The American middle-class is facing a serious, devastating crisis about which, most of us are totally unaware. In 1970, the richest 10% of Americans controlled about 30% of the nation's total wealth. In 2016, the richest 10% of Americans controlled a whopping 90% of the nation's total wealth, and the transfer rate is faster than it has ever been. It doesn't take a genius to see that this trend, if uninterrupted, does not spell good news for the middle class. In fact, if we don't do something, it seems apparent that our middle class, along with all the benefits and opportunities the middle class affords, will likely just disappear, leaving a society of only rich and poor. Our Congress, as the lawmaking body of our nation, has the power to help change this trend, and revitalize the middle class. Unfortunately for the middle class, though, the US Congress seems much more interested in looking out for the wealthy than they are the middle class. Congress is also severely broken. Between chronic, debilitating partisanship, the lobbies to which Congressmen and Senators are indebted, trying to placate diverse local constituencies, the interaction of enormous egos, and a plethora of other intermingled problems, Congress is simply unable to tackle, let alone solve, the huge problems facing our nation today. This book sets forth the theory that the only solution is to replace every available seat, 435 in the House of Representatives and 33 in the Senate, in ONE election cycle and replace them with honest, hard-working members of America's middle class. And it also details a plan and offers readers an opportunity to join a grassroots movement to do just that. If you are a member of the American middle class, this book should be considered a "MUST READ!" It details the problem and spells out a plan for what may very well be the ONLY hope for saving our middle class.
