The arrogance of a president and his party has crushed the dreams of millions of Americans who long for a more inclusive government. Crushed are the dreams of those who believe that the purpose of government is to promote the well-being of all its citizens. Devastated are those people who continue to believe that well-being is not served by a few more dollars in some people’s pockets.
The list of threats to citizens’ well-being is long. The degree of statesmanship displayed by both political parties is short.
We are fiddling while America burns.
Hubert Kauffman, Oxford
