Save Our Safety Net
While President Trump is attacking, insulting, mis informing and outright lying, his staff and his supporters are trying to dismantle the Safety Net that was start during the Teddy Roosevelt Administration, built upon by FDR, JFK, LBJ and President Obama.
Many people have been led to believe the Safety Net is limited to SNAP, (Food Stamps), LIHEAP (help keeping utility service), Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid. But it is so much more. It is keeping the environment clean, protecting consumers from dangerous products, ensuring corporations don't take advantage of workers and consumers.
The Safety Net is the Social Fabric that allowed America to grow our middle class, clean up our environment, allow for fair competition between businesses and provide aid for those who have suffered and are unable to care for themselves.
It is the very Social Fabric that allows people to take risks, that allows us to start businesses, work for companies that may fail and support our neighbors. Without a Safety Net, there would be fewer risk takers and many more people suffering, living without homes, without food and literally on the streets.
