Middle Class

Republican policies will help middle class Americans. Through competition in the public school system, restructuring the complicated tax code, and job creation, Republicans look to a brighter future for our middle class. We are a party that values hard work and equal opportunity. Under the Obama Administration, America has seen income inequality rise to unprecedented heights. We believe that our policies will bolster the middle class and put this country back on a path towards economic success.
