  • Less Interest!!!
  • More Interest!!!
  • TOWN MEETING TMRW
  • Dear Home Residents, Are you aware of the increased interest rates on the lower class? These are significantly higher than those of the upper class. To learn more about this please meet in the town square on Wednesday. This is URGENT!
  • Imagine being someone who has lots of money. Someone who owns boats, a pool, and a large house. Then one day you find out that you pay lower interest rates than the lower class of America. To you, this is great, because now you can pay off your boat faster.
  • Whoa! This guy seems legit!
  • Thanks for coming out! I'd like to inform you about this issue...
  • Now imagine being a lower income class citizen who works really hard, and is just trying to make enough money to support your family. You are in need of a used car but you learn that because of your zip-code, you have to pay a higher interest rate.
  • This is an outrage! Why does the poor have to pay more than the wealthy?
  • Both lower and upper class citizens get a letter, or email informing them of the different interest rates between classes. At first you think this is wrong and get angry but then you keep reading and find out that someone you look up to will be speaking in your town hall; you're now very intrigued.
  • One week later...
  • Why are we fighting? Its time for a change. KNOWELDGE IS POWER!
  • You go to the town hall meeting and see a mix of different income classes. You listen to the speaker and become completely aware of the situation and the problem that is all around you.
  • Soon, the lower income citizens become angered. They realize just how unfair this situation is. You think, why pay more when I can barely make enough money to support myself? The upper classes could easily pay this higher rate.
  • After a week of hard thinking, the wealthy and poor realized that if they worked together they could change the rate to be an amount that every class could pay! After all, KNOWLEDGE IS POWER.
