The United States added 431,000 new jobs last month, a sign, we are told, of how healthy the economy is. You could have fooled me. I’m not a numbers cruncher. I’m talking about how the economy feels, which translates pretty directly into how voters vote. And it doesn’t feel healthy, not at all. A big part of the reason is inflation, of course, and the rising prices and hidden little taxes you find on menus, in Ubers and Lyft rides, and just about everywhere else.
