When Are Democrats Going To Address The Issues

Kevin Felts political commentator

While watching the rhetoric building up to the 2020 elections, it appears Democrats are all following the same ole song and dance that cost Hillary the election. Rather than addressing real issues facing everyday people – jobs, balanced trade, healthcare reform, cost of higher education, Democrats are bashing Trump. regardless of who is talking, it is “Trump this and Trump that.” Bashing Trump will only work with simple minded people, like those who voted for Hillary.

The honest truth is, voters are tired of partisan politics. We want elected officials to address the issues.

Let’s take the example of gun control. One person, who shall remain nameless, was talking about new gun control laws she wanted to pass. One of the laws was to prevent peo0ple with a restraining order from buying a gun. The problem is, there are already laws on the books that are supposed to do exactly that.

The next example is equal pay for women. The woman said if she is elected president, she will make sure women make the same as men. The problem is, every state in the nation already has equal pay laws on the books, and there is already an equal pay federal law – the Equal Pay Act of 1963. So what “exactly” is she supposed to do? Pass yet more laws that will be ignored by politicians running for office?
