King understood racial equality was inextricably linked to economics. He asked, “What good does it do to be able to eat at a lunch counter if you can’t buy a hamburger?”

Based on a lot of great research by political messaging gurus I respect, I am convinced that the best play for Democrats consists of talking populist economics, taking on corporate special interests, and combining it with a head-on approach to race and class that raises issues of racism upfront.

What a brilliant closing argument for all of those "economically insecure" Trump voters, Larry Kudlow.
There's something missing in Republicans' closing midterm ad: Trump.
Sadly, segments like this one where our corporate media continually insists Republicans should be able to run on the economy if Trump would just stop distracting everyone with his Tweets are far too common.
John King and his political panel insist that Republicans should be able to run on a strong economy if Trump would quit distracting with things like impeachment talk, ignoring the fact that the tax cuts primarily went to the rich and they want to pay for them with cuts to the social safety net.
Pushing a "Pay Go" strategy for Democratic proposals isn't good economics or good politics.
Tax Cuts going to the top only, and most Americans barely making it.
