    Romney has already said "Less Police, less firemen and less teachers".

    Banks were making 6 billion a year off college loans until Obama stopped it. Romney said he wants to return to that.

    USMB GOP can deny it all they want, but during the Bush years, millions of jobs were moved to China. Much of that movement paid for by Bush tax cuts. Many people were only employed because they had to train Chinese workers brought over here to learn American jobs.

    So what do Republicans offer the middle class? Every time they say, "Broaden the tax base", they mean move the burden to the middle class and the poor.

    When Republicans say, "The rich pay a lot now" it's because they own everything. The can buy politicians who change laws and deregulate so the illegal becomes merely unethical.

    So once again, what do Republicans offer the middle class?

    So tired of the name calling without any serious answer. It could be it's all they have.

    25 House-Passed Jobs Bills Stuck in the Democratic-Run Senate | Speaker.gov

    372 Bills That Have Been Passed by the House & Not Yet

    rdean, what have the Democrats done for the Middle Class? How have the helped with Jobs? How have they helped the Economy?

    Please enlighten us :eusa_whistle: -- welfare programs do not count, people want to work and have a vibrant economy, not welfare programs (well maybe a few deadbeats want more welfare programs...lol..)

    The only things Democrats have done is make the poor and middle class more dependent on Government.

    The Republican party offers everyone, not just the Middle Class the opportunity to stand up and take care of yourself. If you're down and out, TEMPORARY help is available. We don't want you to stay on food stamps forever. Generational Food Stamp recipients are just slaves to the system.

    We offer you the opportunity to take pride in your accomplishments and will HELP you along the way. Nope we won't do it for you, you have to do it on your own.

    It's kinda weird but Harry Truman one of the most unusual politicians of all time - he spoke the truth plainly - summed up the republicans long ago and with minor change his words still fit. Now ask yourself the existential question - how in the hell does anyone vote republican?

    "Republicans approve of the American farmer, but they are willing to help him go broke. They stand four-square for the American home -but not for housing. They are strong for labor - but they are stronger for restricting labor's rights. They favor minimum wage - the smaller the minimum wage the better. They endorse educational opportunity for all - but they won't spend money for teachers or for schools. They think modern medical care and hospitals are fine - for people who can afford them. They consider electrical power a great blessing - but only when the private power companies get their rake-off. They think American standard of living is a fine thing - so long as it doesn't spread to all the people. And they admire of Government of the United States so much that they would like to buy it." Harry S. Truman

    "Well, I have been studying the Republican Party for over 12 years at close hand in the Capital of the United States. And by this time, I have discovered where the Republicans stand on most of the major issues." Truman Library - Public Papers of the Presidents: Harry S. Truman
