NEWS AND TRIBUNE LETTER — For Feb. 1-2


Inequality of power is the real story

 

The real story of America’s inequality gap is between the powerful elites in Washington, D.C., and we, the American people.

This is about the president of the United States going on national TV for his state of the union address to announce that he is going to ditch the checks-and-balances on his executive power, do an end-run around our elected representatives in Congress, and push through a power-grabbing agenda with his “pen” and his “phone.”  

It’s time for real equality in America. And we can start by tilting the equation of power back to the people, and keeping it that way, with checks and balances on government power.
