Senate Democrats Plan To Put Republicans On The Wrong Side Of The Middle Class

Senate Democrats Plan To Put Republicans On The Wrong Side Of The Middle Class

Senate Democrats are preparing an aggressive legislative agenda to complement the vision President Obama outlined in his State of the Union Address. The goal is to test the idea that the public supports an agenda of aggressive federal action on behalf of the middle class, and that Republicans are locked in a pattern of reactionary opposition, even to popular policies.

The push is premised on the notion that the country has turned the corner on the fights over deficits and the size of government, and that keeping issues of equity and opportunity for the middle class at the center of the national debate will redound to Democrats’ political benefit, either by breaking the GOP or by putting them on the wrong side of public opinion.

......................

“It’s a priority for us to act on some kind of Romney…I mean Buffett rule this year,” Schumer said, faking a slip-of-the-tongue. “The payroll tax debate has shown Republicans there is a price to be paid for opposing middle class people on issues of tax fairness.”

3. "Plan to show that Republicans are on the wrong side"

 

would be more accurate.

Democrats aren't forming the (R) policies. This is all on them.
