I live in a solidly lower middle class area. Everyone around me works for a living and if they missed a paycheck, they would be in big trouble.
Some of them are huge Trump supporters. Come February when they get a few extra dollars in their paychecks, they will point to that as a victory. They have a real trouble seeing the bigger picture. You might have gotten a few dollars back on your paycheck, but your boss and the company you work for are both getting massive tax cuts. And the Social Security that we rely on to someday not starve to death when we are older is now in play as far as the current Republican Party is concerned. Healthcare? Trump/Ryan/Mcconnell want to do away with Medicare.
These good men and women, working class people who struggle to pay their bills, have been told by Faux News and the right wing media that they are struggling because of illegals and brown people. They firmly believe that their economic status is tied to immigration, and not to the fact that all the wealth has shifted to the top 1%, and Trump’s tax plan only accelerates that.
Trump and this batch of Republicans have turned on the Middle Class. They have turned on working class America, and we must make them pay.
I am a Republican. I vote Republican because I want a strong military and I don’t think we should spend more than we make. But I also believe in country over party, and the current Republicans in Congress have turned on us, Middle Class America, and they must be voted out.
I hope there are strong, logical, Middle Class supporting Republicans to vote for in November, but if not, I’ll be voting anyone who is against Trump, and anyone who is against these massive give away tax cuts that only help to shift more to the people who need it the least.
