    For over 100 years now, the Democrat strategy has been to funnel everything to the poor at the expense of the middle class and the wealthy. That strategy serves two purposes. First, it purchases votes (power) from the entire lower class. Second, it forces the middle class into the lower class and the upper class into the middle class. The more poor people dependent on government, the more the Democrats ensure a large voting base for themselves.

    That strategy can be clearly seen in the "Affordable Healthcare Plan". There is nothing "affordable" about it and it has devastated the middle class at the benefit of the lower class (the Democrat strategy flawlessly playing itself out). It has even collapsed the healthcare exchange - with something like 14 of the 17 insurance providers dropping out.

    The responses here from a tweet by Nancy Pelosi illustrates the catastrophic effect it has on the middle class...

    Actually, of course, the exact opposite is true.

    This election put the final nail in the coffin of the middle class. It also means we will never catch up with the rest of the world.

    What an absurd thing to say given the economic numbers coming out since the election.

    We don't have 'classes' in the USA.....we have people who make different incomes and whose incomes can increase/decrease depending on the individual and his efforts.....but these terms have been used so much that we tend to use them now unfortunately....

    I get what you're trying to say - but there are different levels of income and that in itself is a classification (just as color, gender, religion, sexuality, etc. are also categories for classification).

    No worries. At most it's just 4 years. Possibly a lot less if Trump stays on the current trajectory towards disaster.

    Helping people is not evil as you suggest. The problem is that Democrats want to empower government and it becomes very expensive because of bureaucrats. When I talk about bureaucrats, I am not talking about the park ranger. Meals on Wheels is a program that works and it is cost effective. Yet Trump wants to cut off funding. We need to look at these programs and decide how to make them work. The goal is right however the implementation is not working. Trump claims to be a bman so make it work.

    Wrong. We need to eliminate these programs and let charity handle them. That's why charity exists and that is not why government exists.
