Great Recession eliminated middle class in U.S.
In response to a recent letter to the editor in The Morning Call from Charles Schulter (“Where is promised 10% tax cut for middle class?”) — there is no longer a middle class. That went away in the recession of 2008-2009 when the construction industry got hit. We are now the working poor, only making enough for necessary bills and keeping health benefits.
It is my opinion we need to stop relying on the top of the political ladder and make the local leaders responsible for qualified leadership, fair taxes and the like.
I always told my kids, “think globally but act locally.” So should we all.
