The Republican Agenda is Bad News for the American Economy
Washington D.C – Republican senators and governors debated policy last night, and all were unable to tell the American people what their plans are for the economy. In two hours, they spent less than 5 minutes discussing the economy. Republicans aren’t working for working people; they’re working for the wealthy and corporate special interests. They have the wrong priorities.
As we’ve seen continuously in the Republican-controlled House, the Republican agenda includes threatening Social Security and repealing job-creating programs, protecting corporations from paying their fair share, and trying to prevent Medicare from negotiating lower drug costs for Americans. While voters in battleground districts believe the middle class is key to growing the economy, Republicans are offering policies that do nothing for the middle class.
