Working Families

with 2 comments

How do you define working families?  If you believe the democratic party mouth pieces you are a working family only if:

  • You belong to a union
  • Vote Democratic
  • Have a household annual income that does not exceed $60,000

To me a working family can easily be defined to include a household whereby one or more of the members of the house are employed.  It doesn’t matter what neighborhood you live in, the cars you own, the amount of money you earn or where your kids go to school.  The democratic party wants you to believe that they are concerned about the welfare of the working family, what they don’t tell you is that if you earn more than $60K-$70K that you are part of the “rich” families. 

 I work full time, have no debt other than my home mortgage, my daughter goes to a private school and I earn greater than the $100,000 per year.  I resent the implication that I don’t work.  I work my tail off to provide for my family and am somehow not considered working.   Wake up Oregon let’s rally for change in the “right” direction.

  1. I believe the intent of your post was to show how crazy the political speak has become. The democrats are trying to create class warfare between those have been more fortunate in life and those that have had to work a little harder to break even.

    If we keep up with the current pace of socialistic behavior coming out of Washington, we won’t have to worry about the label of working families. We will all be poor families.

  2. My daughter is studying the fall of Rome and in one section it talked about the ruling party giving out “welfare” to the lower class. History is repeating itself and before long the incentive to work will be all but gone.
