Will someone please help me understand why Hillary Clinton has been dubbed the "Working Class Heroine?" What about her life makes her a champion for the working class? Nothing about her campaign is about the working class!
For starters, she and her husband have claimed $109.2 MILLION in income over the past 6 years or so. I'll never ask an obese person for advice on how to diet, I'll never ask a socialist to teach me about free market capitalism, and I'll never ask someone who has made $109.2 million in their life to explicate the plight of the American working class. Does Hillary really know how hard it is to pay $40 a week for gas? Does she really now how hard it is to pay for health insurance? Does she know how ridiculously impossible it is to sign up for government welfare programs? Does she really know how sucky it is to have a college education, yet only make 24k a year?
Let me explain why I am wary of Hillary Clinton. One of her strongest base of voters is uneducated, white, unionized middle class workers. Wow! Let me tell you, if I could choose a substantial block of voters I don't want choosing the leader of our country, it would be the uneducated, union workers who think the gas tax holiday will really save them money. There isn't a group in America who does more disservice to the country than those who could have, but chose not to go to college, instead shortchanging the economy by forming and joining unions, and expecting "corporate America" to fund their bad decisions through increased taxes. She isn't the champion of the working class. She is the champion of the vulnerable, gullible, entitled-to-the-free-American-dream class.
And finally, how can someone who inserted 281 pork barrel projects, totaling nearly $300 million funded by federal tax dollars, honestly claim they care about the working class of America at large. Give me a break!
So if anyone out there can please show me where I'm wrong, I'll be happy to reconsider my opinions.
