Not to mention the value of your dollar is decreasing. A friend works for the state as a supervisor of county parole officers. She makes $50K after 20+ years of working. Has not had a raise in 5 years. Yet, gas has gone up, groceries way up, cost of college education for her daughter up. People wonder why there is less money in their pockets year after year and they don't think it is due to taxes, inflation, and devaluation of the dollar or due to this administration having no clue how an economy works efficiently? It's like those three monkeys in a statute with their ears, eyes, and mouth covered.
