Big money is solidly behind the Democrats.
Yep, Democrats are the party of the rich and no longer the party of the middle class.

Number Two: Working class folk have been thrown back to going to the ER for medical care thanks to the Republican manipulations which involved destroying as much of the ACA as possible and offering no plan of their own to replace it.

Putin's Mitch won't let a single piece of legislation onto the floor of the Senate. The republicans new motto is "Healthcare? Over your dead body, you'll get healthcare!" The KGOP - making social security go defunct as quickly as we can! But hey - at least the upper 1% got their tax cuts.
Uh, low-income Americans are the ones who could not afford healthcare in the first place, so the mandate affected them. Was it THAT hard to figure out? Of course it wasn't.

Regardless of what the Republicans subsequently did, the dems still passed what was deemed by the Supreme court to be a massive tax increase.

Really, you don't have to post. You can just read, research and learn. At least you should probably do that BEFORE you post.

I dont think you know what the national debt actually is if you think Obama specifically added 9 trillion to it.

Of course Trump is happy to put trillions more debt on the national credit card too on top of it
That's some up-side-down view !!!

No fund can survive or grow when congress robs it every year !!!
Increasing the tax or adding new workers is only giving congress more to rob !!!

Republican have been the ones not wanting to continue SS as it is !!!

Mandating people buy health insurance was the biggest affront to personal freedom in the history of this country and a metaphorical slap in the face to anyone who isn't a gov't leech.

It boils down to nothing more than Republicans encouraging and assisting business and working class while Democrats breast feed the indignant.
I think you mean the "indigent" (meaning destitute, penniless, impoverished), but your basic premise is correct.

Blaming Obama for the bush recession and tax cuts he didn't pay for. Typical right wing nonsense

Yet Republicans are the ones giving the biggest tax cuts to billionaires. Crazy
