    Never forget that the Bourgeoisie is the middle class, not the "rich," but the merchants and craftsman of the middle.

    The left has waged war against the middle class since the time of Karl Marx. All of the current talk about Obama's class warfare against the rich is a smokescreen, the war the left wages against America is a war to crush and obliterate the middle class.

    Ending the middle class is, and always has been, the primary goal of the left.

    They will grow the middle class, hence beating back the gains you fascists made under Obama. It's already happening. The Bourgeoisie is rebounding under Trump, the two tiered society you promote of a 1% elite ruling over an impoverished mass if faltering, despite the gains you made under Obama.

    You can show me the income gap widening is no longer happening? Liar. The middle class is paying more in taxes, bills, healthcare. And we are not getting raises. The middle class (blue collar) are still struggling. Can you show me things are getting better for them besides the antidotle stories about how some guys business picked up when illegals left?

    A fair assessment is probably this: Trump has done a little for the middle class, but he could be doing a lot more.

    "In the Heartland, they're looking for very immediate, tangible improvements in their day-to-day well-being. I'm not seeing that yet," says Peter Atwater, president of Financial Insyghts.

    Here's a rundown:

    1. His record on jobs. When it comes to jobs, Trump has added 317,000 in two full months so far. His pace of job gains is almost exactly the same as what happened last year under President Obama. It's early days, but the economy has yet to be turbocharged like Trump promised.

    2. His executive orders. Trump says he is saving the coal industry and enacting "Hire American" policies. He has signed several executive orders along those lines, but just about everyone -- even coal executives -- agree the coal jobs aren't coming back.

    3. His trade deals. Perhaps the biggest surprise in Trump's first 100 days is how much he has toned down on trade. Yes, his administration has already slapped tariffs on Canadian lumber, but he isn't ripping up NAFTA, the free trade agreement with Canada and Mexico that he says "destroyed" America.

    4. His tax plan. As promised, the White House tax plan includes cuts for middle and moderate income folks, but the rich and corporations get even more goodies. "The majority of the benefits go to high-income people,

    A typical middle class family would save about $1,000 on their taxes, according to a Tax Policy Center analysis of the tax plan Trump pitched on the campaign trail. In contrast, a family in the top 1% would save about $215,000 and family in the top 0.1% would save over $1 million.

    Not very impressive at all.

    You'll wish you had 80 months of job growth after the next Republican great recession. Don't blame Obummer.

    it's obummer's thing that failed. No democrat wants to make it better. Trump can't do shit about that until congress fixes it. but I digress.
