Republicans Run On Fear, Democrats Run On Protecting Health Care, Medicare & Social Security
October 23, 2018
Democrats have a clear message for Election Day: they are running to protect health care, Social Security and Medicare from Republican attempts to gut these vital programs. Republicans, on the other hand, have turned to a campaign strategy of fear and outright lies in order to get votes. The contrast couldn’t be clearer.
