And the deal always was if you worked hard; if you raised your kids; if you played by the rules; if you paid your taxes, then you’d have a shot at . . . at the American dream. You’d have a shot at long term security. And now that’s beginning to fade and people are very worried. And so those are the kinds of big issues that we care about and that we have to address.
