Middle Class Today, Tomorrow?

My husband and I emerged from the recession with one less car, one full time job [mine] and a construction company that 's started building again [his and mine]. But -- my job with a nonprofit would be "on the block," and if the recession returns, there go our building contracts. Again.

One son and one daughter work for nonprofits. Two sons are self-employed, both -- you guessed it -- construction. They are doing ok -- right now. This "cliff" could take us all down.

Why would elected officials put corporations ahead of the ordinary, but voting, public? Please don't let this happen. I'm one of many and I care.
