Political discussions with mom

 Mom and I were sitting and discussing that Modi has basically impoverished the middle class while the poor get so many more benefits that they have no need to work. Mom spoke about how her staff got cash from a certain political party - once to vote, and once after the rains. (the said political party is not BJP).

Which got us to think - the middle classes will always be disadvantaged because they never unite. The business classes don't care that the taxation on the salaried is getting insane. The salaried don't care that GST has made business insanely tough - both for compliance and for transacting itself. The rules defy every principle of common sense.
While the govt has gone on to talk about the need to create employment, it has done nothing to make people employable. There is no limit on govt freebies for more than 2 children. This actually incentivises population growth among the poor, since their cash flow increases with every child, but there is no minimum responsibility upon the parent to ensure the wellbeing of the child.
