E. The referent of "it", aka the plight, is clear. Imply is much better than infer.

E -- by starting you imply ... not infer and the pronoun should be it (plight)

Before I start, here's something about whether to choose imply or infer
The meanining of imply: " to involve or indicate by inference, association, or necessary consequence rather than by direct statement " while infer is "suggest, hint" -- souce, webster-merriam online dictionary.
However, far as CR is concerned, infer has another meaning: "to derive as a conclusion from facts or premises "

Anyway, we should use infer here, since the Democrat is suggesting that the Republicans are not concerned at all about the plight of the poor
I'll go with (D), (B) modifies the poor, which isn't what we want. (D) uses the pronoun 'it', which should modify plight.
