Trump 7, Democrats 0


Image result for democratic debate images

We had the 7th debate and another round of proposals.  I understand that presidential candidates need to promise this, that, and another thing, but this time it's so much more surreal.

So far, the common denominator of these debates is that no candidate has put a proposal about anything that has a chance to pass the U.S. Senate.  It may pass the House on a party line vote, but it will die in the upper chamber.   

I agree with Erroll Louis:  
On paper, the plans advanced by Sanders and Warren would tax corporations and wealthy Americans to collect the trillions of dollars that Medicare for All would cost. 
But in the real world, there’s no reason to believe such a plan would have a prayer of passage in Congress.
Mr. Louis is right.  In other words, reality is going to have the last word and it won't be anything like what we are hearing at these debates.  

The debate moderators have not served the nation well.  They have not challenged these candidates on issues, from universal care to pulling troops out of Iraq to gun control to saying that late terms abortion is a reproductive right.

What's the score after 7 debates?   Trump 7, Democrats 0!

At least President Trump is delivering, from trade deals to jobs.  On the other side, the Democrats are just talking nonsense.
