What Do You Think? 

Dear Fellow Vermonter,

I recently read results from a Pew Research Center poll which I found extraordinary. When asked whether life for people in America is worse today than it was 50 years ago, 58% said that it was.

Think about that. Think about all the changes that we’ve seen over the last 50 years. Think about the introduction of computers, the Internet, cell phones, 100 channel cable-tv systems, and so much more.

And yet, despite all of that, a significant majority think life was better for Americans a half century ago. Why is that? What has happened to make people feel that way?

What do YOU think? Is life better today than it was 50 years ago, or have we gone backwards?

I would love to hear your reply and, in the near future, we’ll do a Bernie Buzz with some of the comments we received. You can submit your response┬áHERE.

Thanks very much.
