1. Oooo, debt?
Cue the need for austerity, tax cuts for the rich and cuts to social programs.
If we can’t have secure well paying jobs. And we can’t retire or afford to educate our kids. If our kids can’t expect a good paying job after busting their butts during school…because robots and globalization. If we can’t afford to protect our drinking water, oceans or land from pollution. Why do we pay taxes? What is our government for if every decision they make benefits business and ignores the needs of workers? I can’t actually remember a ‘win’ for anyone but corporations and the wealthy since I was a kid in the 80’s. Seems like every good thing (Civil rights, workers rights, the New Deal) has just been dismantled. Am I just being too negative?
