A chicken in every pot -- it's that time again

FDR knew what the people needed, and we need it again. The economy boils down to the price of bread and eggs and chicken to most of us, and we're having trouble affording them.

Most politicians and their staff don't notice. Like George H.W. Bush in his 1992 debate with Bill Clinton, they don't know the price of a gallon of milk.

What can Biden do? Food vouchers for all, like the stimulus checks during Covid? Even if the Republicans block them, they're taking a stand against feeding the people, which can't be good for them.

I would hate to lose because the power brokers don't realize how hard it is for those making less than them to make it through the week.
