While going through headlines, etc. some things jumped out:
- Some Senate Republicans are planning to block all non-budget (and they mean non-budget cutting) bills.
- Multiple events (having nothing at all to do with global climate change) have reduced overall food supply, driving food costs up-possibly forever.
- Florida is going to reduce unemployment benefits. Do you think other states will do the same? I do.
- The national unemployment rate may not drop below 8%, ever.
That's right. Costs are going up. The government is doing nothing to support wages or worse yet actively working on driving wages down, while cutting or eliminating safety nets. Well, at least spring is almost here.
