I wish our politicians could read--and understand!--your posts. I am so frustrated by people who say there's only one way forward: cut spending. The people you serve know that there's a second option: increase revenue. Stephen Hawking said it best: Everyone can enjoy a life of luxurious leisure if the machine-produced [robots] wealth is shared, or most people can end up miserably poor if the machine-owners successfully lobby against wealth redistribution. So far, the trend seems to be toward the second option, with technology driving ever-increasing inequality.
