OUR TWO REPUBLICAN PARTIES:

Real Democratic agenda: Lower health costs, less corruption, more jobs and fairness (Cheri Bustos, Hakeem Jeffries and David Cicilline, Oct. 11, 2018, USA Today)

Democrats believe America is strongest with a health care system that prioritizes people -- not one that taxes and takes advantage of  patients. We will fight to protect your right to quality and affordable health care by reining in the costs of prescription drugs, building on the current system to make it work better for everyone, and protecting those with pre-existing conditions from Republican attempts to strip them of care.

Democrats believe America is most prosperous when every American has a shot at success and plays by the same fair rules. We know that our economy is stronger when everybody's hard work is respected and pays off with higher wages, higher incomes and decent retirement benefits. We will invest in our crumbling infrastructure to create 16 million well paid jobs rebuilding roads, bridges and ports all around this country.

And Democrats believe that government exists to serve the American people, not just those with the biggest checkbooks. On day one, we will take steps to end the culture of corruption in Washington. We will strengthen ethics laws to remove the corrosive influence of lobbyists and special interests from Congress, stop foreign money from influencing our elections and create more transparency and accountability for our leaders.

Maybe the most status quo agenda any out of power party has ever run on. Which is entirely appropriate given the health of the global economy.
