WASHINGTON - Tired of politicians working primarily on behalf of big corporations and the wealthy, families, workers and supporters are rising up across the country today Wednesday, March 11, to reclaim government and demand that elected officials put people and the planet before profits and polluters.
How did the action go? I’m curious to hear how today’s participants framed “putting people first.” Which people? Like lib media, was the discussion essentially limited to the middle class and people of color? I’m interested because the US has a very serious poverty crisis, and I noticed years ago that those who write lib media seem either unaware of it, or just confused about what real poverty is. How serious is this issue? Consider the consequences. The overall quality of life in the US was rated at #1 when Reagan was first elected, launching the long campaign against our poor. By the time Obama was elected, this had already plunged to #43, as a result of policies chosen/supported by our middle class.
