In his book on the American jobs dilemma, the author examines some of the problems that the action of the American middle class has brought upon itself. He comments on how we have allowed institutions to grow too-big-to-succeed while focusing on those that are too-big-to-fail. He asks, why have we let our politicians pit Americans against each other with a rancorous class warfare agenda, why is the stuff we use every day from toothpicks to tractors made someplace else and why are the President and Congress unable to solve our jobs crises. He has an interesting theory regarding why Main Street has disconnected from Wall Street. Why do we give our Social Security contributions along with our employer's to the government instead of keeping them in individual accounts. Andy proposes a Commit to America plan that focuses on providing private sector jobs and streamlining government
