We know that inflation is bad – nobody likes it and today’s numbers show there is not an end in sight. But today, we’re going to focus on the January 6th hearings which began in primetime last night. Let’s focus on the broader question of the public’s trust in government.
A new Pew poll reports that American’s trust in government is at an all-time low 20%, off from a high of over 70% during the Regan years. With so little trust in the government, do these hearings matter? Or has the public already made up their minds and dug in even further to their political tribes?
Is democracy even still alive and well?
We welcome your comments on this matter as well as the state of our union. Thanks for listening and we’ll see you next week.
