In debate, Democrats steer clear of economy In debate, Democrats steer clear of economy ........Over four hours of debate among what felt like a thousand Democratic candidates, a few notable topics scarcely came up. There was no heated tussle over jobs plans. No argument over how to set the national debt on a better path, and no proposals to balance the budget or change the country’s entitlement structure. There was less discussion of getting work to America’s forgotten communities than in the last election cycle........ ME: Of course they steered clear of the economy. Trump is an economic god. Lowest unemployment in 50 years, booming economy, re-negotiated new trade deals, manufacturing jobs coming back.... ....what the hell could these half-witted socialist idiots say against that!!
