What's it going to take to win in 2021 and beyond

Way back in the summer of 2019, I wrote for this group an article "What It's Going to Take to Win 2020". I thought it might be useful to look back and see what worked and didn't work based on 2020 election results as a way to look ahead.

Constitutional Corner

Orderly Transfer of Power

Since many of us may be separated from our high school history classes by a number of years, a short reference to the bedrock of our government, the Constitution, might be helpful. Incorrect and slanted material concerning the presidential election are circulating on television, talk shows, and in print. The demise of local newspapers helps to contribute to a lack of fact-checking on false or inflated material. So with the rise of the internet as a source of information, those who do not agree with the election results were set loose to challenge the results.

The Constitution sets forth the method for an orderly transfer of power after a presidential election. Article II of the Constitution details the method by which the president and vice-president are chosen. This system is a little understood process known as the Electoral College. After most presidential elections, the electoral college meets without much fanfare. Not the last one that met on January 6, day that has been seared in our memory. A final point of clarification: there is no reinstatement clause in the Constitution.

UPMC non-profit pays CEO $9.5 Million....

Three separate but related thoughts came to mind as I read the May 15, Trib article, "UPMC paid CEO $9.5M." The first was our growing income inequality and the damage it does to our society. Executive compensation of $9.5 is excessive when you consider that 50% of our work force makes less than $35000 a year. The CEO of UPMC earns 270 times the amount of income of many Americans. Such a discrepancy is difficult to justify.

The second thought was the high cost of health care. At a time when many of us are struggling to pay our health care bills, when two out of three bankruptcies are due to medical debt, paying almost $10 M a year to one person seems exorbitant. The customers using UPMC health care are paying for that oversized salary. It does make you wonder if it is time for a change in our health care system.

The third thought concerns non-profit organizations. With the recent high profile scandals around non-profits, it is time to re-think the tax structure of these organizations. When a company has great wealth, they should pay a fair share of income tax, not be exempt. After all, they use the protection and services of our government, too.
