Upcoming Democratic Debate Must Include Social Security

Originally published at http://www.commondreams.org/views/2019/10/10/upcoming-democratic-debate-must-include-social-security

My wife is a democrat, and wastes her time watching these candidates tell us what they say they’ll do if elected, she doesn’t realize that the DNC will make sure no progressive polices by any candidate are considered, much less implemented. They can talk about Social Security, but you can count on them to remain loyal to their Wall Street patrons, who will direct the dems to gut and privatize social security. Democrats are a waste of time, Republicans are just a waste, period.

Tulsi Gabbard is thinking of boycotting the next debate. Good for her.

Yes, SSI should be discussed. But I disagree that one minute answers on the debate stage is the place to do it or answer any questions.
All it does is provide media with a chance to interpret a thirty second answer for you as if it compares to personally reading three pages of nuanced answer on the candidates website.
The us voters can decide if their policy is talking points or real policy.
We should advantage ourselves of the internet.
