It's clearly an exaggeration to say that everything the Democrats touch crashes and burns. Most of the wealthiest and most prosperous areas of the United States are run by Democrats. And many of the poorest areas are run by Republicans.
If you look at a list of the 50 counties with the lowest median household income, more than 45 of those counties are in conservative states.
That is BS and you know it. Here a family of 4 can get by on 40-50K a year try that in NY, California or other democrat infested state. It doesn't matter how much you make if it is not enough to live on.
