What to expect in tonight's Republican Rocky-Horror-Show debate?Robert Reich gives us a prediction in The Meagerness of the Republican Debates, the Smallness of the President's Solutions, and the Need for a Progressive Alternative 10/17/2011:
Republicans are debating again tomorrow night. And once again, Americans will hear the standard regressive litany: government is bad, Medicare and Medicaid should be cut, “Obamacare” is killing the economy, undocumented immigrants are taking our jobs, the military should get more money, taxes should be lowered on corporations and the rich, and regulations should be gutted.At least not aired very well by the Democratic President and his Party. Reich follows with a laundry-list of good progressive ideas that the democratic movement in the US needs to be actively advocating.
