The Stupidest Thing GOP Leaders Have Done Lately? Threaten to Take Away Middle Class Overtime Pay

I fear that the republican base will roll over while Paul Ryan and his colleagues do whatever they can to serve their corporate masters. Trump’s popularity makes me doubt the economic savvy of any republican voter, they will let themselves be swayed by perceived religious slights or racist propaganda and vote for the lawmakers who will take away their economic possibilities or opportunities. If Trump supporters think that Trump will pave the way for more economic opportunity, then I have a bridge in Brooklyn to sell them, Trump is part of the problem not the solution. He has nothing in common with your average voter, he hasn’t the least idea of what it means to live decades existing from paycheck to paycheck, he may have survived 4 bankruptcies but those were business bankruptcies, he never put his own money on the line and at this point we have no idea what his real value amounts to, it is all speculative or tied up in his brand and that is subjective, until we see his tax return, his wealth is a mystery. I hope the democrats can take this fight over overtime pay and drive home the point that they are trying to fight for middle America. This is an excellent place to drive the point home with voters everywhere, overtime pay is no laughing matter.
