Politicians like to tell you what to worry and be concerned about. What do you hear most about from the left? Perhaps inequality, Wall Street, climate change, billionaires, fair share? The right hammers away on Obamacare and immigration.
Turns out none of that is a top concern of voters. Do you get the feeling politicians miss the point or simply ignore us?
Americans are not concerned about inequality, they are concerned about the quality of their lives. Americans don’t want higher taxes on some to give more welfare to them. Americans want good jobs and a robust economy to keep things humming along. If you release the U.S. economy from constraints, if you create demand for American goods and services that in turn creates demand for workers and that will increase pay and income, but everyone knows that … except some politicians apparently.
