The man who cuts our grass pays $65 for enough gas to drive his truck and equipment across town to do his job. He has had to lay off some employees, raise prices and cut customers who live too far away in order to stay in business.
He is a decent, hardworking and efficient man — and he represents a multitude across our nation. However, no one represents him.
This crisis is solvable yet no one is solving it. Our representatives are parasites sucking on our prosperity, fiddling while Rome burns, tightening our Gordian knot while sawing through the limb we are sitting on.
