To beat back a GOP victory my fellow Dems must focus on economy in last days before midterms – Michael Moore
““The economy is a matter of life and death to the American people. That the next Republican Congress will attempt to remove it from the life and death business is a joke. They are more like ISIS than a serious political party.”
“For too long, Democrats have talked about things without having to carry them out. When you talk about economic issues, I want you to look me in the eye and say the issues I have on my agenda are those that matter to millions of Americans.”
