We must focus on the interests of the hard-working citizens of this country, stop the giveaways to the wealthy and the special interests and instead emphasize wage fairness for women and protecting the innocent children who represent our future.
We must fight for balance and fairness. The lack of real tax cuts for the middle class and the subsidies given to Wall Street is just plain wrong. The Carried Interest is an example of a lie by Republicans and President Trump to help special interest hedge funds get rich.
The strength of our economy depends on the working people of America and the market they represent. Lasting prosperity cannot be achieved if wage earners and families are impoverished, and we should seek the ways and means to assure proper education, training and opportunity to participate in a growing economy, as well as a fair wage and a fair tax treatment.
We must not ignore our greatest generation that now depends on us for support and care. The senior citizens of our community have been asked to tighten their belts as the Federal Government allows Wall Street and big business to make record profits and reduce their tax burden. Recent annual Social Security cost-of-living adjustments have been below even the modest inflation rate we’ve been experiencing, and that needs to change.
It is unconscionable that many Republicans continue to defend the president’s alienating and crude statements while he visits another of his properties and plays a round of golf. We must restore dignity and decorum to our discourse in Washington. George Washington wrote at length of the obligation of the president to maintain the dignity of the office. Mr. Trump has made a mockery of this revered principle.
