The Socialism Sideshow

“The socialist sideshow is hitting the road to tout their bad sales pitch to the American people during the debates in Detroit this week. No matter which night you watch, or if you tune out, ideas of government health care, axing private insurance, higher taxes, and better benefits to illegal immigrants than to our veterans will remain as the Democratic candidates demonstrate how out of touch they have become with Americans, while playing identity politics in the state of Michigan and across the country.

Rather than acknowledging the facts, socialist candidates will instead rely on debunked talking points.
