The newly elected MP thinks he has a shot at becoming Emperor of the FE. Already, the Commoners Party has a candidate that they think will best suite the roll. Wayne Cage-Casey is from Newton, East Franconian State. He grew up mostly middle class and has six degrees in political science and History. Wayne believes that climate change is real and plans on to continue the Empress' Eco Energy Mass Production deal (from the New Eco Deal passed in 2059). Cage-Casey says that he wants the Empire to start building less snake neighborhoods and more Cohousing neighborhoods so the Empire can be the most efficient it can be. Taxes will fall slowly over time for the middle class and the tax burden will be left for megacorporate FE (3% of the Empire's wealth). Cage-Casey says the military should stay where it is at right now. Any more funding, then he'll think it's Ancient America's army.
William Song is from Middletown, Northwestern Franconia State. He says that there is a better way to clean the environment than green energy. Song says that taxes should be at a flat 15% across the nation and says the government has more than enough money for military, auto production, and education, but not Healthcare. Song says Healthcare should be at the consumers' expense, and not the government's. He says ports will be more secure than ever and will increase spending on riot defense forces.
