The GOP and the DNC are talking past each other on “the Middle Class.”
To the DNC, everyone working with their back instead of their brain is “Middle Class,” and those working with their brains are the “rich enemy of the working man.”
To the GOP, those working with their brain – yet not making zillions – are “Middle Class,” and it is they who pay the taxes that make the nation work.
We aren’t going to make much progress until these disparate definitions are recognized – and resolved – and we all are speaking the same language. That, of course, is a necessity in fixing our problems.
