This statement couldn’t be More true than it is right now. I also believe people are beginning to realize the dysfunction in Washington has gone on long enough. They obstructed Obama’s every move simply because he was black, and despite the jobs created under his administration, those in the Rust Belt continue to suffer as their jobs continue to be outsourced. Those people suffer the greatest from an opioid addiction — something Trump promised to fix but never delivered. He said he would bring their jobs back from China, instead we are paying more for the things that we buy that are “made in China.”
In order for us to get what we need from society, we need a livable wage. A livable wage was once based upon showing up to work every day and supporting your family. It wasn’t based on any particular skill, rocket science, or advanced degree, Today it is. Yet, the cost of a college degree puts you so far in debt that you can no longer afford a house, and the American dream. I hope the stars are moving forward now that we have Democrats controlling the House, the Senate AND the presidency.
I’m looking forever hopeful that we can finally move forward from this COVID19 pandemic, and the obstructionism of Mitch McConnell’s world.
