We are the Divided States of America. Sadly, income inequality divides us. When 1% possess
more wealth than 99% of the population it is difficult to maintain a healthy democracy by the
people and for the people. Extremely wealthy people and corporations use their unlimited
resources to unfairly influence ordinary citizens, economics, politicians, media, and even the
This enormous income inequality leads to concern about the working poor— the people who
work multiple jobs and struggle to provide food, shelter, and healthcare for their families. I am
worried about people who lose their insurance when they lose employment. How can the
richest country in the world allow any of its children to live in poverty and without healthcare?
How can legislators who are supposed to serve the people accept generous health care
benefits but repeatedly attempt to deny their constituents that same level of care? Is this a
modern feudal system where all the king’s men have privilege and power while the serfs
continue to work tirelessly to contribute to the vast wealth of those in power?
When you vote, choose candidates that will stand up for an economy that is good for all the
people. Vote Biden/Harris.
