Raising taxes on billionaires and hiking the tax rate on Americans making more than $400,000 a year may help, in my opinion, but it is surely not the solution.

Inflation is at an all-time high, and President Biden is bragging on a better economy, which is what worries me. I wonder why America would give him another four years as its president.

Both parties need to strike a deal to reinforce retirement so that retiring Baby Boomers have a fair chance at life. Teaching the younger generation to be more disciplined when it comes to saving and spending, too.

Where politicians need to learn, at times, I think the government should get out of the way and let private business take over. Let’s face it, the well-to-do are willing to spend their own money in order to get people’s money when it comes to enjoying their future endeavors.

Disciplinary spending would be a better choice for our government rather than pointing the finger at the well-to-do.

So, let’s not put the blame on farmers, grocers and high fuel prices for trying to stay above water when our government is running the country.

My definition of an “honest politician” would be one who is disciplined and motivated to making a better America.
