Greed is good to some, but not for this Country, the back lash could be devastating.
I believe these policies are of a concerted effort to keep struggling folks down that represents nothing less than a war on the poor and working class families.
The Author explains why this is happening and he gives solutions that may be expanded upon or acted on. I was surprised that the Author Corky Johnson was strong, bold, and brave enough to write the truth of these current times. He has given me and my family hope that thing's can turn around for the better, if we all work together for a common clause. I recommend this book be read, and I rate it 5 Star's, great job, can't wait for the next one.
Sincerely, M. Galbreath.
