During the second term of President Obama, the fissure that had been simmering below the surface broke open and the parties declared open war on one another. The rupture has only gotten larger during the term of President Trump.
Now the pandemic that is sweeping the world and now is blooming in the United States has only highlighted the divisions between the parties. Our representatives are betraying the fundamental trust Americans used to have in our federal government. That trust is broken.
Reach out to your congressmen/women and your Senators and demand they face up to their responsibilities now. Demand that they broker a compromise package of legislation that will truly and significantly impact the medical and economic conflagration this country faces. Special attention should be paid to the health issues of older Americans and the problems faced by small business owners and their employees.
