Good money being thrown after bad
Perhaps one of your American readers or the United States Consul can answer a question that has been bothering me for the past year. First, though, what is the problem?
From news reports from many sources, a lot of people in the US have problems meeting their mortgages and putting food on their tables. I don’t know how much money was spent by the Republican and Democratic parties over the presidential election, nor for the election of members to the Senate and Congress, but since the election, Donald Trump has raised more than $200 million for his Election Defence Fund. The folks standing for the Senate election in Georgia appear to have generated support to the tune of $330 million to $350 million for their campaigns.
My question is why does a system of a so-called democracy that is able to raise so much money for campaigns and border walls not take care of their average citizen?
Unfortunately, since time began, there will always be poor people, but from the TV reports, a lot of people in the food lines do not fall into that category.
A lot of money is available, but it is not being used for the good folks who need it.
