A message to Romney and Obama

The next generation is the first generation in American history that is not expected to have a better quality of life than the one that came before it. All Americans should be ashamed of this. Most parents frequently remind their kids to share and to think about others, but no one seems to be thinking about them.

Dear Gov. Romney and President Obama:

No matter who wins the election for the presidency tomorrow, many Americans are hopeful the winner will make changes that improve the long-term prospects for our nation’s children. For years, Republican and Democrat politicians alike have ignored long-term problems that will affect the next generation, in favor of taking care of those who will vote for them in the next election.

Not only does the next generation not have a say (because they can’t vote), they also don’t get many of the benefits that are targeted to other segments of the population. The real whopper is, they also get stuck with the bills for all of the goodies that went to everybody else.

To fix this problem, it will be necessary for politicians to stop thinking about their own re-elections. That means they will have to stop pandering to seniors, and students, and everyone else in between and start thinking about the future. Start thinking about kids.

The next generation is the first generation in American history that is not expected to have a better quality of life than the one that came before it. All Americans should be ashamed of this. Most parents frequently remind their kids to share and to think about others, but no one seems to be thinking about them.

What should we do?

  1. Mr. Ingram, Just read your piece in the Trib today. My dear friend Henry(he supports Obama, I support Romney) and I had a conversation about 3 months ago and came to virtually the same conclusions as yourself…Just can’t understand why the folks in Washington refuse to understand this…CHRIS INGRAM FOR PRESIDENT!!!! There must be a way to put pressure on these people to quit playing and get to work.
