Salena Zito is onto something. Again. This week, she opened her article by writing that “Jason Vogel is fired up to vote. He says his passion crystallized two weeks ago when he saw just how chaotic Washington would be if the Democrats seized power in Congress.”

Later in the article, she wrote this about Vogel:

The 40-year-old union steward for the local Teamsters 397 says he became motivated to vote for Kelly when he realized everything important to him is being championed by President Trump and is on Kelly’s ballot: “The Second Amendment, trade, job creation and keeping a good economy going, that comes to a daily fight if the Republicans lose the midterms,” he said. “A lot of my friends feel the same way. We ask ourselves, ‘Why would you vote Democrat?’ Our lives certainly weren’t better under their way of doing business.”

If Republicans focus on nothing else, they should focus on this. Americans’ lives were worse during the Obama administration. More people were on welfare. Economic growth was pathetic. Wages were stagnant. The fossil fuel industry was literally targeted for extinction. Manufacturing wasn’t a priority, either.

What part of that sounds like a prosperity machine. I don’t want to see an America where people ‘get by’. I want to live in an America where everyone flourishes. America won’t flourish under Democratic control of any part of Congress. That’s why I’m predicting Republicans keeping control of both houses of Congress.
