Economics: The Elephant in the Room

www.MattHarrisForTX10.comPlease share with your friends on FB. My website link above will provide a full range of my positions.Economics – The Democratic Party has not offered a robust counter to the Republican drive to concentrate wealth and power. Typical Democratic proposals:1) Raise minimum wage – I would vote for it, but it is a pathetic answer to our current low-wage dynamic.2) Unions – Can help in the process of raising wages but need help from much bigger tax policy shifts.3) Social Security – Yes, let's block Republicans from stealing your earned benefits. SS also needs to be increased for those at the bottom, not cut as Republicans are openly planning. Why do we avoid the elephant in the room? We must neutralize rampant monopoly power and other forms of special privilege. Most of the answers are in the tax code. Until we face the real core problem, we are only making people more comfortable in their poverty. Send me to congress TX10 if you want someone to fight for real change.
