Spending Priorities and the Budget

Americans tend to be fair people. But right now there is populist anger that has not stopped. It started before the 2016 elections and remains a critical factor in 2020. Many Americans are on the edge. This is an economic predicament where people do not have $500 dollars if there is an emergency. Many are working two and three jobs because the rent is very high, and good-paying union jobs are almost non-existent. While Wall Street continues to go up, the mainstream has to cope with homelessness, poor medical care, bad schools, crumbling infrastructure, and other issues.
