Re "Middle class is under attack" (Forum, Aug. 11): Hedrick Smith eloquently described the attack on the Middle Class. It is an attack that is rapidly destroying the average American and resulting in an economy of lords and serfs. It is an attack being carried out by Republicans in Congress.
I don't know what kind of people think that millions of Americans should be without health insurance even though Obamacare offers an affordable solution.
I don't know what kind of people think we should cut off unemployment insurance and reject jobs programs even though the unemployment rate exposes there are not enough jobs available.
I don't know what kind of people vote to cut or eliminate nutritional programs even though it means millions of children will go hungry.
I only know that these people bear the label of Republicans and the attack on the American people in which they are engaged is truly obscene.
