for ignoring the Middle Class. They focused on the very rich and the very poor. Those two groups got taken care of. The rich got tax breaks, cheap labor and cheap money (super low interest rates, etc) and the poor got the Medicare expansion, extended unemployment and a bit of stimulus. The middle class got fuck all.
Nailed it. The "silent majority" middle class that got stuck paying for it all got off their duffs and went to the polls for a change.
My co-worker, who normally can't be bothered to go vote, got a notice that his ACA health insurance premium went from $300/mo to $1200 - higher than his mortgage payment. This time he voted, guess for who.
