income tax credit, taxing capital gains at the same rate as ordinary income and ending tax loopholes for “very wealthy” Americans who pass portfolios to their children.

oadband service. He would pay for it in part by a partial repeal of the tax cuts that Trump signed into law in 2017.

Hickenlooper pushes for “an expansion of open and fair trade” and stronger anti-trust enforcement.

The plan includes “universal” health care while maintaining private insurance for those satisfied with employer-provided coverage.

What have other Democrats proposed?
Elements of Hickenlooper’s plan overlap with other candidates' proposals. Several others, for example, have endorsed the idea of a $15 minimum wage.
 
Elizabeth Warren
 
Bernie Sanders

But Hickenlooper, a centrist, stands in stark contrast to candidates such as Sens. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) and Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), who are offering more dramatic proposals to achieve economic equality. Sanders, for example, has proposed a federal job guarantee.

Hickenlooper makes clear he opposes ideas like the job guarantee and a government takeover of health insurance, which Sanders and other supporters of Medicare for All have backed.

“These are certainly big ideas; they are also not good ideas,” Hickenlooper says. “They would bloat the federal government. They would massively raise taxes. They would depress economic growth. And let me assure you, in the end, they would hurt working people.”

The guy was naval intelligence deployed behind a desk in a—no pun intended—rear station of land locked Afghanistan. I doubt he ever saw a lick of live fire directed at him behind that desk.

Reminds me of my mother's cousin, Art,  who was stationed in Bermuda during WWII.  My dad, who served in Europe and North Africa, told Mom  "Art didn't serve in the war.  He was on vacation."'

Both of my fathers brothers were fighting in Europe in WWII. My dad was born to late so he was in the Navy during "Korean Conflict".   They said he was on a sea cruise!.

How John Hickenlooper would address the economy

Hickenlooper started Colorado down the road to destruction. Unfortunately, sanctuary this, legal pot that, and half the left is automatically on board, followed by the FSA (Free Sh*t Army). He could be a contender.

  • I hate nothing, not even OUR President
   I'm gonna reserve judgment till I see him in an apron and pearls jerking a chicken.

No government in the 6,000 years of modern mankind history has led its people into anything but the history books with a simple lesson, don't let this happen to you.

Professional victimhood is not about attention - it is about political, social and economic power.

I had thought Buttigieg had potential,  to approach this campaign for President with a message of optimism and a positive view of America.   But the Dems can't run that message anymore -  the role of professional grievant,  once donned, cannot easily be doffed.   The social progress made by gays in the last 20 years is unprecedented in human history, and yet the message must still be unrelieved grievance rather than appreciation at how far things have come, so fast.   And of course Buttigieg must link his "struggle" with that of the other Dem identity groups,  and claim that a "wall" of bigotry still defines their lives,  and America's.

Sorry, Pete,  I was listening but you've lost me.   I thought you might be different, but you're the same old shit.

In his case the correct term is choking a chicken
