Unfortunately, there are millions of Americans that are suffering. And the republicans have learned that if you tell this growing group of downtrodden that you will solve their problems, they will vote for you, despite the mountains of evidence that demonstrate that the republican’s policies will hurt these people even more, and transfer gigantic sums of money from those with less to the very rich. In other words, the republicans depend on American’s stupidity.
