You live in the Minnesota Fourth Congressional District.
Your home value is plummeting.
You may well be out of work, and are certainly nervous about your job.
Your local property taxes are skyrocketing, while your schools are collapsing (especially if you’re black, asian or latino). They promise to zoom still further, as business, overtaxes and then starved out by light rail construction, deserts the city or starves to death.
And the nation is on the path to make Greece’s meltdown look like a fart in a tornado, with trillion dollar deficits and a national debt that just rocketed past a years’ GDP. And when the depression over all this is getitng to be too much and you need to see a doctor, before long you’ll need to see the one assigned to you by Gus the Cranky Public Servant.
But hey. At least Betty McCollum is tirelessly fighting Army ad money to NASCAR.
