To the editor: The Occasions printed a letter suggesting that Trump voters are rational of their assist for the previous president. The writer acknowledged that America isn’t working for many individuals and that the important thing points for voters are revenue inequality and the unfair tax code.
In that case, why would a rational individual assist former President Trump and the Republican Get together?
The Trump administration and the Republican Congress handed an enormous tax minimize for the wealthy and for companies. Additionally, they tried to overturn the Reasonably priced Care Act, and refusing to broaden Medicaid to extra susceptible Individuals has been a GOP purpose for years.
Add to that their hostility to different social applications, and it is clear that few rational voters really consider that Trump helps any type of accountable security internet for many who want one, or that he would significantly attempt to alleviate revenue inequality.
One ought to look elsewhere for explanation why an individual would assist the previous president. Given the recognition of QAnon and theories in regards to the sinister “deep state” or January sixth being an inside job, I believe a lot of the solutions are within the irrational realm.

To the editor: One letter author urged that Trump supporters are much less nervous about undermining democracy than they’re about their very own prospects as the federal government panders to the billionaire class.
Excuse me, however it’s the Republican Get together that caters to the billionaire class.
