These 3 Policy Failures Are Killing the American Dream
10/10/19 - Teamsters local 570

If that wealth were divided evenly across the U.S. population, every human being in our country would have roughly $298,000 to their name — and every family of four would be millionaires. Few Americans feel entitled to full communism.
