Are we better off? I think not.
In the Sunday, Sept. 29 edition, there was an article that said U.S. inequality has grown. How much? An Associated Press photo showed “Terry” at his tent in a homeless encampment in St. Louis. We have that in Frederick, and we need to do even more.
This week on television, AARP shows a retired police officer needing a $3,000 prescription. What has the federal government done to ease prescription costs?
Did you know that there are three billionaires that have more wealth than the bottom half of earners in our country.
There are many multimillion-dollar corporations that pay no taxes. Imagine, citizens in Frederick each pay more in taxes than many big businesses.
The CEO of Amazon makes $1 million an hour and is cutting health benefits to 2,000 employees; and the CEO of General Motors, who made $20 million last year, can’t see giving the UAW a raise. I mean a raise, really now.
