#2 - Big government dominates Democratic primaries
This week on The Beltway Outsiders Podcast, host Daniel Vaughan talks about two reports from Axios this week on how Democrats are moving to the far-left on all significant issues. It's a substantial departure from Democratic politics only three years ago. Topics covered in this are Medicare-for-All, the Green New Deal, and various forms of debt cancellation getting pitched by Presidential contenders. The primary driver of this shift is Bernie Sanders, and we go through the Axios report on how Sanders wants to restructure or referee every part of your life. The two quick-hit topics this week are a Monmouth poll showing Biden tied with Warren and Sanders at the top of the ticket; and a viral tweet on eugenic abortions. Thanks for listening!
