The realization of the Progressive Agenda ─ healthcare for all, free college tuition, adequate funding for public schools, infrastructure building and repair, etc. ─ presupposes a solvent government with sufficient revenue to fund it. In other words, "How are we going to pay for it?"
Don't be bamboozled by politicians who promise all things to all people without having a realistic way to pay for what they promise.
Mitch McConnell’s claim that “elections are term limits”, also supported by some Democratic candidates, is specious at best and disingenuous at worst! If elections were term limits, Mitch McConnell and his ilk would not be in congress for decades ─ mostly undermining our Democracy and its institutions.
Given the corrupt influence of Citizens United and Republican gerrymandering practices, the time has come for constitutionally-mandated, Rational “Soft” Term Limits.
Our revolving-door political system, has been hijacked by special interests through the use of armies of lobbyists who spend vast sums of money to buy influence from countless politicians and their staffs in order to protect their interests.
Our national sovereignty, our Democratic institutions and our electoral system are in danger from foreign intervention but, for self-serving political reasons, Republicans refuse to do their patriotic duty.
A president who is hollowing out our State Department and our Democratic institutions while denouncing the FBI, the Justice Department and the free press has to be gotten rid of a.s.a.p.!
It's time to reform our judicial system to prevent any future, Putin-like, tyrannical president or politician from undermining our Democratic institutions.
