From: Curt Y., Austin, TX

Ensure that every job provides a living wage. Create a safety net for those that can not and will not find employment. A strong social safety net is important because our economic system in America will not support 100 percent employment. Raise taxes if necessary, and commit to ending poverty and holding our government leaders accountable. Support leaders bold enough to take a stand and move beyond political spin.
