No New Ideas
Universal healthcare is a bankruptcy inducing mess in every country where it has been tried. It leads to long wait times, rationing and higher taxes. Sure, these programs work great as long as you're healthy, it's when you get sick and actually need the program that it really fails you.
Cap & Trade was tried in England actually resulted in an increase in carbon emissions, and tons of corruption within the program. It has failed utterly and yet we are wanting to repeat that failure.
Why won't Congress actually copy actions that have actually been proven to work? Like lowering taxes, especially corporate taxes.
So the new Democrat campaign slogan should be, "We won't repeat the failed Republican policies. We'll repeat the failed European ones instead."
