    If those working class
    1. Can you link the working class poor to being highly GOP ? If so, then your answer of no makes sense.

    2. The bankrupticy claims is meaningless without a follow up statistic which you don't include. For sure, bankruptcies have come down in the last five or six years. Some say "Obamacare" may have some impact on that. It makes sense, but they can't prove it or the impact relative to a better economy and new bankruptcy laws.

    3. I don't get your question. I never said anything to that affect (are we good enough). Aren't you jumping to conclusions about my POV without know what it is (or asking) ?

    i shouldn't have to link it. we know working class whites voted trump. that's GOP.

    there were no new bankruptcy laws of any significance. no one was permitted to file who could not file before and no one was prohibited from filing who was able to before. at least as far as i am aware.

    the economy was better... but that did not translate into working class wages which have been flatlined for decades. the bulk of the recovery benefitted the top 1%.

    you should look things up before you make inaccurate assertions.

    It is difficult to get a feel for what your basis for these claims is. I understand your comments about the poor getting help...but isn't that the group that will suffer the most when payments are cut ?

    Maybe I am missing something.

    I am fine with those oneliners if you can produce statistics to prove them.

    Most of what I read says those who look at the data can't make those distinctions.

    Did you publish an article or are you really asking me to take your arguments over those who spend considerable time with the data ?

    What would I be looking up ?

    I have asked the question. I am not arguing the point.

    What I am arguing is that it feels like these payments were going to people who were poor and they stand to be hurt the most. I am also saying that a high majority of the people who are poor vote democratic.

    You have brought in the working class poor who you say are overly leaning GOP. I will do some looking into that.

    It would seem that you are not going to.

    Not what I would call good debate.
