very interesting account of the middle class and politics. the political system intertwines with schumer's account of his own political growth/education, the fictional middle class family and the world of congress.

An interesting Democratic game plan to win back the middle class. Many good points. Too many big government points. I don't think Pelosi-ville has read the book.
