WASHINGTON — Democrats are turning to one of the internet’s most time-honored traditions in their efforts to break Republican unity over the fiscal cliff negotiations: they’re trolling the GOP.
The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee Tuesday launched their new @MidClassHostage twitter handle as part of their broader effort to hammer the GOP over Republicans opposition to tax hikes for the wealthy, and promptly began trolling Republicans by name.
“We’ll use every method we can to get out the message that House Republicans are holding the middle class hostage to their demands of more tax breaks for millionaires,” DCCC spokesman Jesse Ferguson said.
“This new twitter account gives voice to the middle class who want House Republicans to give up their hostage taking and protect them from the fiscal cliff.”
