    Instead of discussing tampon affordability (Yang), presidential candidates need to focus on solving major problems facing US voters. Here are the top issues and a selection of many others, which are very important to you when voting in the 2020 election:

    I think we need someone who can discuss the stupidity of our nation and the choices people make.

    I hear it day in and day out. People just think they deserve something.

    I think we do need a GOOD HONEST CONVERSATION about health care and health care costs. I am not pretending an outcome. But I sure as hell don't see Dizzy Lizzy having an answer that doesn't sound like "Fuck you..you get what I give you...like it or not".

    Our overbloated education system.

    It's really just babysitting paid for by taxes.

    And it produces shitty results (unless you like your daughter being stalked by someone who is 4 years older than she is).

    One thing that surprised me was the cost of insulin.
    After so many years of production you would think that the cost would be more affordable, WTF?? (same with epi-pens)

    I don't know.

    And I am not willing to convict anyone on it yet.

    Point being that we need an honest conversation about our goals as a society and what we are willing to do.

    We say "make people accountable" which means someone may make bad choices and die becasue they can't afford care. Sorry...that is the way it goes.

    Good reason to make S.S. personalized. If you get sick and it gets expensive...kiss your retirement goodbye.

    The Main topic will be the Dems HATING TRUMP.

    They have really offered no real policy except the LUNACY of the Green Deal to appease the Far left.
    They will promise FREE STUFF, and then say........TRUMP SUCKS...........

    That will be the issues of main stream for another stinking year.

    Carter did that with his malaise speech-look what that did for him. With an economy like this, it is apparent that improving yourself will improve your job choices. And any problem with the word personal in it should be solved,well, personally.
