Escalating Inequality


Here are 10 economic facts that must be addressed to save the U.S. economy:

  1. The rich are getting richer, the rest of us are not;

  2. Wall Street/CEOs greed;

  3. The “too big to fail banks” are getting bigger;

  4. Students are crippled with debt;

  5. We lead the developed world in child poverty;

  6. You can’t live on the minimum wage;

  7. The tax system favors the rich;

  8. The rich buy the political system;

  9. The “American Dream” is fading away;

  10. The U.S. has the largest number of prisoners of any country in the world.

I urge you to think about these facts when deciding the candidate you select to vote for as president.
