A strong and employed working/middle class earning good wages spends more money on factory goods, cars and homes. More factorys are built to produce goods and cars. More employees are hired to work in the factories and build the homes. The economy expands and steadily grows as long as the middle class is employed and economically healthy.

But that middle class must get that employment ... in order to collect the paycheck to purchase those goods.

They are able to do that through public support for schools, lower taxes, lower interest rates, and higher wages. Because the upper class does not care if their kids can afford to go to school and will pay as little as they have to as to earn more themselves. Corporations are not people but people make the decisions in them and they get paid more if they make more for the shareholders. Two much different agendas.

Two much different agendas.Just maybe if they would lower the taxes on the corporations . Get rid of all the red tape for the small business owner so they can get a line of credit to expand. Maybe take light up on the regulations on drillingwould bring the price of fuel down. So the middle would more money to spend on those goods . I n return companys would have less shipping cost for the goods. Maybe if the teacher were put on a merit be the best get the best pay would help with young people with entrepreneurism.

Going out on a limb here reform the health care like not like they trying to jam down our throats now. Just for starter interstate commerce.
