But truth be told, what good is SPONSORING a bill IF IT DOES NOT GET PASSED?
Every Congress Critter includes introducing and sponsoring bills as accomplishments, regardless of passage or not. It’s as non partisan as it gets.

What? She is right?

Stop falling for the intellectual elitism fraud Bush and Clinton sold you.

She is the only one on stage not playing political games and lying to your face.

Also, having more people go to college doesn't make us a more "intelligent" society. If we push everyone through college, it lowers the value of the degree - and likely lowers the caliber of the education.
A middle-class worker "absorbs" costs in indirect ways. College grads are more likely to volunteer, give money to charity, be civic minded, be less dependent on government programs and services than those with a high school degree. These government programs include Medicaid, housing subsidies, nutrition assistance, unemployment benefits, and other public assistance.

The restoring decency thing is a winning angle I think. Delaney and Williamson win here.

Agree on Buttigieg.

I think Klobuchar is firming up her qualifications to be an effective VP.
True--Warren really does.

Klobuchar is smart but doesn't have President chops, imo. VP would be a solid role for her, yep.

That's because college grads are already a subset of smarter-than-average people willing to make sacrifices for their future. If we dumb down college to send everyone through, at no cost to them, it becomes a 4-year adult camp (with some classes thrown in), and those societal benefits of college grads disappear.

Ok Hickenlooper you didn't win climate change in CO....you didn't beat the NRA either.

You weren't a bad Gov but don't celebrate games you never won.
