You decide who really cares about middle class

August 13, 2013 12:00 am

President Barack Obama wants to rebuild bridges and roads and put Americans to work as we did after the Depression, and the Republicans want to kill the postal union and puts thousands out of work.

Those 30 “jobs” bills they passed, but the Senate shot down, gave generous tax cuts to corporations again. And the only bill that even mentions jobs is killing unions.

The Republicans are still trying to repeal Obamacare. Why are they so adamant about it? Under Obamacare, they will now have to pay for a portion of their own health care out of their own pockets! They really fought to keep the health industry involved for their campaign donations.

Obama wants to keep them and their hundreds of millions in executive bonus programs out of health care.

Who really cares about the middle class? You decide.

And take a good look at the bridges you travel over every day.
