Obama actually passed a middle class tax cut that was for the middle class. Obama did NOT forget those who others had left behind. He instituted the first every national health care over enormous opposition, established the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau that Elizabeth Warren initially proposed and shepherded through Congress, and tried to enact numerous other policies for middle class relief that were obstructed by RepubliCONs, including to protect veterans, to enact incentives for DOMESTIC job creation (and penalties for off-shoring) and more.
Trump spoke about the “forgotten man” in his inaugural rant, but his policies show that he was only going to remember billionaires, donors, Wall $treet hedge fund managers and corporate CEOs and investors. His tax cut was 100% for billionaires and corporations who already had the most, while allowing more take home pay in workers weekly/biweekly/monthly pay checks that was subtracted from the refunds that would be reduced or eliminated and paid back in taxes owed.
Workers who suckered for the Trump lie — you were warned and did not listen.
Those who did listen get my heartfelt sympathy.
