How can the Republican Party blame President Obama for causing class warfare? Remember the GOP is the party that has been fighting to take rights away from average people. Republicans are the union busters, minimum wage busters, equal pay for women busters, and destroy Medicare and Social Security busters.
The median income of 99% of the lowest wage earners in America has been declining over the years while CEO income has risen to approximately 250 times the lowest corporate wage.
Each time the Republicans cut taxes it hurts the middle to lower income families. If we don’t keep taxes coming in at a fair rate, what happens? Fees, fees, fees are what you get instead. Many older people say that they don’t want to pay for schools because they don’t have kids anymore. If we don’t all pay for things like schools through our taxes, the burden would fall just on parents of school-age children. Today parents have to pay more school fees because we all are not paying our fair share of taxes. This is just one example of fees that have risen substantially because of cuts in tax rates and loopholes for the rich. The rich need to pay their fair share which today they are not doing.
Who started class warfare? Not President Obama; it started the day Reagan busted the air traffic controllers’ union. It started when the GOP began making the unions for teachers, government employees, police and rescue workers the bad guys.
Our government is made up of everyday people like you and me. They are not the enemies; they are our neighbors, relatives and friends.
