I am in a politics class this summer and I am just so dumbfounded by everything I'm learning. This isn't a new question I have, but I have been wondering for a long time, and now I have a large group I can ask!
So, poor (or even middle class) republicans, (especially in the south) why are you ok voting against your own economic interests? Why would you be against a tax increase for the very wealthy? Why do you want more cooperate tax breaks? Why are you against raising minimum wage? These things would a positive in your life...so why are you against them??
