Average Citizens Have Been Ignored
I am a citizen of this once great nation, and I am in fear of what this country and planet will look like for my 4-year-old son. I don’t think that anyone on Capitol Hill understands the average citizen.
I understand that big corporations and banks are what helped the politicians fund their campaigns to their offices, but it is the average blue collar citizen who keeps America going. We have been ignored and are on our way to extinction.
The banks that our hard-earned tax dollars bailed out will soon be in the same position they were in before the government gave them all the money. Mr. President, the government could have paid off every American mortgage in existence, and the banks would have received the money anyway. The citizens would have had extra income to spend on the economy, and we would have created more jobs.
I had to sell my home, and now, at age 47 and a single father, I am living in an apartment. American citizens just want to go to their jobs, work their shifts and then go home to family. As the government continues to send millions of dollars to Pakistan and Mexico, we here at home can’t pay our power bill, buy our children school clothes or sometimes even food.
I am deeply ashamed of our government and what it has done to our people. You ran your whole campaign on change. All the people see is change for the worse.
When I was a child, I was proud to stand in my classroom, put my hand on my chest and pledge to God and country. Now my pride is filled with debts of despair and sadness. May God have mercy on us all because our elected officials have none.
