14. Well

 

that is the reason this President needs to keep active with the voters and get them involve. The said Congressman, Tom Coleman, works for all voters in his District, and not just any of the Top two percent, if there are that many in his District of Oklahoma.

Look, this is just a matter of educating people and especially in a lot of these red districts. It is historically, the oldest trick in the book, some wealthy people have played. A lot of the Republicans' constituents, just don't have the same interests as the Top two percent, Boehner is protecting. That is why the Republicans need to race bait. If you take that cloak away, then people will see where their interests, really lie. Take Social Security and Medicare for example. When those people, on the lower end of the scale, realize, Boerhner is talking about raising their taxes, just to save millionaires or even people making over $250,000, that is essentially committing suicide, just so they can keep their wealthy life styles. The language, just have to be simplified. You also notice Mitch McConnell criticized Obama about going back to the voters. McConnell doesn't want the President to go around him and talk directly to his constituents.
