  1. This is great.

    Thanks for telling us.

  2. I am hoping that you will ask her opinion on and potential solutions to

    the terrible situation that poor and middle class wage earners are facing in today’s economy. The “real” cost of living has risen so dramatically in the last decade, while wages are flat or declining. Tax increases always seem to fall to those very workers who are already struggling to manage their household budgets. I am hoping to learn that she realizes that it is the collective whole of the situation that needs to be addressed, not just a few bits and pieces. I want to hear that she understands the extreme gravity of the situation. I want the candidates to take out a white board and itemize the budget of a household that earns $50,000 and see what the remaining balance is at the end of the month. I want to know that she will “teach” the other legislators the reality of life on Main St. Perhaps she’s already talked about this and I missed it. I have been too busy lately to pay attention to everything that is happening in this election. But then, that is the case with the majority of voters. Now would be a good time for me to hear what she has to say about the cost of living in Massachusetts and the dreadful impact it is having on the poor and the middle class. Also, I am hoping that I won’t hear the usual solution offered that education is the answer. While education is extremely important, it is not the answer that will fix the problem. Even college graduates are suffering during this economic crisis, and the $50,000 household budget I speak of would be from a college educated household. More education does not necessarily guarantee higher pay or a job. So while a college degree is important, it is not the total solution. I’m hoping she will inspire a broader approach to addressing the issues of the struggling Main St economy and the people it serves.

  3. Rescheduled?????

    Well maybe she can do it tonight after dinner. This is BMG after all. We are casual and comfortable. It would be nice to have her here for a casual and relaxed discussion between people who care about the crisis in this country. Light the fire, put on your slippers and join us.

  4. Not sure I'll catch your chat when it does get rescheduled

    but please consider bringing up the inflation and cost of living issues when you do meet with her. I’ll try to catch it another time.
