If you haven’t noticed, America’s 99% have gotten crushed over the past few decades.
What most families used to be able to achieve on one typical salary - owning a home and a car or two, putting the kids through college, and saving for retirement - can’t be done today even on two salaries! And while most Americans struggle, the wealthiest Americans grow richer and richer, year after year.
The rich get more, the rest of us less.
Jackpine Radicals is dedicated to promoting ideas and actions that will improve economic and social fairness in our country, and our world. That includes discussion and implementation of policies that work for all of us, and candidates for political office who favor these good policies. Broadly speaking, these are the types of policies implemented by 'Traditional' Democrats from the early 1930s until the mid 1970s, a period where the typical American's prosperity grew year after year.
