With the presidential election becoming closer, the possible candidates have various views on the topics in government. Two of the more important topics in my opinion are economic inequality and healthcare. Economic inequality is a growing concern among most of America, as the middle class wages are steadily declining and the upward mobility of children born in poverty is stagnant. As a biology major, the issue of healthcare is extremely important to me as I continue to hear that the current system of healthcare will eventually crash and needs to be reformed quickly.
