letters and counting!
I used to have an America. I shared it with millions. We worked hard, shared the dream, and played by the rules. When we had a problem legislators sat down and negotiated a solution. Slowly it came to be less and less my America...the work lifetime I spent earning my pension wasn't enough. It was said we couldn't afford pensions; they were a mistake America made. Social Security, too, was a mistake, it was said. My grandchildren found it harder and harder to get meaningful financial aid for college. Unions were dismantled and millions of jobs went across the water...people hurried in the door of Walmart and dozens and dozens of businesses went away down on Main Street. We no longer had the shared dream. The so called "job creators" did what they pleased, and the Tea Party wore guns and preached at us from the television. A politician yelled "You Lie" at our President, and added a million dollars to his coffers in a day just for having done so. It is almost too late, but we in the Middle Class want our America back, and we are willing to work to see it happen. Kathleen Beauchot 59301
