I originally saw this posted on Americablog. and needed to comment.
It is reports like this that led me to create this site. All too often Middle Class Americans are voting against their own best interests to satisfy some prejudice or some view on social issues. This report could not highlight this more clearly.
People are being led to the slaughter due to their own willful ignorance or backwards prejudice. The problem is for the rest of us who are pulled down with them. How many would really sacrifice their health care to stop the 16 year old across the street from having an abortion or stopping the Gay couple from marrying? In the end most people will gravitate toward self interest if they know all the facts. I am hoping to bring those facts to light in a simple understandable way that changes peoples perspectives before they vote.
