Delegate Mike McKay is conducting what he is calling a listening session this afternoon at Allegany College of Maryland.  McKay, who represents a portion of Allegany and Washington counties, will be joined by leaders from across the state to hear from professional as well as the general public on matters impacting the middle class.  A panel discussion will be held from 3 to 5 p.m. with local stakeholders, business leaders and elected officials. That session is open for public attendance. However, a second session from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. will include an open mic for public input.

    A similar item was pulled yesterday to reappear now with a completely different emphasis.
    there is now no mention of public assistance.
    Why now be concerned with matters impacting the “middle class” only, separated as though these people deserve special consideration over and above the population as a whole.
    Should we feel that the “wealthy” can take care of themselves or that the “poor” are not worthy of our concern?
    Everyone has the same concerns, to a greater or lesser degree. Rising costs of everything and a continued erosion of the value of the dollar.
    Family health and safety in a dangerous modern world.
    The litany can go on and on.
    The “middle class” feels this but it’s of greater impact on the “poor” where a much greater percentage of income is needed to pay for these necessities.
    Why not include the “poor” in this, oh wait, this is where public assistance comes in. A portion of their needs are met without any input of their own.
    Everyone wants to consider themselves to be “middle class” no matter what their socio-economic background might be, so it’s only fair to include everyone in these discussions and not arbitrarily separate out one perceived “class”.
