Val Demings is trending on Twitter now largely because of the billboard on the tweet below. It is time for all Democratic candidates to blast their Republican opponents for the GOP’s radical scheme to steal your Social Security and Medicare. Republicans will be using the deficit as their excuse. A deficit they ballooned by passing a bill to fund tax cuts for the ultra-wealthy, and giant corporations, that boosted the deficit by over two trillion dollars.
“Republicans approve of the American farmer, but they are willing to help him go broke. They stand four-square for the American home — but not for housing. They are strong for labor — but they are stronger for restricting labor’s rights. They favor minimum wage — the smaller the minimum wage the better. They endorse educational opportunity for all — but they won’t spend money for teachers or for schools. They think modern medical care and hospitals are fine — for people who can afford them. They consider electrical power a great blessing — but only when the private power companies get their rake-off. They think American standard of living is a fine thing — so long as it doesn’t spread to all the people. And they admire of Government of the United States so much that they would like to buy it.”
I just sent Val Demings a contribution.
