Al Franken is serious

It's different for middle-class families, too. These families are being squeezed harder and harder every year. Maybe you know what it's like to be one health crisis away from bankruptcy. Maybe you, or your parents or grandparents, can't afford prescriptions. Maybe you have kids, and you're worried about paying for their college. Maybe someone you love is in Iraq, and you don't know how long they'll have to stay there, or what will happen when they come home.

Middle-class families today struggle with that feeling of insecurity--the sense that things can fall apart without notice, outside of your control.

A most refresing voice in politics, free from bitterness, passionate about success. Wish we had that type of representation in Tennessee, as opposed to the Lifetime Politicians we've sent to the Senate.
