  •  The Ecomony, Stupid (5+ / 0-)

    Hillary actually was the first to raise the economy in the debate.  And it's more a part of her stump speech.

    Healthcare isn't the ecomony.  Change isn't the economy.  Global warming isn't the economy.

    All of those have economic dimensions, but they're not the economy.

    You've got to talk directly about the economy.

        Corporations are consolidating power in this country at an alarming rate and are contributing to the shrinking of the middle class. The richest 1% are doubling and tripling their net worth while working people and the middle class are struggling. Companies like Walmart are demanding and getting sales and property tax abatements for local and state governments which further siphons off needed funds for government services while producing astounding profits and paying CEO's exorbitant salaries. Our only recourse is to choose elected officials that will improve government oversight over corporations and end sweetheart tax deals.
