9. I'm retired.

My IRA is on life support. I hold few other "implements"... nothing doing well. Other than that, we live on Social Security. With inflation, especially in the food department, we're barely holding our own.

However, I'm voting straight democratic ticket next month. The only time the economy does well is when Democrats are in office. Two more years for Biden, and a fully Democratic Congress and we MIGHT be able to make strides. That is, IF the administration does something to rein in our oligarchs.
