Recent Immigrant Unlocks the Secret to US Politics

I was explaining to some recent refugees the basics of US politics, and I said that Democrats wanted more taxes and more government programs (I gave the example of Medicaid, since they had all been on that Medicaid at one time or another) and the Republicans, who wanted less taxes and less government programs.

The refugees thought for a little bit about which party to support (they all work, so they all see taxes taken out of their paychecks), and finally one young woman figured out how to bridge the partisan gap of American politics.

“We need to have more Medicaid and less taxes!”

Who says immigrants don’t assimilate?
