The Democrats have had a lot of fun over the years, as they have portrayed themselves as the little guy. They act like the GOP is the party of rich people and pretend to have working-class people in mind. We have known that this is not true for some time now.
Now, we finally have the confirmation that we need. At long last, the Democrats can stop pretending that they have the best interests of the working man at heart. We have real, live data from the IRS that proves the point we have been trying to make this whole time.
“Democrats are the party of the wealthy, a flip from decades ago when it was the party of the poor and middle class.
Democrats have become a boutique party for the rich.
They don’t care about the average person.

Democrats represented 65% of taxpayers with a household income of $500,000 or more in 2020, according to IRS data, while 74% of taxpayers in Republican districts have household incomes of less than $100,000.
no longer the working class party. https://t.co/0n2zp1CYhQ

In 1993, the dynamic was reversed, with the typical Republican congressional district showing it was 14% wealthier than its Democratic counterpart. In 2020, data shows those Republican districts were now 13% poorer.
The data comes as some Democrats push to end former President Donald Trump’s 2017 tax law, which caps the federal deduction for state and local taxes at $10,000. The beneficiaries would predominantly be the 1% of the United States’s wealthiest households, with property owners in high-tax states benefiting from the relief on federal taxes,” the Washington Examiner shares.
This marks a major shift that is hard not to notice. The days of Democrats leaning on their working-class party reputation have come and gone. They need to start amending their messaging because what they are saying now is a pure lie.
“Democrats are the party of the wealthy & BLM founder bought a million-dollar mansion. These people lied that the socialist policies they push are for the people, but in reality, they make the little people equally poor while they make themselves rich,” said one astute tweeter. This is exactly what has happened.

People were tricked into offering donations all last year. These organizations look to prey on white guilt by telling people that they need to open their wallets if they want to be considered one of the woke ones. Next thing they know, the BLM founders are purchasing million-dollar homes and they are on social media crying foul.
It is now time for the GOP to embrace the new role that they have found themselves in. They are the new working-class party. This is how it has been for a while now but we can finally make it official. The days of conservatives being considered as wannabe rich people are over. The Democrats have taken over that mantle.
The stereotypes have persisted for far too long and we are here to put a stop to them. Someone needs to ask Kamala and Joe to explain themselves on this one. How can they continue to spread their obviously false message when we have all of the proof that we need?
It’s a question that may seem rhetorical but trust us….it is not. We cannot wait until these two are placed on the hot seat and asked to explain themselves. We’re just amazed that they were able to keep the lie intact for as long as they have. We are now waiting for the liberals to tell us that the Washington Examiner actually has it out for the Democrats in some way.
That’s what they do whenever they see news that they do not like. As for us conservatives, we are just glad that we have finally received the vindication that we are looking for. It will be interesting to see how this knowledge is used to our benefit once the midterm elections come around. Maybe this is the perfect turning point? It is going to be hard for liberals to pretend that the Democrats care about them even one iota at this point (unless they are rich!)
