Last Sunday I read with interest, as I always do, Jack Kelly’s column (“It’s Raining Bankers: Perhaps They Know of Big Trouble Ahead,” March 23).
First, I want to thank Mr. Kelly for maintaining his dignity by not blaming the recent rash of suicides in the financial industry on certain people in the U.S. government or their health care initiatives.
Second, I will agree that there is plenty of pain in the economy, but it is vastly larger among working people, recent graduates and others who have just joined the workforce, where unemployment is over 20 percent and emergency benefits for many have run out.
This tumbles down and out to their communities and across our nation when our most influential officials and their backstage promoters insist on sacrificing the environment, wage equity, energy innovation and our infrastructure for still lower taxes for the richest among us.
Trouble? Most definitely! Among the 1 percent? Very little.
