What ways are the middle a/k/a middling class a higher grade of, even the glorified poor?

This is something the rich never pay, but it keeps the bank running, protecting their wealth. Used. Donald Trump told us...he works hard to not pay taxes. Middle class can't do that. So, while we need money to run this country-- roads, airwaves, hospitals, schools, military,etc...the rich have Cayman Island and tax loopholes, middle class pays to make up for their dereliction of duty. This is why Buffet said his secretary pays more taxes than he does. Its a country, not a country club! And that includes Bernie Sanders, who pays 13% on 200k. The poor?

And anyone who would like to live on poor peoples wages, thinking they have such a good deal...have at it! Yes, the middle class and poor have a common enemy....a system rigged against them.

When Obamacare passed it began life with a high approval rating. Once the GOP propaganda juggernaut kicked into high gear (along with some amazing, but temporary Dem incompetence), that approval rating tanked and stayed that way until the GOP tried to repeal it. Today, Obamacare is well...
