Income disparity is a cancer in this country. Donating millions of dollars into the campaigns of politicians doesn’t entitle the upper 1% to a tax cut. It’s time to give the middle class a tax cut. The current administration consisting of millionaires and billionaires has no idea what it means to worry about meeting basic needs such as food, clothing, and shelter. They know nothing about what our lives are like in rural or impoverished areas, and they really don’t care.
The government needs to be the “safety net” that can empower its citizens to get help when needed to stand up and become a part of the fabric of this country. Equal pay for equal work needs to be the standard of this country. “Trickle-down” economics does not work and never has. The people of this District know how hard it is to make ends meet while the 1% only know how to make themselves wealthier.
