12. The economy might be "strong" (i.e. low unemployment) but wages are still mostly stagnant despite

promises by Republicans that the last round of tax cuts (IIRC the sixth since 1981) for the wealthy would boost pay for middle-income earners.

Dems need to hammer this point, as well as the fact that these tax cuts will have to be paid for eventually. This isn't "free" money, and the Republicans would love to cut entitlement spending to pay for big handouts to the rich. It's part of the GOP's decades-long mission to destroy Medicaid and Social Security.
