This Democrat Is Waging War On The Middle Class, But Voters Still Remember When He Promised To “Rebuild It”
NRCC | February 5, 2014

BarberAdBack in 2012, in his first campaign ad, titled “Seen,” Arizona Democrat Ron Barber declared he would “rebuild our middle class.”

Ron even staged this shot of himself flipping through a legal pad in some fancy building in downtown Tucson, looking like he really, really cares about jobs.

“I saw how we could create jobs,” he said, “and how government can get in the way.”

Only problem is Ron’s actions aren’t matching his words. He doing just the opposite in Congress – engaging in a War on the Middle Class:

  • Ron Barber supports ObamaCare. Yesterday the non-partisan Congressional Budget Office released a report that forecasts ObamaCare’s disastrous effect on the economy in the next few years.  According to the CBO, ObamaCare will push 2 million American workers out of the labor market by 2017 – even more than that by 2024.
  • A new study by the Brookings Institution found that ObamaCare will reduce the incomes of middle class families. Their report showed that ObamaCare will diminish the incomes of Americans making between $21,000 and $40,000 a year by 0.9 percent. Similarly, families earning between $40,000 and $65,000 and between $65,000 and $104,000 will also see a 0.9 percent decrease, a reduction no family can afford in the current dismal economic state.
