Income and Wealth Inequality
A lot of people are seeing their savings wiped out by the virus crisis. The numbers of people who are absolutely impoverished is rising. The attitude of Republicans is let them eat cake. Amazon has thrived. I read that the Jeff Bezos net worth has increased by 24 billion dollars this year. We need to provide everybody with a minimum income. The well-off, the rich, the super rich, and super super rich can afford to pay for it. The shocking and disgraceful increase in income and and wealth inequality needs to be reversed, fast. The survival of our country as a decent place in the world is at stake.
