  •  Right, like what "middle class"? It's all workers (5+ / 0-)

    struggling, wages stagnant, paying taxes of one sort or another. The GOP still don't get it that low-paid workers simply don't make enough to pay income taxes yet still pay a lot of other taxes and fees.

    It almost makes me laugh when they come on talking about poor people not paying taxes, not "having skin in the game." To poor people, such as myself now in my older years, we have left lots of skin along the way which they don't want to acknowledge, and it's not a game, it's life with lots of hardship and not an extra penny to spare but more where is the next penny coming from.

    "extreme concentration of income is incompatible with real democracy.... the truth is that the whole nature of our society is at stake." Paul Krugman
