Enemies of the working class

There are 16 states refusing the Affordable Care Act, and many (of these) states are former Confederacy slave states with poor economic stability and controlled by Republican governors and Republican state legislatures.

They are truly against Medicare, Medicaid, minimum wages and Social Security. The are enemies of the working class, fading our American dream with right to work states.

(It’s the Civil War all over again.)

Their priorities are hard to fathom in many aspects of their state budgeting processes, but it is especially alarming that they don’t care enough about the working class. By definition, poor neighborhoods end up with badly funded schools. South Carolina has too many broken families, single parents, domestic arrangements and males killing females. Many of our woes can be changed if we want to restore the American dream by beginning a path forward. These inequities exist because we condone them by our silence.

Our former Confederacy slave states are not separate sovereign countries; each one is part of a wonderful, great country -- at least they could be if they ever understand the concept of the “United States of America.”
