How have we done this to ourselves? I am so distressed over our government -- from the quality of the people in the government (including appointees to lifetime judgeships and cabinet members). Currently I'm really upset by the tax bill that has had no real input from experts, no discussion between legislators on both sides of the aisle, and no concern for people at the lower end of the income scale. No concern for medical care even for children. Interesting that they consider low income to be a higher income than I have ever received even tho' I have personally not felt poor. I think our lawmakers have no idea how many people live. I wish I knew what I could do to address what looks like a downward spiral for our democracy.
