The Buying of America

According to USA Today, the Democrats are preparing a platform called a “New Direction for America” in which they will promise to “reduce the cost of student loans and prescription drugs, raise the minimum wage and launch an effort to develop alternative fuels if they win back control of Congress.”

Is there anyone in their right mind who could possibly think that this is anything other than a shameless effort to buy American voters? No way! Too bad the Republicans have been doing the same things for years.
