Let’s discuss the letter to the editor blaming Democrats for America’s problems. First, OPEC has cut production. That causes the price of oil and gasoline to go up. Second, inflation happens when prices go up because the cost goes up of transporting items by truck, such as food, clothes, electronics, etc. Third, having most goods sold in America but made overseas because companies don’t want to pay a living wage causes major problems, unlike when most goods sold here were made here.
Republicans have never liked blue-collar workers because, unlike mega-corporations, blue-collar workers/middle-class workers can’t pay bribes (legalized by the U.S. Supreme Court not too long ago). Green jobs would help with climate change/global warming and pay a living wage. These are just a few things wrong with the letter writer, who seems to get news from Republicans and neocon news outlets like Fox.
