Please Help Solve America's Economic Issues
Manufacturing jobs have mostly moved offshore to developing third world countries. Technical jobs are also being outsourced to other countries. Medicare and Social Security will both be bankrupt within about twenty years. The United States Congress is unable to pass a balanced budget. An estimated 20% of Americans do not have medical insurance, and this burden will fall onto American taxpayers. A lot of Americans have high personal debts that have eradicated any hopes for their prosperity, especially the housing credit fiasco. The United States has the highest trade deficit ever that has given America the highest national debt ever too. Furthermore, the national debt is exponentially rising. Additionally, the costs of repairing damage done to the environment are both staggering and increasing. And finally, the current wars are putting even further economic pressure on the American taxpayers.
As a result, the United States of America is in serious financial trouble, and it is only going to get worse in the foreseeable future. Future generations of Americans are probably going to be crippled with America's debt obligations. Future generations may not even be able to pay off the interest on our debts if there are few well paying jobs left in the country.
Yet the United States is still giving trillions of dollars annually to other countries when America is unable to solve their own economic problems first. Shouldn't the United States of America put their house in order first, before helping other countries?
Shouldn't the economy, both present and future, of the United States of America be one of the most important issues in politics? Shouldn't the bankruptcy of America be prevented at all costs?
Fellow Americans, the economic future of the United States of America looks bleak, so please contact your representatives in government and demand fiscal responsibility immediately!
