Who needs a middle-class big brother?

A couple days ago I learned about the White House Task Force on Middle Class Working Families; have you? It’s a major initiative by President Obama targeted at raising the living standards of middle-class, working families in America, comprised of top-level administration policy makers – real middle-class people like you and me.

The task force plans include regular meetings (won’t that accomplish a lot!) and outreach sessions with representatives of labor, business and the advocacy communities (also known as special interest groups and political campaign contributors). The chairperson of the task force is Vice President Joe Biden.

The task force website states that it will “work with a wide array of federal agencies that have responsibility for key issues facing the middle class and expedite administrative reforms, propose Executive orders, and develop legislative policy proposals that can be of special importance to working families."

Can you hardly wait for the good that will come from this? Don’t hold your breath waiting!

If you don’t have anything else better to do with your time, go here to keep informed of what this task force is doing for you: White House Middle Class Task Force website

But in all honesty, I encourage middle class working families to instead visit Pierini Fitness. I am the ambassador of middle-age men around the world, advocating their interests and expressing their views of the way life was, the way life is and the way life should be. The stuff I write about in my daily blogflections is better food for thought than listening to these federal government bureaucrats so far removed from the realities of middle America.

Besides, who needs a middle-class big brother?

Pax Domini sit semper vobiscum
