Allen: We Need a Govt That Controls the Flow of Wealth
I believe the purpose of government is to improve the well-being of the people. Today the middle class is being squeezed by higher costs for housing, health care, fuel and education, among other things. Wealth and incomes are being concentrated at the top. We need a federal government that responds to the needs of working families.
I voted against the bankruptcy bill, because it unfairly increased the leverage of the credit card companies against their customers.
