Failing to Reach Into the Red
Great opinion piece in the New York Times: Living Poor, Voting Rich.
One of the Republican Party’s major successes over the last few decades has been to persuade many of the working poor to vote for tax breaks for billionaires. Democrats are still effective on bread-and-butter issues like health care, but they come across in much of America as arrogant and out of touch the moment the discussion shifts to values.
How can this get fixed?
