I want to applaud Matt Micheli, former chairman of Laramie County Republican Party, for his Jan. 21 op-ed, that tries to guide the his party out of its negative view of the world, by of course, bashing Democrats. His attempt can be commended, but just like all the GOP members across the country, and in Wyoming, he distorts the story to fit his “positive” narrative.

It is true prosperity is increasing in the developed world and people are being lifted out of poverty, just as was promised when working class Americans in the manufacturing industries were sold out in the Free Trade agreements hammered out under Reagan and Clinton. He attempts to claim that American workers are reaping the benefits of this worldwide expansion by using recent data instead of acknowledging that income inequality has increased while American wages have not kept up with inflation or productivity growth.
