Political Reporter John Nichols of TThe Nation weighs in on overturning Roe. There’w been a leak from the Supreme Court, and the question should be: whom does it serve? Since it seems certain that the court will overturn Roe, the only other option is to codify Roe as a law. This is unlikely, since there is not enough support in Congress. That makes it more important than ever that both Senate and House seats need to be won. In addition, state posts (governors, AG’s, Secretaries of State) should be captured by progressives. With this, all other rights are in play.
We talk with Elena Schneider, Politico. She describes the Democrats’ strategy to spend millions of dollars in messaging. The economy is likely to be the main topic in 2022, though there are many more topics that should be emphasized. These are: student loans, abortion, child tax credit. The Republicans have no platform, only opposition to whatever Democrats propose.
