On Tuesday, I wrote about the biggest news stories for consumers in 2015. There wasn't much positive to report with lagging salaries for workers, more and more layoffs, increased mergers, record-breaking fines for corporations accused of fraud and deception, and lagging government services.
And, 2016 doesn't look much better. With the Republican candidates for president spouting a conservative approach that favors corporations over consumers, it doesn't look like we'll be seeing improvements any time soon.
What's upsetting to me is that conservatives have taken over the country in terms of how the governments operates and who we are.
