Republicans are not the people’s party | News, Sports, Jobs


Let’s put that into perspective: 610 billionaires created in the first two years of the pandemic under President Trump and only 69 billionaires created the year before.

Companies got Trump’s 22% tax break. The richest 2% of American companies have $310 trillion in cash. Online sports betting was expecting $26 billion in Super Bowl wagers.

Last year, online casinos and betting in Pennsylvania brought in $1.4 billion, resulting in

$36 million in taxes for education in Pennsylvania and represents 3.7% of the state budget.

More math: 7.5% of $100 is $7.50 more for every cent you spend. Gas costs $3.00 per gallon. The gas goes up 20 cents a gallon and you buy 15 gallons of gas, the price goes up $3.00 for a full one.

President Biden‘s child tax credit based on previous year’s income, without the vote of a single Republican representative, has helped families receive the year-end tax credit/refund during of the year when they needed it the most.

Not a single Republican Representative would extend the credit for a year to help lift children out of poverty.

Not a single Republican voted for high-speed internet for rural America.

Now that Democrats have provided funds, Republicans are front and center in the media, claiming plans for success and expansion.

The Republican Party claims to be the party of the people, Which people?

Or are they just a party that is only servants of the rich?
