Obviously there are differences between the Democrats and Republicans but under both parties, the working class have been shat on. When you see the Obama administration bail out the banks and fail to prosecute a single Wall Street executive for crashing the global economy, what do you think goes through the mind of the people the Democrats are supposed to represent?
63% of Americans cannot afford a $1,000 emergency in the richest country on the face of the Earth. While the ACA has protected people with pre-existing conditions, it was effectively written by Big Pharma and contains little to no cost controls. The price of insurance has sky rocketed and people have bankrupted themselves trying to pay for medical bills.
The Obama administration expanded the Bush wars and made the Bush tax cuts permanent. Just this year, 16 Democrat senators voted in a bill to decrease regulation in the banking industry, barely 10 years after crashing the global economy.
You seem to be under the impression that I am comparing the Dems vs. Rs directly, no. I am saying that the quality of life for your average American under both administrations continue to worsen despite what should be clear ideological differences between the two parties.
The Democratic party has been hostage to the ruling class for too long which has pushed progressive voices further and further away. At one point, the Obama had a super majority in the Senate yet as I said before, bailed the banks out and did not prosecute a single Wall Street exec. Further, he passed a right-wing healthcare plan which was effectively co-authored by Big Pharma. The Democrats could have introduced universal healthcare and declared an amnesty on student debt and loans but they didn’t and won’t ever because their donors don’t want it.
