This week Republicans made a Pledge to America in a bid to win votes in the mid-term elections. The GOP promised to indulge the rich with tax breaks and penalize the middle class with rescinded health care benefits and eliminated regulations protecting workers. When Republicans ran Herbert Hoover, they pledged a “chicken in every pot.” They gave the U.S. the Great Depression instead. The most recent Republican president gave the U.S. the Great Recession, and the GOP has responded by downsizing its promise to America. This time it’s just an egg — a rotten egg hurled at the middle class.
