A sign in a photo posted on Rep. Jonathan Stickland’s Facebook page read: “Democrat — Because It’s Easier Than Working.”

Let me educate Rep. Stickland about this Democrat:

I worked my way through community college.

I worked in my field until I found my calling to become an educator.

I worked hard to earn my undergrad with honors and my master’s.

I work even harder at home as a wife and mother of two young children.

I work every single day for the students I love.

I’m a hard-working Democrat.

Seems you haven’t worked hard enough to see there are working people who just happen to have opposing views.
