Well Said, In So Few Words


From DailyKos today:

What are the rank-and-file Republicans doing? They have nothing to run on. Repeal and replace Obamacare? Red state residents are benefiting tremendously from healthcare reform. Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker is the only presidential candidate so far who has put forth a repeal-and-replace proposal. He’d like to go back to the old days of legal insurance fraud against the middle class.

Republicans like Jeb Bush want to raise the retirement age and reduce Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid benefits. In other words, they are telling the middle class and the poor that they will break these national commitments in order to maintain a plutocracy that owns a bigger and bigger piece of the pie every day. They are willing to break the promise that lifted millions out of poverty.

It will never cease to amaze me how much support today’s Republican Party gets from the middle and lower classes.  Their entire objective is to drive those classes into the ground.  So, how do Republicans do it …

In other words, none of their policies will resonate with 50 percent plus one of the electorate. So what is their answer? Fear and hate. Can America fall for fear and/or hate again?
