Are Republicans and Democrats all the same?
You hear that expression a lot these days. And it’s
usually uttered by someone who is claiming to be equally disenchanted with both
parties. "The politicians are all alike", they’ll tell you.
But it’s not true. To believe so is to ignore reality.
The worst thing the Democrats did — the far-and-away biggest complaint from most
Republicans — was try to fix the American health care system by
protecting the most vulnerable Americans first.
The Dems have also tried to protect workers’ rights and keep the air
and water clean. They’re trying to make college more affordable and
end predatory lending practices. They’ve fought to make our financial
systems safer and to improve public education.
The Republicans have fought it all.
If you’ve been told that’s two sides of the same coin, there’s a con man holding

||Today, the Republican
party, that holds its support by scaring the hell out of conservative voters
with fairytales about Big Government Spending, Christian persecution,
abortion clinics on every corner and scary brown people, as they
simultaneously sell out voters to major corporations.
Meanwhile Republicans passed the 2018 TAX CHANGE
SCAM that increased the National Debt by $1.5 TRILLION ! (
which 100% of Democrats voted against)
Oh, sure, racism was a big factor in attracting the brain dead dopes who put
Trump signs in front of their trailers and cheered at rallies. But it was
the greed of the wealthy Republicans that allowed
it all to happen.
Every policy decision, every bill, every position they take — it’s all
predicated on someone somewhere getting more money. Greed is at the root of
everything the GOP does.
A recently House-passed bill, which seems likely to
pass in the Senate, could mark President Trump's first veto in office. ##
