The Gateway Pundit reported on April 27 that for years, Democrats have presented themselves as the party of the middle class, standing up for the little guy. That hasn’t been the case for a long time, and now it’s being backed up. According to the Internal Revenue Service (IRS), Democrats are now the party of the rich, and decades ago, the Democratic Party, which represented the poor and the middle class, is heaven and earth.
IRS data show that in 2020, 65 percent of households represented by Democrats will have an annual income of $500,000 or more, while 74 percent of households in Republican districts will have an annual income of less than $100,000.
In 1993, the situation was reversed, with the typical Republican congressional district being 14 percent richer than the corresponding Democratic district. 2020 data shows that Republican districts are 13 percent poorer than before.
Republicans must now accept the reality that the new role of the Republican Party is to represent the working class.
