    Why does America think the GOP only cares for the Wealthy?

    Good question.

    When someone makes that accusation, I notice that most, if not all of those on the right on the USMB, defend that position instead of denying it. They will say, "Rich people are job creators" or "Rich people already pay too much" or "Why shouldn't rich people keep what they earn"? Or they bring up socialism or communism or some other wild accusation.

    But where do they talk about the Middle Class?

    Where are their policies to help the Middle Class?

    I know they ran on "jobs jobs jobs", but they also tell us that "government can't work" and "government doesn't create jobs". So what kind of help does that leave for the Middle Class? None?

    Is the GOP solution for helping the Middle Class, "Don't help the Middle Class"? I honestly can't think of a single GOP policy that isn't geared toward the rich. If there are GOP policies designed to help the American Middle Class, what are they? No one can seriously run on, "You are on your own".

    Middle class, scmiddle class. Why don't you attempt to succeed in live, vs. wallowing around in your piss all day. Nobody is stopping anyone from succeeding in America. Hell, if a dope like Sarah Palin can become a multi-millionaire, there's hope for even an idiot like you Dean.

    What does 'rich people' mean to you, but more importantly, to the Democratic Party?

    I have been asking that question for months, and still haven't had a difinitive answer.

    Would one of these brilliant Liberals please tell us - at what point is one rich? Can you provide an annual income level / a baseline that draws the line between middle class and rich?

    Thanks...

    Why does rdean presuppose what America thinks?
    The real good question should be, "Why does rdean think the GOP only cares for the wealthy while the Dems do not?".

    No, the question should be, "When will RDean think?"

    John McCain says it's someone making 5 million a year. Does that work for you?

    So the answer so far is "screw the middle class"?
