REALITY CHECK: Trump and Pence Would Make America Great…for Billionaires

WASHINGTON - October 04, 2016 -

"Donald Trump proclaiming he is for the middle-class doesn't pass my smell test. He will help only himself and his billionaire friends. Mike Pence is cut out of the same cloth. He has supported enormous and extreme tax cuts for the wealthy and voted to keep the federal minimum wage at $5.15 and hour. He also championed a proposal to cut Medicare, school lunches, and other basic programs for hard-working families. I want a President who understands and works for all Americans, not just the wealthiest 1%. Hillary Clinton and Tim Kaine will develop economic policies that work for everyone." – Julie Friedmann, Adult Education Educator, Jefferson County, CO
