Of course this is how the Democrats wish to portray the GOP. Unfortunately for most poor Democrats, the Democrat Party really is the party of the poor, especially when it comes to keeping them poor. Democrat Party ideology seems particulary drawn to maintaining various social status quos vis a vis "rich" and "poor". What most registered Democrats of the rank and file don't realise, is that thier party (that of the KKK in the 1920's)is still that same party, only repackaged to appear sympathetic to the various minorities they wish to retain as vote fodder.
The GOP on the other hand doesn't cater to the poor by always giving a handout while keeping the status quo. Ideologically the GOP would rather everyone be able to become rich through thier own means withou government handouts, which merely create dependencies.
