Democrats abandon white working-class voters

Now that they weren’t able to nail President Trump with the Russia probe, the congressional Democrats have moved on to obsessing about and fixating on his tax returns. Meanwhile, they are almost totally silent about his budget proposal with big cuts to Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid. But they go on and on about how much we need to care about illegal immigrants and how we need to pay “reparations” because slavery existed in the 1800s.

Democrats used to care about the economic and financial struggles of the lower and middle classes. Now, you barely hear a sound from them about the problems faced by those who worked hard for their entire lives and tried to do the right things in life and now can’t afford to pay for the prescription medications and health care they need. The national Democrats seem to care more about getting the votes of all minorities and the future votes of illegal immigrants than they care about the rest of us.

They figure we have no one else who we can vote for, so all they have to do is pay a little lip service to our struggles while they constantly pander to and kiss the hind-ends of all minorities and illegal immigrants.
