You’ll never forget the last time you went camping.
The last time I saw my grandparents, they were all up in a field on the other side of town, smoking a pipe.
It was the end of June, and we were still at our first big camping trip of the year.
I remember it like it was yesterday, and I remember it a lot, because it was such a different experience from my summer.
There was no electricity, no running water, no cell phone coverage.
We had no power in the cabin and had to share the stove with our grandparents, who had just gotten a new microwave.
“This was just going to be an extension of them living off the grid,” said my grandmother, who died last year.
But in the winter of 2019, she and her grandparents got an offer to build a small cabin on a plot of land on the edge of the county.
They built it in three months, built a water supply and electricity for the first three years, and lived off the land for years afterward.
But after their winter came to an end, they had to return to the grid to make ends meet.
When the grid came back on in January 2020, they put in a generator.
They still have a generator, but they are paying for it with their summer income.
They are still on their own.
So how can we recreate this rural experience?
For the past 20 years, we’ve been making it a priority to get our people back into rural America.
But we have to take the time to make that happen.
To make sure we’re doing everything we can to create the right environment for our people to stay on the land, we need to invest in the communities that will support their transition back to the community, we must be able to connect them to the skills that will enable them to thrive in rural America, and the best way to do that is to make it affordable for them to stay and support their families in rural communities.
The first step is recognizing what is the reality of rural America and then making sure that people have access to the tools they need to thrive.
What are the best ways to make rural America more affordable?
The first thing we need is a real plan to address the lack of economic opportunity that rural Americans face.
That means a national policy to make certain that rural jobs are created, and that those jobs are good jobs, not just good pay.
We have to invest and expand the rural infrastructure so that our communities are able to get to that point, and so that we are not just building homes, but also businesses and hospitals and schools and libraries and other infrastructure to create opportunities for people to work in rural areas.
The second thing is to look at our rural schools and our rural health care system, both of which are critical to our rural economies.
They need to be better funded, they need better technology, and they need funding to provide them the training and education they need.
And that’s why I’m pleased that, just last week, I signed an executive order to make investments to create more than 1 million new rural jobs in the next four years.
This is a critical step toward creating jobs for our rural communities, but it is also a critical stepping stone to the jobs of the future.
Because if we want to see rural communities thrive, we have an opportunity to grow our economy, our health care and our schools, and to provide more jobs and more opportunities for rural Americans.
But if we don’t, we will continue to leave our rural people behind.
The third thing we have got to do is understand what’s at stake in our economy.
If we want rural people to thrive, they have to have access, they’ve got to be able make it in a world that’s more competitive, and more prosperous.
And when we talk about the health care, it’s the same thing.
If you are an American, you want to be a good American, not an absentee.
If you are a rural person, you know that the most important thing you can do to help create jobs is to have health care coverage.
But to help rural people get health care you need to understand what is at stake.
As we get back to our communities and communities and states, we should also look at what’s happening in our housing markets.
We know that rural housing is in crisis.
Rural people in rural states are struggling to keep their houses on the same schedule.
Rural housing markets are the largest in the country, and rural homes are in foreclosure and the foreclosure rate is up.
And if we are to help people make the transition to a healthy and productive economy, we also need to help them stay in their homes and in their communities.
In rural America there is a need for health care.
Rural Americans need jobs.
Rural health care needs health care providers
