So we want to incentive cost cutting? In an administration that lacks any moral fortitude this is a slippery slope to bonuses to those who cut what Donald and his buyers want cut. Perhaps a better alternative would be to repeal the tax cut that only benefits the wealthy, apply tax breaks to the lower and middle income earners, invest federal dollars in infrastructure, education and the ACA so that poor and working class families can have a chance at the American Dream. As cliche as our children are our future is, it is wholly true. If American children can’t get a great education, how do we expect them to become great? How can a family become a functional part of the American economy when working a full time job isn’t enough to pay rent? How can a parent raise a child properly when they are working two jobs at 60-80 hours a week? How can a middle class family in the United States exist when a single hospital admission can leave them in financial ruins? The United States became the super power it is on the backs of a strong working and middle class, where 40 hours a week was a full time position that could support a family. This is no longer the case. Washington has abandoned the average American and has become beholden to those with millions of dollars to give to Super PACS that tow their agenda. We live in an era where the current powers that be ignore data, facts, and the truth. They spout propaganda and memes as they demonize those who are poor, those who believe in helping their fellow man, and those who speak to facts, laws, and justice. For our democracy to survivor this must end. It is time that We The People wrestle our democracy back from those pay to play.
