    The full title of the agenda is "A Better Deal: Better Jobs, Better Wages, Better Future." ..................................not to be confused with the slogan for Papa John's pizza which is "Better Ingredients, Better Pizza."

    I say if you are on the right track, why change? After all, Putin is to blame, not the Dims, so why change to work for a "better future"?

    There are three overarching goals: raising wages, lowering costs for families, and giving working Americans better skills for the 21st century economy.

    raising wages
    Especially minimum wages.

    lowering costs for families

    This means "free" stuff.


    giving working Americans better skills

    Not sure about this one, but probably "free" college.

    Today just eight people have the same wealth as 3.6 billion of the world’s poorest and most vulnerable. It’s actually not even “people” anymore, as these fortunate few are all men.

    There is little evidence of meritocracy in today’s playground for the rich. More than half the world’s billionaires either inherited their wealth or accumulated it through industries prone to corruption and cronyism.

    I suggest it is very unlikely the Democrats will propose anything whatsoever to change this.

    What the hell's your problem with free stuff?

    Wouldn't you rather have a free education from tax payers money, than spend all those trillions on weapons to kill little yellow people in countries you can't point out on a map who'll just end up hating you and force you to spend more tax payer's money to kill even more of them leading more of them and their neighbours to hate you even more and forcing you to spend more money yet to kill even more of them which...

    See where this is going?

    Putin may have influenced the election, but that doesn't make him "to blame". Full blame needs to fall where it belongs, square on Kris Kobach. I'm surprised he wasn't made the chairman of the RNC (or even VP) for his efforts.

    That article doesn't seem to name them and there political affiliations.

    Bill Gates-democrat
    Warren Buffet - democrat
    Jeff Bezos - democrat
    Mark Zuckerberg - democrat
    Micheal Bloomberg- democrat

    That's cherry picking a bit out of the top 10 wealthiest people in the world, but it think you get the point.

    The sub-tagline should be, "Brought To You By Local 228". And I'm good with unions, but they really didn't work very hard on that.

    I think you will find that the "rich" states are mostly dominated by Dims, as well as CEO's and the elite in government.

    The dirty little secret is, Dims demagogue for the poor but they are actually their task masters.

    Yet looking to the rich fat cats in Corporate America saving us is genius, right?

    BWAhahahahahahah!

    Ignorant morons. The Republican Party is only FOR THE RICH. Do you qualify? Somehow I didn't think so. They're not looking out for you. They're LYING to you to get your ignorant votes. That's it, that's all. They're USING you.

    They're only in it for the money, changing the government to suit the rich, and maybe some 'brand building'.. They don't give one good goddamn about healthcare for the masses. They're not your saviors. Just like they only care about "life" only until it's born, they only care about your vote until the very millisecond you use it. At that point you become useless to them, at least until the next election.

    What flavor of FoxNews kool-aid do you like the most?

    Sean Hannity or Tucker Carlson?

    Sorry to hear that they discontinued your very favorite flavor, Bill O'Reilly.
