Dear Commons Community,
The Democratic National Committee is getting set to roll out a new slogan next week that is aimed at drawing attention to the party’s economic message. Yesterday, The Washington Post reported that congressional Democrats will release a de facto 2018 campaign platform focused on highlighting their positions on economic issues, under the slogan “Better Skills, Better Jobs, Better Wages.”
According to the Post, the platform will highlight Democrats’ policy goals, including “tax increases on the rich, affordable college, infrastructure spending, higher wages, job training, paid family leave.”
This is a good move by the Democrats in that they need to have a message that will appeal to voters across the political spectrum and that goes beyond Trump-bashing.
