The cost of living has been out of reach for the very poor for a long time, but now it is approaching the out of reach point for the middle class.
One can hardly go into a supermarket anymore and come out having spent less than $50.00.
Why do you think schoolteachers are striking all over the place?
Hell, the government can’t afford to subsidize even most of the very poor, let alone take on the financial burden of subsidizing the middle class, too.
There is no reversing this upward cost of living socialist monster as long as there is a socialist minimum wage law in place, period.
