Make no mistake

Listen carefully, if you are not earning in the top 10%, the Republican Party does not care about you. See Trump’s budget FY2018, see the Republican proposed TrumpCare.

If all the races with the same earning power realized this… perhaps a party BY and FOR the people could be formed.
Hear me again and then never speak to me, unfriend me, unfollow me (I am superb with that) the Republican Party does not have your best interest at heart. 

 As of 2015, the base salary for a House or Senate member is $174,000. As far as leadership , the Senate Majority and Minority Party Leaders earn $193,400. The Speaker of the House earns $223,500. The House Majority and Minority Leaders earn $193,400.

THE MEDIAN TWO PERSON INCOME IN THE UNITED STATES IS $52,526.

Sit with this.

What do you have in common with a seventy year old man who has a healthy pension and great healthcare when he retires? ( In 2014, the average pension for a Congressman under the Civil Service Retirement Plan was $72,000 a year. ) Nevermind the 401OK plan he has fattened his pockets with. 

At least the Democratic Party puts on a better show of saying they do care. Bernie Sanders… will always have my heart and vote.
