Inflation is hitting hard in the United States and worldwide. The annual U.S. inflation

rate “slowed” to 8.5% in July 2022 from an over 40-year high of 9.1% in June.

CREATE JOBS WITH LIVING WAGES

The problem is not just jobs, but jobs with living wages. The current federal minimum wage of $7.25 per hour does not allow working families, even with two full-time wage earners, adequately to support themselves and one or more children.

CURB NATIONAL DEBT

When President Donald Trump took office in January 2017, U.S. national debt was $19.9 trillion; and at the end of his term, it was $27.8 trillion or 40% higher. Most of the increase was due to the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (Trump Tax Cuts), which added $8.3 trillion. Meanwhile, Trump’s idea of paying off debt through massive tariff increases did

not work and gravely damaged American agriculture.
