Closing Tabs

As long as I'm at it, I may as well post the one article that keeps being open on my browser, not really finding the appropriate place to post it, but just feeling in my gut that it's important to share.

See, there's this thing where I really feel like my generation is getting short shrift. There isn't the public investment in things like there was in the past. There are no great bridge or highway projects. Our schools are aging and worn, but no one is stepping up to say, "Yes, let's invest in that. I believe education is important." Instead it's attacks on teachers from every angle imaginable. And folks in my generation just can't seem to get ahead. The whole get a good education, get a career, and you should be able to afford basically what folks the generation before had doesn't seem to work. Turns out, the gut feeling is borne out by the research. For the generation behind mine, it looks even more grim. So what are we to do? How do we get Americans to invest in America and bring back the American Dream?
