14. Wow. Just wow

Sometimes we forget this. The Republican party has, since the early 20th century, been the party of the rich and of big business. That is what they really care about - making rich people even richer. Democrats need to be more like Truman, and tell the TRUTH about Republicans.

Republicans have controlled both houses of Congress AND the Presidency only three times in history - in the early 1920's, leading up to the Depression; in the George W. Bush years, leading up to the Recession; and in the first two years of Trump's presidency. There's a reason why they were booted out of office each time - when they have total control, the results are disastrous. They lost the presidency for 20 years after the Depression. They lost the House, Senate, and the Presidency after George W. They were creamed in 2018 and lost the House after Trump's bumbling first two years.

Democrats never learn how to play hard ball. They should be out there screaming from the rooftops that Republican policies are disasters. All they care about is cutting taxes for the rich - the only major legislation passed under Trump was the tax cut bill. They want to starve the US treasury and grab all the dough they can, and they've conned the poor religious deplorables into doing their dirty work for them.
