I encourage people to support President Biden’s new social agenda.

If money flows to the top earners it goes into banks, sometimes in foreign countries. But if money flows to the middle class it is spent locally on food, daycare, new cars, gas, etc.

The minimum wage increase is finally enough to support families in a decent way.  The increase also means the middle class will grow and will lead to a smaller number of people on welfare. But it will take a while to fill the hole left by the recent tax cuts that allowed the ultra rich to just sit on their piles of money.

I urge folks to call their members of Congress to vote for the middle class; we are the ones who support the whole country. It is time for us to feel our effort is appreciated and not squandered.
