^ Plenty of teachers, plumbers, carpenters and electricians support the Republican party on their own. It's just the big union machines that support the shady Democrats because they do their bidding for them.

The Dems certainly get big money from corporations. Don't kid yourself thinking they don't.

Amazon over $1.2 million to Dems in 2016.

Donald Trump gave CEO's massive tax cuts, gave corporations massive tax cuts, and totally abolished all taxes on wealthy CEO's estates.

Can you explain how both parties cater to the rich?

Unions use to have major economic power and influence both major parties.

Today corporations have far surpassed them in both parties.

Democrats want to raise the corporate tax rate from 21% to 25%.
https://www.bloomberg.com/news/artic...s-are-planning

Democrats want to increase the Estate Tax to 77% (the Estate Tax is paid by billionaires children.)
https://theweek.com/articles/820940/case-estate-tax


How is raising the corporate tax rate and taxing CEO billionaires children at 77% a favor for corporations?

If the politicians now spend all their time chasing big money, blame McClutcheon v. FEC.

Hahaha!!! That's funny! They killed unions 20 years ago. Big labor (and a healthy middle class) are a thing of the past.
