Biden’s ToDo List

I am disappointed by the apparent state of the upcoming US Senate but Biden/Harris seem to have won the White House. They are going to need a serious To Do list:

  • Choose new Attorney General who will prosecute Trump Inc and appoint a special prosecutor on Day One. There is enough evidence of obstruction of justice in the Mueller Report to obtain an arrest warrant and the special prosecutor should be able to get all of the White House’s records and Trump’s financial records including IRS.
  • Invite the Gang of Eight in for a meeting to fast-track COVID-19 response plan, a declaration of limited war with Russia including kicking Russia out of Ukraine and Syria, bombing Russia’s cyber-warfare capability, bridges to Ukraine, and the Black Sea port held by Russia in Crimea, a blockade of all travel to/from Russia including surface, air and military vessels and planes (give them 24h to set course to Russia or be attacked), and a plan to organize the world to relieve Syria of the Assad regime and repatriate refugees.
  • Set up czars/czarinas to develop a detailed plan for universal medical care insurance not including a hodge-podge of insurance companies with multiple plans for coverage, to develop a coherent response to Global Warming including development of renewable energy, heavy promotion of EVs, retraining of fossil-fuel workers for manufacture, installation and maintenance of renewable energy infrastructure, to develop a coherent response to failing infrastructure all over USA, to sort through Trump’s crazy list of executive orders keeping/improving anything useful and undoing everything else, to develop a plan to immediately grant citizenship to all Dreamers who are not dangerous criminals and to overhaul immigration/refugees response ASAP,  to develop a plan to overhaul US education from top to bottom including massive investment in teachers, schools, curricula, especially science and mathematics education and to develop a plan to restore social order in USA including education about stupid conspiracy theories and propaganda, voting rights, and eliminating the Electoral College which is anachronistic and serves no purpose except to allow bizarre minority crackpots and demagogues to rule USA.
  • Revise USA’s affairs to balance the budget and pay down the debt of the government in a reasonable period of time. This means a proper tax-code and “regular order” of budgeting.
