Default Daniel likes hard work, too bad his party finds it passe.

First of all Daniel is spot on about Trump and now that Romney isn't going to the Trump extravaganza I am sure he is thrilled.

The problem I have with his ode to hard work ( as valid as it may be ) is that there is little interest in his party when it comes to rewarding it. Calls to remove/reduce the minimum wage are constant on his side of the aisle, reducing or eliminating capital gains, removing regulations on worker safety, flat tax, supply-side nonsense and other charming policy positions of the right reduce the actual value of work.

The republican tendency is to throw more money and power at the rich and powerful at the expense of the average hard working american. They actually have no real interest in american workers and would love to not have to deal with them at all. American consumers are all well and good, for now, but workers ( hard working or otherwise ) are a problem to be avoided if possible.
