As I think about the nation we are leaving for the next generation I am deeply concerned and yet genuinely hopeful.
I’m concerned because the country is so deeply divided and caught up in dangerous political rhetoric. Our government is not producing the results that the people of Maryland and America deserve. Party-line Democrats and party-line Republicans are serving their own interests, not the nation’s. Politicians seem to only care about securing their next donation and winning their next election instead of working together to find solutions for this country’s biggest problems. Why is it so hard to get ahead financially? Why are so many schools failing our kids? Why is the national debt continuing to spiral out of control? And why are we leaving the next generation an irresponsible amount of national debt rather than investing in their future?
