Backbone of society

To the Editor:

I think I’ve finally figured out our political system and how it really works now that all the squabbling is going on over the fiscal cliff and what each party wants to do vs. the “other” guys.

Here is my view: The Democrats want to take from the rich and give to the poor; the Republicans want to take from the poor and give to the rich. And while all this is going on, the middle class doesn’t even get kissed; we just have to pay for it all.

One thing all these politicians need to remember is the middle class is the backbone of our society. Destroy that backbone, as both political parties seem to be trying to do, and our society will fall apart.
