We as a country are following a dangerous path. By disenfranchising millions of our citizens, our democracy is in jeopardy. The economic disparity between the 2% of wealthy and the remainder of the country is higher now than it was during the Great Depression. I urge you to consider your financial situation, I’m certain that you are no better off than you were 20 years ago. Employers are paying less and the costs of living continue to rise.
It is time to begin the road to recovery. It will be a challenge with the new Republican Congress, but if we let them know that we are frustrated with the status quo. If they want to be reelected, they better fix it now. We as a nation will benefit, even the rich. We can’t spend money we don’t have.
