1. Capital/Raw Materials
As such capitalists need to remember that their luxurious lifestyle would not be possible without workers and consumers to support such a lifestyle. Therefore they all should help one another. It is not that the wealthy are exclusively important and the people who do the work should be treated like dirt and beat down in the ground. Rather, their interests need to be taken into consideration. It is not that you give everything to the wealthy and let them trickle down as little as possible. That is one point.
The next point is that although Democrats have glaring flaws, it appears that compared to Republicans, they will at least make some attempt at trying to do concrete things that would make it possible for the middle class to improve their condition. I have made mention of three things, proposing legislation that would give student loan consumers the opportunity to refinance their loans at a lower rate, proposing free community college, and proposing an extension of unemployment benefits to workers displaced by the recession. All three of those things would help the middle class, and all three have been opposed by Republicans. While they have opposed these things, they have led the effort to pass legislation that allows creditors to garnish the wages of debtors who owe them money. There are people who have lost better paying jobs through no fault of their own, and who have had to accept lower paying jobs, that have been affected adversely by this measure that Republicans made strong efforts to have enacted into law. Therefore, when these things are taken into consideration, one can make the case that Republicans appear to be hostile to the interests of the middle class.
