There Is Only One Message The Democrats Need To Deliver To The American People — It’s the Economy Stupid

Dear average American citizen, when Trump and his GOP accomplices borrowed and then gave away those trillions of dollars in “tax cuts” to their super rich benefactors, they gave away your future. There went the money to pay for teachers, firemen and policemen. There went the money to build roads, bridges, fix the electric grid and help keep the environment clean and safe. There went the money to pay for a sensible, affordable healthcare system, not the third world, hodgepodge mess we currently endure. There went the money for basic research that would keep America competitive. There went the nation’s future locked up in offshore, private bank accounts never to be seen again — unless….

Yes, unless we Americans get those lost trillions back, America, we have no future. The Democratic Party is the party that fights for Social Security and Medicare against the Paul Ryans of the world who fight to be rid of all those things that make life possible for average folks in the modern world. Help us get those wasted trillions back to work for average Americans — vote Democratic, not autocratic.
