HOW DOES SEN MIKE BRAUN REMAIN SO CALM?

Share

Sen Mike Braun calmly talks of “the process playing out,” while Trump works to ………….

 

 

 

……………………………..  destroy democracy, a pandemic rages, jobs disappear, mortgages foreclose, landlords evict, kids are hungry and two jobs will no longer keep a working family out of poverty.

How does Braun remain so calm? Because he’s insulated by great inherited wealth.

Rich boy draft deferments protected him from the stress of the Vietnam war. He’s never known the pressure of needing to find and hold a job to survive. He piously believes that keeping the minimum wage abysmally low protects poor people from the spiritual damage of being coddled.

Braun opposes Obama care, because it is unimaginable to him, that his family would ever lose their home to medical bills. Braun lives in a world where going hungry or having your utilities shut off for being unable to pay are vague unreal calamities that don’t happen to “good people.” He’s different from us. And, he doesn’t give a damn.
