Depression and anxiety are running rampant in our country today, and a way to alleviate this is to try and relieve the debt that weighs down the average person. Joan is proposing a “Get Out of Debt Plan” that is a step toward this goal and toward trying to bridge the gap between the rich and the poor. Her idea is that if a poor/middle class person will agree to try and improve their lives for one year (stop drinking, doing drugs, smoking, gambling, etc., whatever their struggle might be), then a rich person agrees to pay off their debt up to a certain amount. In order to achieve this, the person would agree to being monitored (i.e., wear a bracelet), which puts surveillance to good use since this would mean consent is given by a person. If they complete their agreement in a year, their debt is paid and they receive a “G.O.O.D. Guy” or “G.O.O.D. Gal” certificate signed by the President (which also stands for “Get.Out.Of.Debt.”). This is a plan that would give people hope and encouragement in trying to start anew which is what they need in such difficult times as these.

Partnering with President Trump, Senator Inhofe passed the largest tax cut in 30+ years and repealed over 1,500 burdensome regulations. In contrast with Obama’s job-killing regulations, the Trump-Inhofe economy created high-paying jobs for Oklahomans, brought the unemployment rate down to historic lows, and lifted millions of people off of food stamps and government welfare. COVID-19 has dealt our nation a major blow, but we will conquer this virus. When we do, U.S. jobs will come roaring back due to the strength of the economy we’ve built.
