Economic inequality is probably the most pressing issue our nation faces. Members of both parties are not doing enough to address the problem, often falling back to the same failed ideas that brought us here.
For the past 30 years, the one percent hijacked our political system to invest in themselves. Brianna Wu knows it’s time they invested in the rest of us. Under her leadership, America will invest in a broad array of economic programs for the 99 percent, not the 1 percent. Everything from public transportation, affordable housing, and free higher education must be on the table. These ideas aren’t new - they’re the same policies that led to the unprecedented wealth of the Baby Boomers.
Although we tell ourselves that America is a country of economic mobility, it’s no longer as true as it once was. That can change, but not with this Congress. It's time to elect Brianna Wu.
