Ex-Starbucks CEO Heckled at Book Event Over Possible Presidential Bid
Schultz, a Brooklyn-born billionaire who built Starbucks into a global brand, would be making his first run for public office if he formally throws his hat in the ring. He’s dabbled with politics and thorny social issues before. Still, his initial announcement that he’s mulling a run faced criticism on both sides, including from Democrats concerned he’d siphon votes away from their party and help get Trump re-elected.
He also criticized Democrats for pushing proposals, including free health care and education, that would drive up the deficit, saying those ideas were not realistic. At this point, a second protester screamed “health care is a human right” before being removed by security.
American does not need ANOTHER Billionaire telling the average American what they need and don't need !!!!
The first thing out of his mouth is trying to tell working poor, dire poor and the average lower middle class worker, what we need and don't need as to health care. We don't need to hear his "hard luck story" of where he came from, because many people still live in dire situations and do not have the accessibility he had, and some can't even fathom getting the accessibility he had.
Go to the Appalachia, the Mississippi Delta, or part of the dire poor sections of Texas, or Florida, Louisiana, Alabama, Tennessee, Arkansas, Kansas or in the Deeply Rural Regions of the Midwest, or the true level hard core inner city ghetto area and cry that song to the people there who do not have a network nor access to a network of any sort to gain uplift. Many don't even have schools that can help prepare them and direct them to pathway upwards.
He tells his story, from a child hood where he was born into a nation that still had "Jim Crow Ideals Spread Across the Nation, that did not concern itself with the broad variety of darker skin minority society and had no concerns for the dire poor destitute whites in society. Let alone there was such a challenge in the Era and still is today, where the minority element is still relevant when it comes to circular challenges, and these same circular challenges impact the 'dire poor whites" as well in the same areas I mentioned above of "Appalachia, the Mississippi Delta, or part of the dire poor sections of Texas, or Florida, or in the Deeply Rural Regions of the Midwest, or the true level hard core inner city ghetto ".
He has the audacity to stand against "Universal Health Care as in Medicare For All" and then to stand against "College Accessibility for All".... He's from an era gone past and has lived the wealthy life for far too much of his adult life, to try and tell people he can relate to them.
He should be thinking of 25 yrs for Now.... where a society's health and health care has to change to build and help make a more healthy society. He should be looking 50 yrs ahead when it comes to Education, as to the benefit of starting "now" to get our young people 'higher education accessibility" and if that means, 'GOING BACK TO" the system Ronald Reagan Screwed Up... Which was the State University System, and the Community College System, where the poor could get access to higher education without the cost burden being so prohibitive as it is today. He claims to hail Ronald Reagan as one of his Hero's... which states that he thinks the same as Ronald Reagan when it comes to education... which is to take away the means for the average working poor, dire poor and the working lower middle class from getting and gaining the benefits of higher education.
He's another bigoted minded type when it comes to understanding what the working poor, the dire poor and the working lower middle class truly needs. It takes 25 yrs to advance a generation... and that means if we start today... making higher education accessibility without burdening cost to our young today, not only will they move ahead they will invigorate our systems and advance it, and in the second 25 yrs... we will have a stable system where higher education is the standard norm for all Americans. Everything in society tells us, we need this advancements in having an educated population to meet with this future of the 21st Century, and beyond. By, the year 2150... if we have not reached the goal of a higher educated population, not only will learn from the damaged over the past 50 yrs were we became below 26th in the world on Education, by then we will be even lower... !!!
This man ideals on these two issue alone, tell us he needs to get out of the arena and go get him some "overpriced" Starbucks Coffee, that the Average American can't afford... and go away and play his billionaire delusions among his billionaire friends, and leave us and politics alone.
