Letter: Follow the money
Re: ‘Congress v. the middle class’ (Metro, Jan. 15)
To letter writer Herb Stark and other Metro readers, may I offer an answer to Congress’s inability to do what is right/good for us, the middle class: Money! Generally speaking, Republicans and Democrats are in office today because of the larger campaign contributions the upper class is able to give. Statistics show that the elected officials spend more time raising money to be elected than they do on studying policy to benefit the people, especially monetary policy.
As stated in the letter, cutting funding is wrong when the problem lies in Congress’s ignorance of the money power. The answer is found in our debt-based, usurious monetary system controlled by the privately owned Federal Reserve, where their policy is to have the middle class never have enough money to pay their debts, giving all of our elected officials a sense of a constant state of scarcity.
