  •  Good for you senator... (9+ / 0-)

    but it's not just the middle class we must stand up for. How about the lower class, or working class?

    •  I get irked by all this (9+ / 0-)

      "protecting the middle class" stuff, too. It's like talking about working and lower class interests is the new third rail (clearly, social security isn't the third rail anymore). I'll give the Senator the benefit of the doubt and assume the emphasis on middle class protections is short hand for securing democracy by preserving and broadening a stable, strong and vibrant middle class. The broader the middle class, the smaller and therefore less powerful the rich become. The broader the middle class, the closer we can come to eliminating poverty, too. I hope that when he talks about protecting middle class interests, this is what the Senator means.
